“SHRAVAN” – A Support program for the old and very old
Old age is an inevitable outcome for all. With old age comes a strong depletion of physical, emotional as well as financial resources, which makes people more and more vulnerable as their age increases. Hence one’s dependence on others with age increases and it becomes important for a society as a whole to address the special needs of the elderly.
Keeping this view in mind, the program Shravan is designed to help the older generation, just like the ideal son Shravan Kumar, who had dedicated his life to comforting his parents. The program aims at identifying the needs of the elderly in Delhi, namely their health, financial, physical as well as emotional needs and collaborating with the various involved agencies to design and implement intervention strategies that would benefit the old the most.
