Dignity Lifestyle Retirement Township, Neral
In response to the needs of senior citizens for an independent living facility, this township was conceived and implemented along with the developer Shri Anil Pandhe. With 62 cottages (now 70)and other common facilities, its activities came to be enshrined in a separate Public Trust under the name of Dignity Lifestyle. As a trailblazing concept, it has stood the test of time and has inspired the mushrooming commercial growth of similar senior living homes.
Dignity on Wheels
In collaboration with the Lions Club of Bombay Host, in honour of its 50th year celebration, a landmark project of Dignity Foundation found approval. In April, we launched ‘Dignity on Wheels’ as an outreach programme to poor senior citizens living in all corners of Mumbai. The programme was designed to reach those people who cannot come to the Foundation’s office to avail of services. Inspector General Shri Javed Ahmed flagged off the first trip of the Bus that visited all 24 wards of Mumbai in a week’s time. The bus served the same poor locality thrice a year.
