Mane finally finds his true family at the shelter

Mane is a senior citizen who lives in the Deshmukh Old Age Home. Mane lived in Satara before he came to the shelter home. He was married but the couple didnaEUR(tm)t have any children.

They lived together for a while. Unfortunately as age caught on with Mane, his wife didnaEUR(tm)t want to live with him anymore. With no children or any other family, he continued to live alone.

He was unemployed and mostly did odd jobs. With age-related issues catching up he became lonely and depressed.

ThataEUR(tm)s when his brother got to know about the Deshmukh Old Age Home. He approached the home seeking shelter for his brother. After due verification Mane was found eligible for admission and was admitted.

At the shelter home, Mane has a safe place to stay. He also receives nutritious food and medical care. He has made friends with the other residents. The staff at the home came to know about ManeaEUR~s interest in farming.

The old age home has some land around the home where vegetables are grown and are used in the kitchen. The staff wanted to keep him occupied with something that he was interested in. They encouraged him to take care of work on the farm of the home.

Mane enjoyed farming and began to look forward to his time on the farm every day. He sends his days mostly on the farm and attending satsangs (prayer meetings) in the evening,

His whole personality changed within a few months in the shelter. He is a happier person now.

He has forgotten his past like a bad dream. The old age home is now his home and the residents are his family.

Your help can make many more seniors like Mane live their golden years under a safe shelter. You can donate to the grocery expenses of the elderly who live in the old-age home and help them with nutritious food. You can give with confidence because every program listed is GIVEASSURED.

Program Description

Neptune Foundation runs an old age home aEUR~Parampujya Kailaswasi Nanasaheb Vithoba Deshmukh Vriddh AshramaEUR(tm) at Kalungan Village in Maharashtra to protect the neglected old. The home is set in a serene and lush 3 acres of land amidst the Sahyadri Range just 4 km from the Bhandardhara dam. It also boasts of a scenic background of the Mt. Kalsubai.

Donations to this program help in covering the cost of grocery, vegetables, milk, cooking gas, toiletries, cook and kitchen helper for one senior citizen.

The elderly from nearby rural areas, villages around Rajur, Akola, and Nasik approach Deshmukh old age home seeking shelter. These are the elderly who are neglected by their own families or have no one to take care of them at all.

The old age home exclusively admits underprivileged senior citizens over the age of 60 years. The economic and social condition of the person seeking help is verified from the Sarpanch of the village the person is from. After verification, the applicants are admitted in the old age home.

These residents live in the shelter home till the end of their natural life. They continue to be assisted even if they become bedridden or not able to do their activities of daily living due to illness or age.

The residents receive four wholesome meals a day. The morning begins with tea and breakfast, which consists of poha or upma or sheera, lapsi or sprouts. Tea along with toast or biscuits or idli or some dry snacks form evening snacks. Lunch is generally chapatti, vegetables, dal, rice. Dinner is usually bajra or jawar roti, sabji, dal, and rice.

All the needs from boarding to food to healthcare to emotional wellbeing are taken care absolutely free of cost. The secure, green shelter and has a total capacity of 200.

The home houses 19 men and 32 women and is a destination for less privileged elderly to live for the rest of their life in peace, health, and dignity.

When you donate to this program, you help destitute elderly citizens with access to a safe shelter and care in their golden years.

Program Update

Diwali was celebrated with the senior citizens in the 3rd quarter. New clothes were given to them with special meals arranged. The entire Old Age Home was lit up to give it a festive look. There were story telling sessions that created a beautiful mythological atmosphere. Festivity songs were melodiously sung. Then we celebrated the Republic day in January with the Indian National Flag flying high. All were explained the importance of the day. There were stories that were shared among all about the early days.Holi was celebrated with the puja being done & the traditional way of putting colour. This brought a smile on the faces of all.

Story from the field

Parigha Subhash Deshmukh, Age-65years,comes from a very small village,Kothul,Taluka- Akole,District-Ahmednagar. Parigha used to stay with her husband & two children. Her elder son works in Gujarat & her younger son is handicapped. Her husband is a drunkard who used to verbally as well as physically abuse her on a daily basis. With nowhere to go she had lost all hope. Being verbally and physically abused had become a way of life for her. She was made to feel unwanted and discarded. She was waiting for her death. That’s when her relative admitted her at our Old Age Home. After staying with us her physical as well as mental condition has improved a lot as she now feels that there is someone to look after her, love her & care for her. She has found a new home and we have found a mother to look after.
