    Majority of the Senior Citizens are confined to Homes which are either on FREE or on PAYMENT basis. Inspite of having need based facilities, they are mostly away from their children and depressed . This is on one side of the coin. On the other side, Mentally Challenged PeopleĀ are the most vulnerable and isolated from the mainstream & community development. They need services and supports on life cycle basis. In spite of getting services and supports from Government andĀ NGO, this group’s parents are more worried and expect matching solution for the concern that “what will happen to the child after us?”. In view of this, Parents expect life care centers so that their children get life care with protection and security when they are old or no more. To take care of both the groups, composite HOME has been conceptualized and developed as a Model and presented at various forums. This has got acceptance and its implementation is under process. Also developed into a paper and submitted for publication. More will be added in due course of time.
