This community launches voluntary help services for its senior residents

The R K Nagar community in R A Puram has set up a Help Group for its seniors: to come to their aid in emergencies and when they have special needs like dealing with Apps.

A group of residents keen to offer their services has shared the list of names, contact phone numbers and services they can render voluntarily.

K L Balasubramaniam of R K Nagara association says that though the body has not made a record of all seniors living in this area, he assumed that there could be over 60 people.

These are the support services – Medical emergency. Grocery/banking support, Technology assistance, Maid/home-maid arrangement. Safety issues. Mobility support.

“People often seek medical aid and guidance to use cellphone services,” says Balasubramaniam.

Bala, Vasanth, Vasanth Murugan, Jaisimha, Ranga, Revathy R., Sundar and Prabhakar – these are the volunteers who will take calls. The service is free and available 24×7.
