Why can't we have old age homes partly financed by Corporate Organizations?We see more and more elite old age home advertisements with even swimming pools and jogging tracks thrown in as added amenities for the rich to buy n enjoy the rest of their lives.
Fine enough. But what about those who cannot afford such high cost? Why can't very small towns that have some basic amenities be developed as venues for old age homes, where with the minimum costs, one can stay and live the rest of his or her life or even as couples?
Why can't the corporates step in and either rent out huge buildings in villages and refurbish them or build old age homes for the needy but continue to part finance them as part of their CSR activities? I guess we have a long way to go here and it is ridiculous for only the rich to enjoy such facilities.
As a nation, we lack social security for the old people. Why not invite Corporate participation for this vital aspect of housing the old people and caring for them?
