Maya CARE was conceived as a dream to assist senior citizens in activities that would offer them convenience, independence and happiness while continuing to live in their own homes. The dream is now a movement propelled by a growing network of volunteers across 10 Indian cities and supporters across the world. Primarily a care service for senior citizens, Maya CARE is also used by those with a mental or physical disability as well as families of professionals working away from home.
Services: Accompanying senior citizens to the doctor/social/cultural event/railway station/airport, sitting with them in hospital, outside the ICU, reading to them, writing letters/articles for them, computer-related work, sorting out documents, bank transactions, applying for a phone/gas connection, helping with house registration, making an affidavit, organizing a social gathering, delivering personalized greetings, shopping for medicines/groceries/gifts...
Maya CARE does NOT provide emergency/ayah/nursing/domestic help/full time services.
Maya CARE services are offered FREE of charge.
An individual/corporate/community could support Maya CARE by sponsoring visits to a senior citizen through its 'Visit-a-grandparent' initiative. In order to ensure transparency, supporters are sent the contact details and photograph of the senior citizen who benefitted from their kindness. Maya CARE has partnered with corporates to offers similar services to the families of their employees who are away from home on assignment.

Services paused in: Hyderabad, Bangalore, Nasik and Chennai
