Challenge

In Andhra Pradesh, India the aged women become widows and unproductive. Those who have children they do not care them at that age as they give lame excuse of "Busy / engaged." Nowadays many sons do not care for parents and even throw them out of their homes or leave them at aged homes to admit and grab the assets. Grannies children are not in a position to care them. The aged women face hypertension, diabetic and other geriatric problems.

Solution

Project will support 30 grannies through residential care in comfortable commune living, food, medical aid &recreation. This is home away from home for grannies. Conduct counseling sessions and home visits to the families, celebrate birthdays and festivals as per local culture. Provide recreation through television, newspapers /magazines. Arrange youth teams to interact with grannies to raise public conscious on aged issues. organisation will take the responsibility of provide them humble homage

Long-Term Impact

30 aged grannies will have quality of life with care and increased health that helps in increased life span. With commune living, the aged women issues look small as they see other women with similar or much severe problems. Youth develop social outlook towards aged that helps them to support aged in their own families and in neighborhood
