NGO Profile :
Agewell Foundation is a non-profit working in New Delhi and National Capital Region (NCR) for the welfare and empowerment of the elderly since 1999. They endeavour to bring about a change in society's perceptions of older persons, while promoting improved interactions between generations. In addition to their work in Delhi, Agewell has set up a two-tier network of over 7,500 primary and 80,000 secondary volunteers spread over 640 districts in India. Agewell Foundation has been recognised for its efforts and the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) has granted it Special Consultative Status at the United Nations.

Their programmes include:

  • Helpline for Older Persons: With the help of trained counsellors, Agewell reaches out to around 25,000 elderly on a daily basis. These counsellors identify and assist the elderly with family and social problems, financial and health related issues, etc. It works as a bridge between the assistance seekers and assistance providers. In FY15, nearly 21,400 older persons benefitted through this Helpline service.
  • Holistic healthcare: A healthcare campaign was initiated to provide healthcare equipment (walkers, wheel chairs, spectacles, medicines, diapers, etc.) free of cost to the destitute elderly. Agewell organises camps for distribution of healthcare equipment (around 5,000 people benefitted in FY15) and also free hearing screening camps (over 1,400 people benefitted in FY15).
  • Research and Advocacy Centre: Agewell conducts studies in areas relating to ageing and uses these findings to advocate on issues concerning the welfare of the elderly with the government, international agencies and others. It also carried out a nationwide survey to study the issues related to gender discrimination faced by the elderly in India.
  • Share the Warmth campaign: Agewell set up collection points at locations throughout Delhi to collect donations (monetary or clothing) and sensitizing the youth on their responsibilities. In FY15, they distributed more than 275,000 woollens to around 175,000 destitutes.
  • Employment Exchange: Agewell helps provide opportunities to the retired elderly in areas such as consultancy, accountancy, tuitions and training.
  • Family Membership Scheme: It aims at providing family support to the elderly living alone in Delhi. A team of trained counsellors spend time with the elderly, provide medical support, guide on legal matters and help them pay their bills.
