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
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
NO EMERGENCY RESPONSE SYSTEM
POOR HEALTH MONITORING
CONCERNS ABOUT SAFETY
NO TRUSTED SUPPORT SYTEM
To solve the utter inhuman condition of elder citizens, being deprived of their normal life aspects. We address the injustice of old age being ignored & unheard by creating technology driven platform for connecting socially committed youth of our country with aged in need
creating a well-structured integrated platform that enables us to connect socially driven youth of our country with elder citizens who are in need of love and support
The services range from mentally supporting chat sessions to medical aid, travel aid, technical, legal and other assistance as per requirement also possibilities of arranging gatherings of same age groups and fostering possibilities with old age homes are considered.
We want them to have the love and support they wish, at their homes not far away in an old age home. We’re enabling at least 50 citizens to receive ours service initially.
On another side, it promotes regular volunteering culture among youth
