Now the visitors and family members at the Matoshree Vruddhashram, an old-age home in Khadavli, Bhiwandi taluk, can have a comfortable stay at the Rotary Rehabilitation and Counselling Centre, thanks to RC Mumbai Ghatkopar, D 3141, which has recently inaugurated this new facility there at a cost of ₹ 14.5 lakh.
The centre consists of four fully-furnished rooms on the first floor of the building. “Relatives of the elderly people living at the old-age home can spend time together for a few days. This will give seniors the joy of staying with their own kith and kin. Earlier, the inmates were living in dormitory and there was no place where visitors can sit and talk or stay,” says the Club President Sudha Navandar.
A counsellor has been appointed to advice the visitors and elders staying at the home “in an effort to resolve their differences and motivate the families to reunite,” says Suneel M Puranik, a club member.
