Welcome to Plus Academy of Healthcare Emergency & Disaster Preparedness
Plus Academy of Healthcare Emergency and Disaster Management is a unit of Plus At Home Lifecare Pvt Ltd. Simply stated: If there are people there would be needs for health. There would be problems related to health. There would be emergencies. We have a choice - Believe that they are not going to happen to us or be prepared to respond to them if and when they arise. Plus At home Lifecare Pvt. Ltd. has managed to unravel the mystery of healthcare and provide solutions to manage anyone falling sick at home by being a single point of contact for all needs in healthcare since 2006. It has been set up to empower people to take control of their own health safety, emergency & disaster preparedness. It is well known that a large number of people are losing their life to untimely death. People are losing life not because they have to die - they are losing life because they have no idea about the risks to their life. They have very little idea how to identify a medical emergency. They have very little knowledge on how to respond to emergencies as and when they occur. This is an attempt to create awareness, impart skills that may be life saving as well as improving the quality of life.
