INJUSTICE

Elder people are deprived of their normal life and happiness. As per MoSJE there are 120 million elders in India'. A common social stigma exists towards elder citizens, considering they need only hospital & prayer life. None wish to live their second childhood in a lonely corner.


WHO & HOW

Elder citizens spending their retirement life are not being treated fair enough in our system, We have analysed the situation and divided them into 3 categories

  • Totally ignored & has no support in their life

  • Financially self stable but away from someone who really cares

  • The majority category who have everything but got alone at the late evening of life being away from loved ones in this fast hectic world

They never wish to be taken away to an old age care facility to lead their second childhood they wanted to be cared and treated with love and compassion within their homes, not only medical support but every other aspects they loved to enjoy in their early life, they need someone to listen and ask about their day, they need assistance in other sectors and needs in life, they wanted to be connected to the community and never want to be left behind alone


WHY

  • SOCIETY- The social stigma, considering getting aged a reason to be kept away from a normal life in some dark corner of the house.

  • FAMILY- The nuclear families where human bonds are weakening due to fast and hectic life.

  • COMMUNITY SYSTEM- Our systems are not equipped with facilities to provide elder citizens a peaceful life


ROOT CAUSES

  • SOCIAL STIGMA

  • IGNORANCE

  • COMMUNITY SYSTEM

  • UNACCEPTABLE SOLUTIONS

  • NO EMERGENCY RESPONSE SYSTEM

  • POOR HEALTH MONITORING

  • CONCERNS ABOUT SAFETY

  • LONELINESS EPIDEMIC
