Old Age Homes and Retirement Township in India


Life expectancy is steadily increasing, but cities are no longer safe nor friendly
neighbors a certainty. Alternative housing for the aged is a practical lifestyle solution
that developers are now ready to provide.

The fading joint family system in India and other innumerable factors have given rise
to west-inspired phenomena of old age homes. Surprising cost of living and scanty
return on savings have almost pushed these senior citizens on roads. Such an act
has triggered the security net of the helpless, which has almost vanished in many
states in India with Kerala topping the list.
 

Elders have started walking out of their own home in search of a journey that
promises peace, joy and celebration of life with a group of people who share the
same boat of life (the wrecked one). However not may rather none of them receive
it. A growing number of financially independent senior citizens now prefer to stay in
retirement resorts instead of languishing in the quintessential old-age homes that
they feel are “overcrowded” and “unsafe”.
 

Also Insecurity, loneliness and lack of companionship — some of life’s hard-toswallow problems — become a daily reality for these elderly persons whose children either settle abroad, or in some other state, for better career opportunities. The concept of retirement resorts or complexes is gradually emerging as the most
viable option among the senior members of society who are financially independent.
 

They want to live with dignity and, above all, want to be secure.
Townships and residential colonies exclusively for senior citizens are now coming up
in the state where they can relocate and spend the sunset of their lives without
bothering about paying electricity bills, cooking and getting prompt medical care.
It is this combination of physical and emotional satisfaction that today’s retirement
homes strive to provide. From an era where old-age homes were synonymous with
charitable institutions for the indigent and orphaned elderly, we moved some years
ago to the far more refined paid homes, where amenities were good and services like
on-site medical check-ups and transport arrangements were provided. Now,
retirement homes are set to enter a third phase of evolution.
 

So I have found few good Retirement Township and Old Age homes for
people who can afford them. Also you can find NGO’s Associations working
for the cause of Elderly.
 

No doubt the best place for elders is their own home,but.............................
