SHEOWS Old Age Home aims to address the issue of elder abuse and works towards it by providing a home to the gray-haired souls who have been abandoned and have lost the hope to live. Our mission is “To serve the destitute/abandoned/abused old aged by attending to their needs, wounds and agony at the dusk of their life. We also aim and that no elderly should die on the roadside.”

SHEOWS since the last 16 years have been rescuing these elders from the streets of Delhi. They are given primary medical treatment and are provided with free accommodation, clean clothes, nutritious meals, 24×7 caregivers, doctors and nurses, medical facilities including Special Care Unit, Pathology Lab and Physiotherapy Unit.

As per census reports there has been tremendous growth in the Age group 60-plus population, it amounted to 10.4 crore in 2011 and will continue to rise steadily to nearly double from 8.6% in 2011 to 16% by 2041. India has 112 million elderly people with multiple physical, social psychological, and economic problems with unmet needs in all domains of health

3.7 million suffer dementia
40 million suffer from poor vision
1.6 million annual stroke cases
1 in 3 suffer from arthritis
1 in 3 has hypertension
1 in 5 has diabetes
1 in 4 suffer from depression
1 in 10 falls and sustains a fracture

Since at present problems related to old age like paralysis, disability, abandonment etc are on an all-time high we constantly require funds to sustain and maintain the quality of services provided to the residents for which we need support from the people who understand and resonate with our cause. We are proud to say that we provide the best healthcare service to these elderlies and would need your support to continue doing the same.
