JSS Old age homes
JSS Suttur Home for the Old Age:
Introduction: The fading joint family system in India and other innumerable factors have given rise to the need of old age homes in our country.
A rising trend is being noticed among the urban senior population who are neglected and often unwanted by their families. Many desire to move out of their homes and into home especially catering to their needs, in order to spend their later years in comfort.
A good number of elderly persons have sufficient income for their living but no relatives to take care of them in their old age and sickness. Another good number of old people have no income, no relatives to support and are living in a miserable state, being old and sick, mostly bedridden they are in good need of food, shelter, medical aid, loving care, emotional support and respect. These two groups of elderly are liable to get, serious psychological depression.
Keeping all this in mind and decided to address this need by establishing a home for the old age to provide shelter, with love, affection, reverence and comforts to the seniors citizens and established Old Age Homes so that these people live happily and peacefully in the eves of their lives.
For many older people who don't have a roof over their heads or a place to call their own and who have nowhere to go and no one to support them. The men and women who have passed their prime years of life are provided shelter and a constructive life at many old age homes set up around the state of Karnataka.
Sri Mutt with an aim to help the elders of the society has set up a home for the old at Suttur. It provides senior & old citizen well-formulated, need-based and innovative eldercare projects and programs.
The old age homes provide a safe haven and create a family like atmosphere among the residents. Senior citizens experience a sense of security and friendship when they share their joys and sorrows with each other.
The Vruddahashrama was inaugurated by His Holiness Jagadguru Sri Shivarathri Deshikendra Mahaswamiji on 11th August 2000 with the aim of not only providing home for homeless but to look after the aged people who needed shelter with love, affection, reverence and comforts.
This institution today shelters destitute men and women and Old people who have been orphaned due to many reasons and circumstances.
The prime concern of this institution is to serve the senior citizens who are neglected by their children and other members of the family and those who are economically poor and backward.
