A Dignified Life for every Elderly
  • Crisis: Reportedly, more than 65% of senior citizens in India are dependent on others for their day to day maintenance. Population of the elderly is estimated to grow by 200+ million by 2050 and yet only 3% of NGOs are working towards security of the elderly. Dignity Foundation has been committed to bettering socio-economic conditions of the elderly since 1997.
  • Programs: i) Day Care Centres: The aim of the centres (Mumbai & Chennai) is to provide a stimulating and conducive environment where the senior citizens suffering from dementia can maintain practical and social skills and enhance self-reliance. There are Day Care Centres for the elderly providing holistic services to all. The Centres impact 234+ beneficiaries. ii) Loneliness Mitigation Centre: There are 30 centres in 7 cities being run by the NGO. The centres were set up to build peer support network for senior citizens with an idea of promoting social interaction for their mental well-being. iii) Helpline Program: Dignity Foundation has been running this Helpline since 1995 to empower elders to reach out for assistance against abuse. The program handles around 950-1,000 calls per month on average. iv) The Ration Program: Dignity Foundation supports senior citizens by providing a months worth of ration to poor senior citizens. DF also reaches out to slum localities in Mumbai through the Dignity on Wheels outreach program.
  • Outcome: Dignity Lifestyle Retirement Township launched by the NGO is spread over 25 acres of land located 90km from Mumbai at Neral and offers a secure environment for senior citizens with assisted living facilities.
