With their dwindling financial resources and weakening health, elderly are often being perceived as a burden and even while living within the family, may face violence and neglect. Many senior citizens are living without children. The most severely isolated and lonely are people over 75, particularly older women, those who are widowed and those living alone.
The old age home set up by The Kalgidhar Society at Baru Sahib, Himachal Pradesh, is a home for numerous elderly people.
Older adults enjoy the beauty of great outdoors in The Valley of Divine Peace. The center provides a variety of activities to meet diverse needs. Here, in an atmosphere of understanding and respect, new friendships are formed. Senior citizens are provided with utmost care. All their daily needs including food, clothing, medical services and lodging are taken care by The Kalgidhar Society. The spiritual atmosphere facilitates them to recite on the Divine Name.
