Letter From The Founder

Letter From The Founder

Dear Friends,

Challenge of caring for a growing number of elderly is yet to be faced squarely. As people grow older, they encounter several problems. Some are physical and obviously age related, some are due to the social structure, break up of joint family system, poverty, loss of employment and widowhood. Some emotional problems like loss of self - esteem, lowered life satisfaction, dependence and depression, feeling of being ignored by family members are increasing day by day.

The advent of modernization, industrialization, urbanization, occupational differentiation, education, and growth of individual philosophy has eroded the traditional values that vested authority with elderly.Elder abuse involves a violation of the fundamental human right to safety and can include neglect, physical abuse, psychological or emotional abuse and financial abuse. With an aging world population, the incidence of elder abuse is likely to increase dramatically. Samarpan Old Age Home was set up in the year 2005 with the aim of providing home comforts and peace of mind to seniors seeking peace and calm. It is to be run as a nonprofit institution managed by the Gayatri Pariwar Trust, Kursi Road, Lucknow.

Your’s sincerely,

Major V. K. Khare
