Cheshire Homes India, Bangalore Unit works to bring meaningful changes in the lives of people with disabilities. To achieve this, they run two Homes - one that provides educational and residential facilities to more than 25 differently abled girls, and the other that provides love, care, and security to elderly/differently abled women.
The girls are given educational support along with skills training, which helps them become more confident and independent. The elderly residents are given adequate medical care and residential support. Apart from this, Cheshire Homes also provides training in Basic Computer Skills, English Language, and Life Skills, after which the students are provided support for placements.
Cheshire Homes has helped change the lives of so many people. With the aim to carry forward Group Captain Leonard Cheshire's mission to provide care and support people with disabilities, Cheshire Home India, Bangalore Unit was begun in 1961.
Free residential facilities in a beautiful old-fashioned cottage in a serene and tranquil environment are provided for the residents. The residents thrive with this wonderful quality of life, nutritious and healthy food and an environment filled with residents alike.
The management of the Home is in the hands of the able sisters of Daughters of Charity. The sisters display a commendable spirit of energy, commitment, and perseverance. Be it coaxing an elderly to eat, or giving their shoulders when some of the residents want to let go their depression or taking a firm stand when they need to be - the sisters play their role to the exception.
The home aims to build a society in which every differently abled person can enjoy their rights and has the opportunity to fulfil their potential.
