Home for the Aged — Shanthi Bhavan

There are two categories of people who are at the Home for the age in India. First, ones who were abandoned by their families. Second, ones who had left their families on their own, fed up with the humiliation and ill-treatment from their family members.Pic 1 We in EC Group visit such elderly people in a Home for the aged called Shanthi Bhavan once in a year. We sing action songs, conduct games, give gifts to each and everyone and have lunch with them. Old age is also called the second childhood, and it is a time when they need love and care of their near and dear ones. We find that really what these people want most is someone to share their stories with. It’s often hard to leave at the end of the day, because it is so interesting to spend time with these people.
