need of old age Homes

According to a recent report, over 80 lakh old persons in India are homeless. Their survival issues have doubled due of the global COVID-19 outbreak. Because of their poverty, the majority of these old folks have been left behind by their own relatives. They are forced to beg for their lives because of their old age. There is no one to care for them in their latter years when they experience severe disease, loss of mobility, or psychosocial distress. In India, a large number of volunteers step up to rescue destitute individuals from the streets. With the assistance of the police department, they then place the individuals in appropriate care facilities. 

Senior persons living in old age homes are given a dignified life with safe and secure shelter. We as a society must reach out and assist them. Supporting senior living facilities that perform better and are ethical must therefore be seen as part of our societal responsibilities. Homes in and around Chennai.

Currently, Surya, our beloved Sarathy's best friend, manages the Home on his behalf and in his honour. All of Sarathy's friends and well-wishers are encouraging Surya to carry on with this admirable initiative, which was started with pure intentions.

Without sufficient support from the general public, every shelter home would experience financial difficulties. To Idhaya Vaasal Elders Home, as the cost of renting the building accounts for one-third of the overall operating expenses. The cost of groceries, prescription medicines, and bed-care pharma supplies makes up another significant portion of the monthly budget. The Trust has long dreamed of operating these care services on its own premises.

The Aarathy Trust purchased 7,020 square feet to materialize the dream home's concept and offered to develop a large structure with cutting-edge geriatric care amenities on 4,500 square feet of that space. The proposed new two-story structure will accommodate 100 destitute and poor elderly people and offer free meals, bedding, healthcare, and recreational amenities. We request all generous donors to support this noble cause.
