APSCCON Meeting of Managers of Old Age Homes

APSCCON Meeting of Managers of Old Age Homes -- 21st May 2012

APSCCON called for a meeting of Managers and owners of Old Age Homes
in Twin Cities. Nearly thirty people participated. Prof V
Visweswaraiah explained the problems of residents of old age homes
like: Not having Ration Card; Not having Aarogyasri health facility;
not being even a voter! These problems were taken up with SHRC in AP
and SHRC has recently ordered that state government officials must
visit the old age homes and verify who are eligible for the above
facilities and give on the spot relevant cards or documents. The
purpose of the meeting was to inform Old Age Homes about this SHRC
decision and urge OAHs to follow up with the state govt to do the
needful from their side.It was resolved that APSCCON would follow it
up with the state government departments concerned.

Many owners of Old Age Homes narrated their problems. Sri Nageswara
Rao requested the old age homes to be affiliated with APSCCON by
paying a one time fee of Rs 500. Thereafter APSCCON will take up their
problems with concerned authorities. Almost all Elder Care Homes
agreed to affiliate themselves immediately with APSCCON.

Sri Rajesh mentioned that apart from HelpAge there are many other
funding agencies exclusively interested in OAHs.
