What are Independent Living Homes for Seniors?
These are gated Apartment complexes offering private residences designed for independent active seniors to enjoy a lifestyle filled with recreational and social activities amongst other special features.
Why Independent Senior Living Homes?
India has the youngest population in the world today and 30 years from now, the elderly population in India is expected to triple from 100 million to 300 million in 2050, accounting for 18% of the total population in 2050. To understand this in perspective, while the current population of elderly in India (134mn in 2020 is fast reaching the current size of population of Mexico (130mn) or Russia (143mn), the 2050 population of elderly will be close to the population of the United States (326m - 2018) today.
One of the biggest issues with senior living home concept in India has been the social stigma, real or perceived. However that seems to be changing slowly as the number of nuclear families have increased in the last 20 years and elders no longer have the support and care they would get in a joint family system.
Educated enlightened families, some of whose children are away in foreign countries or in other Indian cities, see life after 60 as necessitating separate living arrangements where the tedium of managing the house can be avoided. To live among like-minded support groups, meeting them every day instead of being cooped up in apartments in high rises in the city is yet another type of need.
Crimes against the elderly are also a big factor. According to a Helpage India report on Elder Abuse and Crime in India (2011), crimes against the elderly were reported the most in Delhi, followed by Patna and Mumbai. Staying in a gated Senior Living community comes with 24 hour security which is a solution that many children living away from their parents would prefer for their peace of mind.
