Your support can turn a life
In a major step to cater to the needs of the elderly, the Rotary Club of Bombay Pier and Dignity Foundation together set up the Senior Citizens Counselling Centre in the Dignity Foundation premises in BMC School Building, Topiwala Lane, opposite Lamington Road Police Station in Mumbai.
The then Chief Minister, Shri. Vilasrao Deshmukh, inaugurated the Centre on Wednesday, 30th May, 2003.
The Centre works Monday to Friday. Experts in various fields are available for free consultation. They will each be available on time slots on prescribed days on an appointment basis. Please call for appointments
Similarly in all the cities where Dignity presence is found, Counselling services are on the forefront.
The subjects on which the elderly can seek free guidance include:
- Finance (Taxation, investment, investor complaints, Credit cards etc.)
- Legal (Property, will, divorce, harassment, fraud etc.)
- Insurance (Life, General and Medical)
- Medical (General health, arthritis, blood pressure, eye, diabetes etc.)
- Psychological counselling

It is certain that this Centre will fill a huge gap in the life of the elderly who have to go from place to place and travel distances to deal with problems which affect their daily lives. In this One Stop they will get all the referral services and information under one roof.
