RAHAT (RELIEF) - A COUNSELING CENTER FOR ELDERLY

The challenge of caring for a growing number of elderly is yet to be faced squarely. As people grow older, especially in developing countries like India, they encounter several problems. Some are physical and age-related. Some are due to the social structure; break up of the joint family system, poverty, loss of employment, widowhood.

Some emotional problems like loss of self-esteem, lowered life satisfaction, dependence, and depression, feeling of being ignored by family members. All sorts of abuses such as maltreatment and physical, vocally, and mental torture, etc.

Some problems are cognitive - the onset of dementia and mental deterioration. Medicines or the medical profession alone cannot provide solutions to all these problems. Nor do we have adequate professionals-physical or mental health professionals who can attend to the needs of the elderly, especially of those requiring institutionalization or long-term care within a family or those who have disabilities.

Even those elderly who are not 'sick' or disabled do need help and guidance to live their life with dignity, with autonomy, and in a disease-free style. Hence it is necessary to build up a network of support systems or care systems so that family and community together can create an age-friendly atmosphere so that senior citizens can live and die with dignity.

Keeping in view the association thought to provide counseling to such needy senior citizens or their family members online.

We have a group of experts who are ready to provide help to such people the service they need free of cost on humanitarian grounds.
