Help us help the helpless elderly

In the evening of
their lives, abandoned
by their near and dear ones...

Help us help them.
(there are 35 helpless, abandoned elders at Omashram)

Help us help the helpless elderly.

Omashram Trust is a charitable trust founded in the year 2001 with the objective of providing care and succor to the old. At Omashram Old Age Home we have 35 old, abandoned souls being cared for.

The trust is now into the ninth year of its existence. The past eight years have been years of struggle and considerable odds to keep this fledgling institution afloat. We have been able to continue to do this good work through the benevolence extended by kind-hearted, altruistic individuals and corporate donors alike.

Omashram provides residential care with full boarding & lodging facility to the old with medical care nursing care to the old belonging mostly to poor & middle class individuals (above 60 years of age) of all denominations

At present the facility is housed in three separate rented premises all located nearby in the Vijaya Bank colony, Bilekahalli, Bannerghatta Road, Bangalore South. At present there are 35 residents. Unfortunately, this is the maximum capacity of the facility without cramming.

It takes Rs. 5,000/- per month for us to ensure good health and food for one elderly individual in our Ashram. We invite all individuals who feel strongly for our cause to come forward and extend their support by donating in cash or kind or by sponsoring one resident of the Ashram.

Not all old age homes are the same. Last week, I have read about home help for the elderly chichester. These Chichester based centers are renowned across the globe for offering a safe and secured environment to elders filled with love and affection. At these centers, the individuality and independence of elders are respected and even supported.
