Asha Care Centre for Senior Citizen

Introduction

Introduction

Our parents take care of our needs and aspirations and try their best to keep us happy and successful in life. But as they grow older, we often neglect them and consider them as a burden. This not only makes them feel sad, but also makes them feel unwanted. As a result, they no longer are able to live with their children. Asha Deep Foundation respects these ‘senior citizens’ and welcomes them in the Day Care Centre to fulfil their basic needs, improves their quality of life and treat them with dignity and respect. The prime motive behind this project is to make them share their lifelong experiences with each other and provide a certain relief from their loneliness.
