Old Age Homes

Maharshi Karve Stree Shikshan Samstha, (MKSSS), Pune has established an old age home for rendering all the required facilities for senior citizens in the year 1933. We at MKSSS, have three different buildings for the old age home. Two buildings are meant for the old women and one building is for the couples. Anandashram and Sukhanivas, where old women stay had been established in the year 1965 and 1983 respectively. Kalpataru is for the couples which had been established in the year 1981.

Need of Old Age Homes:
MKSSS has observed the need of the time and established an old age home, though is not our main service. Earlier, the necessity of the old age homes was not felt since the joint family system was followed. That system was broken once people shifted from villages (the land agriculture based job) to cities (income generation). The change of values and the social set up were the reasons that encourage the growth of old age homes. Thus it became a social necessity and a better option.

Now if all the members of a family stay in the same place, in a village, there are no jobs. Even if there are, an educated person prefers to work in a firm or such other institution related to his area of specialization. We cannot expect a comfortable job at our door front. So, naturally, everyone is in search of such places and are forced to stay out of their native place. The main reason for the coming up of so many old age homes now a days is because most children are staying out side of their state or country. As the sons have to stay at their work place, they are not able to stay with their parents at their home. In many cases parents also don’t want to go out of their native place.

Facilities:
At present 58 old women and 4 couples are staying in our old age home. MKSSS takes care of all these senior citizens at a very nominal rate. We provide excellent infrastructure, nutritious and well-balanced meals, 24 hours medical facility, doctors on call. We also provide access to telephones and other forms of communication as they may keep in touch with their loved ones.

Events and Celebrations:
Apart from food, shelter and medical amenities, we also arrange some traditional and cultural programs and social events for their entertainment. These homes also create a family like atmosphere among the senior citizens. They experience a sense of security and friendship when they share their joys and sorrows with each other.

    Some people, especially those running on busy daily schedules tend to use the pills to help maintain weight since they can not afford to follow all the diet programs. This is not advised. It is recommended that one seek advice from a professional in this field before using the pills. This can save one from many dangers associated with the misuse.

    The diet pills should always be taken whole. Some people tend to divide the pills to serve a longer period of time. This is not advised and can lead to ineffectiveness. If it is required that one takes a complete tablet, it means that a certain amount of the ingredients are required to achieve the desired goal. It is also recommended that one does not crush the pill and dissolve it in beverages. Chemicals found in beverages have the potential of neutralizing the desired nutrients in the pill thereby leading to ineffectiveness. The best way to take the tablets is swallowing them whole with a glass of water.

    The diet pills speed up the metabolic processes. This is the key factor that leads to the burning of all the fats in the body. This means that one passes out lots of urine, which subsequently leads to dehydration. It is imperative that the user take lots of water round the clock. This will help curb dehydration, which can lead to health problems. In addition to that, water offers the required medium for the function of the nutrients and elimination of the fats.

    When buying the review of diet pills, it is imperative that one gets the most recommended dose. People tend to compromise the quality and effectiveness of the tablets due to the variation in cost. The low priced pills depict poor quality, which means their effectiveness is not reliable. Some have also been found to cause health problems. The dose should also be taken as recommended. Over dose will not speed up the process but rather lead to complication. This will increase risk of side effects. If the taking of the pill is forgotten, do not take more to compensate for the lost time.

    The diet plan enclosed with the diet pills has also to be followed. According to the requirements, the termination of the diet must be done even with no results. This means your body is irresponsive.
