Program Description

The population of senior citizens is increasing as life expectancy is increasing. Families in urban areas are becoming nuclear and smaller, as a result of which there are fewer people available in the house to provide care and comfort to the ageing.

Due to the increase in number of the elderly population their needs and problems are increasing too. There are many senior citizens who are without any financial support and are living below the poverty line. There are senior citizens with small pensions but most of it goes for medical treatment and hardly anything is left for nutritional support. For such needy senior citizens, Dignity Foundation has started Ration Service. The needy elderly are given dry rations for sustenance every month. The senior citizens are then tracked through home visits.

The elderly deserve dignity in their last days and a little support can help them with the dignity they deserve.
