Crisis: According to a recent Census finding there are 104 million senior citizens in India. The study showed how most of them are abandoned by their respective families or there is a lack of care for them. In worse cases, there is also mental or physical abuse involved. Many NGOs have stepped up to address this issue and provide senior citizens with proper care and dignity, Aastha Foundation being one of them.
Basant Prabha Visawa (BPV) is an initiative by Aastha Foundation. It is a proposal to establish residential housing and assisted living for senior citizens. BPV has a capacity to accommodate at least 100 senior citizens. They look forward to conduct regular health check-up camps, Alzheimer's awareness camps, stress-relieving session, workshops to make senior citizens technology friendly, etc. The organization has also started training several 'Care Givers' through their certified course in Geriatric Care, so far they have 58 candidates registered for the course undergoing training.
