At Noora Health, our mission is to train patients and their families with high-impact health skills to improve outcomes and save lives
We turn hospital hallways and waiting rooms into classrooms and enable family members to provide care in the hospital and at home. This is how it works. . .
We tap into an available, highly compassionate and willing resource. The family member.
Activate with Education
We turn hospital hallways and waiting rooms into classrooms where family members learn high-impact, hands-on health skills.
Family members are able to practice the skills in the safety of the hospital before they return home.
Recovery with Confidence
Families return home with confidence. As a result, we reduce return hospital visits, reduce the incidence of preventable complications and replace anxiety with confidence for the caregiver.

Aditi takes care of her husband at home after surgery. She is not literate and was apprehensive about the training program at first. She completed the training, and when we visited them in their rural village in north east India several months later, she had nearly every word from the training still memorized and had practiced the skills perfectly to her husband’s benefit.
