Independent Living communities are ‘serviced’ senior homes/ housing communities designed for independent elders that desire the conveniences of community living.
It offers senior-friendly rooms/housing units & a lifestyle filled with recreational and social opportunities without compromising privacy & independence.
Why should one choose?
We encourage seniors to stay in their own home till they can.
Some medical care could always be provided by NEMA’s Homecare assistants, nurses, etc.
There has to be a strong reason for the senior to shift to our care. Few of them could be
Loneliness: One may be single, having lost his/her spouse. Loneliness is a major cause of mental illness such as depression and can often lead to dementia. Families are nuclear. Even staying with once children, an elder may be very lonely looking for solace. Often ‘Time’ is a commodity most in demand that children cannot offer to their parents.
One is never alone in our elder homes/ communities.
Accompanying a Spouse in Assisted living: If a spouse needs assisted living that may be difficult to be provided at home for health reasons, He/she will need to shift to our home. Typically, another spouse accompanies.
The pleasure of Community living: NEMA has a thriving community life within its homes. One dine-in, plays games, participates in various activities, visit temples/ malls/ gardens, discusses politics, celebrates functions, together in the company of fellow residents.
Settling afresh after retirement: An elder couple may wish to settle with us if their children are abroad or out of the city. Staying in our serviced homes (CCRH) gives them hassle-free life and assurance of continued care, be it personal or medical.
Care levels can always be increased/ decreased as per need.
Lack of House-help:care Aides (maids/servants) help in tasks such as housekeeping (washing dishes, cleaning the home, doing laundry, making beds, and so on) and preparing meals. Rarely they may also provide personal care such as bathing, dressing, etc. for the individual.
As India’s economy develops and prosperity reaching the small towns & villages, it is getting quite difficult to arrange house-help. Often the support of Agencies/ Bureaus is taken for bringing-in a house-help on a year contract. Often, they are ill-trained and need to be constantly supervised by the resident himself/herself.
The safety and security of residents remain an issue to deal with.
The resident finds it very difficult to cope, even if house help is missing even for a day. It may be due to sickness, leave, or just quitting.
Over time, this will be even more challenging. Care homes do not face such issues. Safety is assured by multiple systems. Just staying together in a community provides huge assurance. Homes are managed professionally with huge staff with allowance for sickness or leave of support staff.
House management: Burden of managing a house at the ripe age of 60+ may be a huge challenge itself. One needs to manage water, electricity, gas, TV, phone, Wi-Fi connections & bills, grocery purchase & stock management, house-help/s, healthcare & medications, housekeeping & laundry, etc. There is always a risk of a service disruption for a multitude of reasons.
The culturally rich Indian community has always been very supportive of its elders. Neighborhood children & ladies may volunteer to help the elderly. NEPL recognizes and is working towards the encouragement of the cause formally through its ‘volunteer as a companion’ program.
However, It may be quite a relief for the elders to shift to our homes/ communities to unburden themselves and enjoy life in their golden years. Not only, there is a huge assurance of all services in these homes, but need-based medical services are also available in-house.
Independent living is more about making your life easier than giving up your privacy & independence, an acknowledgment of limitations. It may give you more freedom and flexibility in the long run.
NEMA offers the option of Independent living in two formats, one by leasing a room in our Elderhome and others by purchasing a unit in our Retirement Housing. One needs to choose a room/unit type most suitable for him/her based on size, features, direction & view, quality, finances, and other personal preferences. Payment for the same is separate from service charges.
Each home/ community comes with a certain basic services that one must pay for. However, care ratio, and health services need to be selected as doctors advise an individual's condition. Payment varies dependent on selection.
Our Happy Residents
I am 63 years old and retired government employee. When my kids moved abroad, my wife and I were left alone at our home. With kids living abroad and not much help around, we had to do all chores on their own. That was the time I started looking for Independent Senior Living in India homes and I came across NEMA elder care. I was really impressed by their senior living communities in India programs and got me and my wife registered. The senior independent living in India program also provides medical assistance and care. Senior living in India was a new concept for me and we were hesitant to go for it earlier. The independent senior living in India is now a professional system in place to take care of many like us. NEMA elder care gives you the benefits of social opportunities without compromising with privacy which makes it one of the best senior independent living in India.

I did not know much about the senior living in India until a few years ago, when i lost my grandmother. After losing my grandma, my grandfather became very lonely. He used to live in a different city and had to look after the house by himself. So we started looking for independent senior living in India programs for him and came across NEMA elder care. After going through their senior living communities in India services we approached them. And its been a year since my grandfather was registered to their independent senior living in India program. Their services have been very satisfactory with housing communities designed for senior living communities in India with the conveniences of community living. To anyone looking for senior living in India facilties I would suggest NEMA elder care.
