Oldage

Old age is an unavoidable part of our life cycle and should be lived gracefully rather than grudgingly. In today's fast paced world we only start noticing signs of old age much after the gradual process is well underway.

There are 728 Old Age Homes in India today. Detailed information of 547 homes is available. Out of these, 325 homes are free of cost while 95 old age homes are on pay & stay basis, 116 homes have both free as well as pay & stay facilities and 11 homes have no information. A total of 278 old age homes all over the country are available for the sick and 101 homes are exclusively for women. Kerala has 124 old age homes which is maximum in any state.

The elderly, who have provided their services and support to the society, feel unloved and neglected at this phase of their lives. Their deteriorating physical strength and other geriatric illnesses add to their difficulties.

Dedicated to improving the status for India's senior citizens, we provide them medical services, poverty alleviation and income generation schemes in urban and rural India. We welcomes all those who wish to support, donate or sponsor online and those who want to volunteer to help elderly citizens.

The secret of a good old age is simply an honorable pact with solitude.
