Story

As India experiences sustained growth, the population will become healthier and live longer. Research indicates that 12% of India’s population will be over the age of 60 by 2030 and according to the UN Population Fund; this is expected to increase to 19.4% by 2050. As the number of senior citizens increases – from 10.38 Crore in 2011 to an estimated 17.3 Crore in 2026 and 30 Crore in 2050 - the need for programs for their welfare increases. Increased life expectancy, coupled with the nuclearization of families, dependency on others for their day-to-day maintenance, and age-related difficulties; pose a tough challenge to the lives of elderly people. 

In rural areas of Bihar, 70% of the elderly live, migration of younger people for economic reasons and the poor quality of medical services, leads to a grim situation, especially for those above 60 years of age. In this situation, there is an urgent need to set up an old age home to improve the quality of life of the senior citizens, especially indigent senior citizens by providing basic amenities like shelter, food, medical care, and entertainment opportunities and by encouraging productive and active ageing in the project area.

The project will address the problems identified above by undertaking the following interventions:

Shelter home: A spacious rented shelter home will be established at Punpun, Patna. The house will be adequately ventilated rooms with sufficient space between the beds of the beneficiaries for their easy movement. Provision for storage of the belongings of the beneficiaries should be available in the homes. Floors should be anti-slippery. The home will be equipped with Furniture, Chairs, Beds, and Mattresses (along with bed sheets and pillows), Almirahs for belongings of beneficiaries, utensils, gas stove, fan, desert cooler, water purifier, grinder/juicer, Hot case/ microwave oven, water tank, electric motor & pump, washing machine, television, computer, refrigerator, inverter, water cooler, geyser, and CCTV cameras. 

Nutrition to senior citizens: Adequate quantity, good quality, and variety in foodstuff (as per local conditions) containing an average of 1700 calories and 50 grams of protein will be provided to the beneficiaries, every day. 

Medical facilities/ Medicare: There should have a first aid kit (as advised by Doctor), a glucometer, a BP monitoring machine, a weighing machine, and medicines, as prescribed by a Doctor. As far as possible, the Doctor's residence should be near the project. Regular health camps to be organized by implementing agencies in coordination with the district administration. 

Recreation: At each centre, the implementing agency must provide Books, 3-4 Magazines, 2-3 newspapers (in regional/ local language), Outings at nearby places (2 in a month)- religious/ cultural, Games like caroms, chess, cards, one cable connection, one computer with internet connection. The shelter home will have a separate room for reading for the beneficiaries.
