Welcome to Ram Krishnahari Vruddhaashram

Old age homes have quite a negative impression in our society. For the elderly, the idea of shifting to an old age home away from their family is kind of a nightmare. However, not all old age homes bring you the comfort and security essential for an old age being but their are a few like Ram Krishnahari Vriddhashram that have emerged as an initiative of offering intense care and support for the elderly who are shelterless or abandoned by their families.

It is free service that is intended to provide a home for people above 60 years of age, irrespective of their gender. The motive is to support the elderly and provide them an environment where they can live light heartedly with people of their own age group. That's not all, as this volunteer service is not just restricted to providing a shelter to the elderly but also facilitate their living through medical assistance and providing for the necessities such as bed, bedsheets, healthy meals, cots and tea from time to time. Adding to the tranquility is the inbuilt temple where the seniors citizens can offer prayers and homage to their deity.

Though Born in rich family, at time of marriage her family condition was indigent so normally married to person who was also living in poverty. After marriage she completed her education upto 8th Standard and also completed her teacher training and was appointed in muncipal council primary school. Her son Ashok who did MMBS and daughter Alka who did DHMS,are well settled in life. She also did DHMS in 1976 and charity dispensary in Amravati. In 1979 along with others she eastablished NGO Aarogyva Vaibhav Mandir and done social work like eye camps and medical camps.

In 1989 she took voluntary retirement from service. In 1994 she started oldage home Ramkrishna Hari Vrushdhashram in Pandharpur. She even did not celebrate Diwali or Dashera for last 21 years with her own family. Her family was her oldage home. She died on 22/11/2015 in Pandharpur while in service of poor and inmates of old age Home on Day of KARTIK EKADASHI. What a Pious Soul.
