About Us
Main factors that influence life of elderly in India:
  • Changing family structure has influenced life of elderly (Nuclear families in place of joint families and engagement of women in jobs)
  • Burden of physical distress
  • Economic dependence: Failure of traditional support system
  • With almost no existing social support
  • Social-cultural issues
  • Absence of appropriate alternative care system
The globalization has made care of our elderly a challenge for Society and Government as well. Shehjaar Homes intends to facilitate elderly care under phases:-

In Phase I of the programme, well-equipped model day care centres in leased accommodation will come up in Pune. These centres will:
  • Be equipped with facilities to keep elderly happily engaged through the day.
  • Obviate loneliness, boredom and depression to elderly.
  • Strengthen the inter-generational relationships.
  • Give Training to the care givers attending elderly with age related diseases.
  • Act as a nodular centre for extending any emergency help for elderly in need.
Shehjaar Homes Day Centres will be operated on cost basis to users to ensure the quality and sustainability. Costs will be subsidized by providing interest support from Donation deposits and Govt. grants wherever possible.

Reservation for economically less privileged will be maintained.

Shehjaar Homes will be seeking help from expert institutions like, Help Age India, International Longevity Centre, Silver Innings Foundation, Geriatric Society of India, International Federation of Ageing and All India Senior Citizens Confederation to ensure health, well-being, welfare and dignity of senior citizens.

In Phase II the company will consider building/maintaining the resorts for the elderly in need. This is a capital intensive process.

Lately social scientists in the field do not encourage separation of elderly from their families. Shehjaar Homes will watch the progress and success of the recent Government Initiative in this regard.
