With the support of Karnataka State’s Department for Different-abled and Senior Citizen Empowerment, a Day care center was started for senior citizen in the year 2017. It can accommodate 50 senior citizens aged 60 and above.They are provided with lunch, tea and snacks while they are at the Center. Diabetic camps are held once in a month in addition to daily health checkups and free medicines.
They spend their time actively whenever possible like reading newspapers and magazines, doing yoga or meditation, etc. in addition to recreation, Income generation activities like making newspaper pen, paper cover, rangoli powder making, etc. are available. We have adopted CC camera and Biometric for Senior citizen and for GASS staff to ensure safety.
Senior Citizens have also participated in Cultural and sports activities at District and State level competitions. They got 15 prizes at district and 5 state level. To assure continued support even after the project support period, we have applied for Free Senior Citizen card and Sandhy Suraksha Scheme.
