Mahalakshmi Home for seniors (Assisted Living)

This is to inform the AV community about the “Mahalakshmi Senior Home” (assisted living), a project to be undertaken and managed by the AV Health Services (AVHS). The building is situated between Arka and Mahalakshmi Park with access to the Crown road and could give home for 8 Aurovilian seniors permanently and 2 seniors temporarily. AVHS has been organising home-care for seniors for the last years. Since the number of Aurovilian seniors are more and more increasing every year, so we are in need of such care, to concentrate the seniors in a collective environment, which will make care giving considerably more economical and more effective.

The building has started after Dr. Karan Singh (Chairman of the Governing Board) and Sir William Mark Tully (International Advisory Council) laid the Foundation Stone on the 15th of August 2016. The Hindu Newspaper had already published this event the next day.

Now after more than one year of building construction time, we need further help from the community.

Any donation transferred to the PT account 0727 (Mahalakshmi Home) are helpful and most welcome.

Thank you, Manfred (Project Coordinator)
