Re: Elderly Care
- Dear Ms. Thomas- went through the survey questionnaire - it covers
residential care facilities for seniors in India . Day care programs
are for seniors who live by them selves and come to the day care for
recreation, companionship, income generation programs are provided for
those in the lower socio economic bracket , medical camps/medications
etc. The services and activities vary according to the economic status
and needs of the elderly.
There are Day cares around the country mostly funded by the Govt of
India under the Integrated Program for Older Persons IPOP by the
Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment .
I work as a Consultant for the Nightingales Medical Trust based in
Bangalore -and am involved in conducting training programs for people
who run Old Age Homes in South India - 4 Southern States of Karnataka,
Kerala, A.P. and T.N.
Nightingales runs a Day care for the low income seniors where a mid
day meal is provided and income generating activities etc are also
They also have what is called Enrichment Centres for the educated,
retired group of Seniors.
You survey questions covers full time residential care and there are
more than 500 homes funded by Govt of India and a larger number
There are many Senior Citizen Forums /associations and a few are
active in Research/documentation etc.
So have a look at a few sites and if you would like to correspond with
me, feel free and will try to help as much as i can.
Best wishes Dechu
