St. Mother Teresa focused her personal attention on the well-being of the old people who have been abandoned by their children. She has bestowed her time and energy to bring about transformation in their life through personal care. Her service to the aged has been the main source of inspiration for our Foundation to run “The Mother Teresa Joy Home” for senior citizens both men and women who need love, care and support in their advanced age.
There are care homes for the elite. Whereas there are a number of poor people who are homeless, having no proper support from their families and cannot afford to stay in paid homes. Hence the motto of this home is to provide solace to these insecure, ignored, uncared aged people with love and care as shown by St. Mother Teresa. We provide all the basic needs including food, shelter and medical aid. It is targeted to shelter those neglected by their children, widows/widowers, divorcees, people with no legal heirs and parents of children who are working in far off places. The occupants are fully taken care by our dedicated team as if they are our own parents. Seniors of both sexes who are above 60 are accommodated in this home.
Built in an area of one acre with a constructed area of around 25000 sq.ft. The construction is of international standard with provisions for dormitories in the ground floor and individual rooms in the first floor. Those who are totally abandoned having no source of income will be provided free accommodation in the home in the dormitory. The rooms on the first floor are available as single and double occupancy. These rooms are charged at nominal prices. The Foundation
makes no profit on the same.
In this home apart from normal accommodation, we provide additional amenities such as a yoga and meditation hall, recreation hall, library and dispensary for emergent medical needs. The home is surrounded by a sprawling open area with greenery for fresh air and a conducive atmosphere. We provide care with love expected from their children. We make sure loneliness, which normally torments them is not felt. Our goal is to make them feel at home and live with honor and dignity shedding all the inhibitions through our dedicated service.
