India Gets Its First Modern, Old-Age Retirement Home

Bringing modern retirement to India, Dream and Beauty Charitable Trust (DBCT), has established home for senior citizens referred to as Heavenly Palace, the first-ever modern, old-age retirement home in India. Located at Doraha, Punjab, this senior citizen home actively transforms the perception of old-age homes in the country.

“People in India usually consider old-age homes as a place of despair, grief and melancholy. Heavenly Palace is a social venture aimed at progressive and happy living for senior citizens enabling them to live longer in sound health.”
According to Dream and Beauty Charitable Trust, this retirement home embodies ultra-modern facilities like an amphi theatre, auditorium, library and entertainment area for the residents. The 14 acre campus is designed to provide senior citizens with luxurious facilities and qualified medical assistance at all times.

“Indian parents save for their children even when they are above 60 years of age. At Heavenly Palace, we encourage senior citizens to spend small part of their savings / income on themselves and enjoy luxury living, a bonus they are entitled to.”

In the past decade, old age homes in India have evolved in terms of facilities and outlook.
The management at Heavenly Palace encourages group of retired friends to relocate together. According to them, community assisted living homes for the elderly allow a happier retirement.

This modern retirement home is also recommended for stay of a group of senior citizens of Punjab, Gujarat, Bengal, Kannada, and Tamil origin to relocate as a community and live life amongst friends. Non-resident Indian or NRI senior citizens shall find this old age home in India, a safe haven to relocate and feel at home away from home. Sufficient numbers of rooms have been reserved for temporary stay of relatives of residents and shall be provided four star living.  If Japanese can hire localities in Philippines and other countries for stay of their senior citizens, Heavenly Palace provides similar if not better facilities.

“Old age homes or retirement homes in India have been seen as a social stigma so far. With Heavenly Palace, we are bringing the ‘Happy Retirement’ ideology to India. We need this change in the Indian mindset, because children become independent but parents still need company in their older years which will be provided Heavenly Palace by fellow residents.”

This retirement home has received a decent response in the first few months. It is being considered ideal for community living by the locals.
