Homes That Assist Begin New Life at 60

06 Aug 2016

SENIOR Housing that assist begin new life at 60.
It wasn't quite Wembley Arena and his guitar turned off at times, however Raghav Prabhu finally lived his dream before an appreciative audience of 50-strange neighbours at their senior housing campus last month. Now he's thinking of starting a band. SENIOUR HOUSING THAT ASSIST BEGIN NEW LIFE AT 60.Growing up in the 1960s, Prabhu, a Beatles fan, deepfroze his passion for music to focus on solving Igor Irodov's physics troubles. An engineering job, then a management role and family never left him time for himself untill he retired in 2011 and moved into his retirement nest with his spouse. When the campus management employed a guitar instructor, Prabhu became the first to join, and 3 years on he can play "tolerably well". Prabhu and many of other senior citizens like him are choosing to play life's final innings on their very own terms, and a host of serviced housing tasks are enabling them to live together in a safe, comfortable and hassle-free surroundings with dignity. "At some point of our teens and middle age, we focused on career and bringing up children," stated Kamini Bhandari, 67, who retired as a senior manager from TCS and lives in Ashiana Utsav, a seniors-only housing project in Bhiwadi near Delhi. "Now, the time has come for us to live for ourselves." Modern senior housing is a world removed from the 'old-age homes' of yesteryears where the elderly went to stay because they were hairless and too sick to look after themselves, or unwanted by their children. Far from being a pejorative, it is a lifestyle statement, as is apparent from the mix of residents. Utsav, for instance, houses several retired officers from IAS, IPS and the armed forces, besides many doctors, engineers and teachers. "We come here to lead our lives to the fullest and do whatever we desired to do all along,'' stated some other Utsav resident, Professor Y P Khanna. Realising the expectations of their clients, the managements are adding recreational facilities, including hobby classes. "We have not retired from life but only from our all-consuming professional routines," said Amita Shaw, 63, who retired as director of Bal Bhavan, New Delhi and heads the dance and singing club at Utsav. "Here we use our experience to make our daily life more fulfilling." Sometimes, living in their peer group also approach new beginnings. For example, at a Pune property two citizens of their late 60s determined their soulmates in every other. Functional health services with doctors, nursing staff and ambulance are a common feature of seniors-only housing and most have tied up with nearby hospitals for cashless treatment of residents in emergencies. Some even have care homes for residents with Alzheimer's, dementia, Parkinson's, arthritis, osteoporosis, etc. Seniors-best housing—for people aged above fifty five—took off in India approximately 15 years in ago, and is developing rapid. There are about 3,600 occupied homes in 15-odd projects across the country, and more than 5,000 are being constructed in 20 new projects. While Pune's Paranjape Group, Bengaluru's Mantri Group and Ashiana Housing in Delhi-NCR are some of the established names, Max Group and Tata Housing have also launched projects in Dehradun and Bengaluru, respectively. Senior housing is typically evolved inside the suburbs to keep charges down. Although it is a part of a massive township, entry is constrained to the residents. Leasing is an option, however most clients buy. Price range from Rs 23 lakh for a one-bedroom unit to Rs 58 lakh for a 3-bedroom unit, in the NCR; Rs 25 lakh to Rs 59 lakh in Pune; Rs 39 lakh to Rs 90 lakh in Bengaluru; Rs 30 lakh to Rs 70 lakh in Chennai, and Rs 25 lakh to Rs 1.18 crore in Coimbatore. Now, Lavasa, too, is offering senior homes priced from Rs 45 lakh to Rs 1.45 crore. By Sanjay Bansal| Founder & CEO of |Affordable Homes India|
