Contribute to bring back their dignity

WHY DOES CARING FOR THE ELDERLY MATTER

With an increased life expectancy the number of elders in India is rapidly increasing. Once their health starts deteriorating and medical and care costs increase, they become a burden to the family, especially if they are on meagre incomes. A centre, like the one Elder Care provides, also addresses the loss of dignity elders have to bare when they become dependent on others for their daily activities in their twilight years.

They often feel very lonely and dependent.
THE PLAN

The funds raised will be used to buy a month’s supply of medicines and medical supplies like adult diapers and cotton wool for 50 elders under palliative care. Plus it will cover one month’s cost for milk, vegetables and other groceries for the four nutritious meals provided.

Young volunteers and caregivers enjoy spending time with the elders.
