LAUNCHING OF MEALS ON WHEELS FOR ELDERS
By Chennai Geriatric Catering Service
With the increase in the population of the aged, diseases and disabilities faced by them are also on the rise. Their movements are restricted due to stroke, Parkinson’s disease, arthritis, poor vision, etc., So they are not able to engage themselves in regular exercise like walking to maintain their health.
To improve their health conditions, nutritious diet is very important. Many elders are in apartments and live all alone. Due to disabilities, they are unable to prepare food for themselves. Getting the services of a reliable cook is all the more difficult as frequent absence is rather a routine for them. So it is not certain that elders will get their food daily.
To overcome all these problems/difficulties Chennai Geriatric Catering service, the brain child of Padmashri Dr.V.S.Natarajan, has been inaugurated on 03-10-2014 at Anna Nagar, Chennai
Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner will be served at the doorsteps of elders. Cleanliness and hygiene in preparations of food will be strictly observed. It is ran purely on “No Profit bases
Due to unavoidable circumstances the above service is not in operation.
