Banchbo Healing Touch


"touch that never hurts"

Banchbo healing touch is Kolkata’s First 24 X 7 Elderly Healthcare Initiative to cater the medical problems of senior citizens at home. Dr Dhires Kumar Chowdhury founded Banchbo when he was a medical student about 15 years ago with friends in Garia and with the patronage of Dr Sudipto Sen, the then director of Woodlands Hospital. As an attending doctor, he found the elderly in need of not just medical help but love and care. Nuclear families and the hectic pace of life in urban India have isolated the old. Banchbo healing touch was born as an organisation on the 1st January, 2007 with valuable guidance and active support from Dr. A. K. Roy Choudhury (Chief Medical Adviser) and many more other eminent doctors to provide medical attention at the patient's home, while monitoring their progress on a regular basis.
