Oldage home

 

Ageing is a natural process. Every individual has to undergo this inevitable physical and psychological change      and  it is not an adversity, though advresities are part of life. Till recently the needs of old parents were looked after by their children as long as the concept of joint family system thrived. However, due to changes in modern living, concepts, aspirations of youngsters, the joint family system collapsed. Youngsters are yearning for greener pastures at home and abroad . High cost of living and squeezing living conditions in the cities resulted in the aged being considered a burden by the younger generation. Psychological adjustments in both elders and youngsters are widening due to living styles of past and present.

 

In this changed atosphere elders have to be looked fter and kept happy in their remaining span of life. Parents left out by thir wards in their ripe old age wish to spend their life with dignity with their savings or pension they earn. Since he conditions of their children is becoming minimal due to various reasons, the role of old age homes becomes relevant. There cannot be any stigma attached for keeping parents in old age homes and no ego should exist. The ultimate aim is to provide a safe and acceptable living style to elders. This can be met with a variety of old age homes up in many cities and metros.

 

At a juncture when joint family system is slowly fading away and aged being considered burden by the younger    generation, Sri Vaddepally Narsing Rao of Kukatpally purchased 3 acres of land worth Rs 25 Lakhs at Bowarmpet  village in R.R. district and donated it to the association to construct a home for the senior citizens. Hence it was named as VNR senior citizens home. Initially the project was to be completed mainly with support from the community members in India and abroad but not much help was received. Sri Vaddepalli Narsing Rao has further contributed substantial amount and also mobilized major part of donations for the construction from the community and outside as well.
