A1 Snehanjali Mumbai City's First Assisted Living Elder Care Home

A1 Snehanjali, Assisted Living Elder Care Home: “Transforming lives to mitigate loneliness, helplessness, and boredom”

 A1 Snehanjali”, an initiative started by Silver Innings  on 17th Aug 2013, is one of its kind first dedicated 24 x 7 assisted living facility in a care-home for seniors in Mumbai, who do not need constant medical intervention or nursing home care. The care-home is located at historic town of Nalasopara (West Rly), which is about 50 km from Mumbai in western suburbs. The well known coastal beaches like Kalamb, Rajodi, Arnala and Suruchi Wadi are within 2 to 4 kms radius. Historical Buddhist caves, Ancient Church, Agashi Jain Temple, Shani Dev Temple, Vasai Fort are other famous places to visit within the proximity of the care-home. It is accessible from Nalasopara, as well as from Vasai and Virar. Sanjeevani Hospital, Cardinal Gracious Hospital, Alliance and Riddhi Siddhi Hospital are within accessible distance for any medical emergency.
Silver Innings is an internationally acclaimed Social Enterprise working with Senior Citizens since 2008. Since then it has committed to ensure that ageing gracefully becomes positive and rewarding experience for all seniors.

At A1 Snehanjali our mission is to help elders and their family members to overcome the challenges of ageing and show them the way to transform lives to mitigate loneliness, helplessness and boredom and live with dignity in their silver years.

Our 'A1 Snehanjali' project offers our residents both personalized and group programs and services that focus on stimulating mind, body and soul. In our 24 x7 assisted living elder care homes, every person gets relationship-based individualized care. Our facilities are not typical old-age homes or nursing home. Instead, we implement the international, contemporary concept of person-centric care, an area where we are pioneers in Mumbai. Our management and staff know and respect each resident as an individual. We know their life stories, their strengths, concerns and challenges, needs, preferences, and expectations. We form meaningful relationships with the residents and their family members and provide elders, including elders with dementia, an environment where they can lead satisfying lives in spite of their constraints.

It is around three years now that we started our first unit of A1 Snehanhali - D’silva Nagar in Aug 2013. This is a fabulous five bedroom bungalow with a garden, a cozy home with a capacity to host ten seniors and is located at D’silva Nagar, Nalasopara West, on the outskirts of Mumbai. It is situated in middle of residential locality and is easily accessible. 

'A1 SNEHANJALI’, the assisted living project promoted by Silver Innings, is happy to announce opening a second assisted living unit at Rajodi Beach on 1st June, 2016. Through this, we continue to move forward towards our goal to transform lives of elders by providing person-centric care and eliminating loneliness, helplessness, and boredom. Our new unit will create more spaces where elders lead fulfilling lives based on their capacity and desires and continue to be an integral part of society.
It has been a journey full of love and learning, and we have obtained an even deeper appreciation of the great need for offering such places to families that need such facilities but have nowhere to go. Our new unit, just ten minutes away from our first unit, will increase our overall of A1 Snehanjali capacity to 22 residents.

Our second unit, A1 SNEHANJALI – Rajodi, is a lush green, spacious facility very close to the Rajodi beach. The ample space and enriching surrounding provides a relaxed residential space to elders where we will support them using individualized care based on their medical situations. In addition to long-term stay options, we will also have short-term stay ‘Respite’ for elders who need personal care while their family members need time away for work or respite. One guest room will be available for family members who need to stay near their elders for short durations, depending on availability.

Our nurturing and trained professional staff is dedicated to provide all residents with highest level of quality and expert services. Families subscribing to our service will be assured peace of mind; knowing that their loved one is enjoying his/her best days of “Silver Years” at A1 Snehanjali. A therapeutic and secure environment will be provided to the residents along with non-pharmacological interventions if required. 

A1 Snehanjali has created package of integrated amenities that is designed to provide seniors with most of the service required to lead a normal home-like life. It offers both personalized and group programs and services that focus on stimulating mind, body and soul.  We are offering a convenient month-to-month room rental that includes the following:
1.       Comfortable room including basic utilities
2.       Three VEG meals a day (As per nutritional requirement)
3.       Common dining facility (with option for room service if required )

Very informative post. I have one question in mind. The line, "Orthopedic mailing list & email list are updated every 60 days to ensure the highest accuracy level and then again tested before delivery of your Orthopedic mailing list & email list." 60 days is very late. The other email lists say the email lists are regularly and continuously updated. I find that in the competititor websites. Give a lesser figure at least.
