Your support can turn a life
Dignity Lifestyle is on a 25 acre project of Dignity Lifestyle Trust for active and productive living for the senior citizens. Funny, isn’t it? You’ve worked hard all your life, hoping that someday you could put your feet up on a sunny porch and do nothing more than read a book.
But when that day does arrive, you start missing the frenetic pace - feeling left out and without purpose. Suddenly, you don’t want to slow down. You wish you could turn back the clock, and start rushing again.
However prepared you think you are for retirement, the reality is very different, and the emptiness looms large. That period of your life that you yearned for all your working years, does not seem to hold the same appeal anymore. You begin to feel this is beginning of old age, and it’s downhill from here.
Don’t despair. You’re not the only one who feels this way. It’s how most people nearing retirement feel. At Dignity, we’ve spent a decade working with senior citizens to understand how exactly they feel. And it’s only helped us serve them better.
Dignity Lifestyle looks at retirement from a whole new perspective. Not as the onset of old age where you settle comfortably into a rocking chair, but rather, the beginning of an ‘active’ new lifestyle where you can deploy your skills to serve society, and feel gainfully employed once again. You could, for instance, manage one of our village development projects, or assist in running the township.
Your loved ones may look after you and tend to your physical needs, but can they cope with your emotional and psychological needs? At Dignity Lifesyle, our Social Workers are specially trained in Geriatric and Gerontological Care, so they understand you better.
Each resident’s progress is closely monitored, and assessed periodically to see how he or she is doing. A specific programme is designed for each resident, based on physical and cognitive skills, and aptitude.
And for those wanting to vent their pent-up emotions and worries, our in-house psychologists will conduct group therapy sessions, while our 100-bed Geriatric Care Hospital will provide lifetime medical assistance and care to those who need it.
