Marginalized Elders

The growth of the aged population, which is either dependent on the young or is unemployed or are working for food during the evening years of their life, is a challenge to the social security systems in India. Unlike in other countries, elders in India are left to fend for themselves. For daily wage earners or low income groups, meeting daily requirements itself is a challenge, let alone saving for their sunset years.

Lack or absence of financial independence creates a stressful life and invites problems including physical and mental health issues. Furthermore, if the children are struggling in a similar state of poverty, the senior citizen gets tagged as being an added burden on the family.

Loneliness is the other constant worry that accompanies elders with financial problems. Elders long for companionship with other like-minded individuals who can understand their situation and with whom they can confide in. The need for belongingness is significantly seen in these elders.

NMT has conceived and established several projects to assist these marginalized elderly who need assistance for daily sustenance and are left to fend for themselves.

1. Sandhya Kirana

Sandhya Kirana is a noble initiative by Nightingales Medical Trust to rehabilitate elders who are economically challenged.

As day care centres for the elderly from the lower socio economic strata, the primary focus is to help elders earn an income and live a life of dignity with access to adequate health care. The highlight of the centres is the strong emotional attachment that the elders develop amongst them.

Nightingales Sandhya Kirana currently has more than 80 members at the two centres and on an average, 60 elderly attend the day care centres on a daily basis. All services provided here are free of cost.
