Reaching an age of sixty, in a country like ours, is not very comfortable. By this time, one has traversed a million phases, borne the brunt of ages and has arrived at a position where one feels aloof and isolated. Social gatherings seem to be farce and health concerns suddenly take on the prime position. It appears as if everything around is nothing but a riddle that is difficult to solve. At this stage it becomes very important to take each day as a challenge and relive each moment with simplicity and dignity.
This is precisely what the facilities compiled at www.oldagesolutions.org provide- self satisfaction, enthusiasm and a renewed vigor. These schemes and facilities have been further classified into the following sectors-
PROGRAMME FOR OLDER PERSONS(NISD)
NATIONAL SOCIAL ASSISTANCE PROGRAMME (NSAP)
FREE LEGAL AIDS
F. HEALTH FACILITIES (HAI)
Numerous concessions, incentives and facilities are today being granted to the aged to make them more independent. It is solely by means of their independence that they can gear themselves up to face the novel challenges and situations which might encounter them.
Strengthening the old is strengthening the nation indeed.
