About the organization

The good news is that increasing life expectancy, lower mortality, and an overall enhanced standard of living have contributed to people living longer lives. The bad news is that India, as a developing country, offers very little social security to senior citizens. Dignity Foundation is a not-for-profit organization that has worked for senior citizens since 1995. We offer an enriching set of opportunities to the elderly for leading a more dignified, secure, joyful, and fulfilling life.

Our vision is to change the way people look at Aging in India. Our mission is to enable senior citizens to live life with dignity and security and enjoy life in a fulfilled and fun-filled manner.

We deal with the psycho-social challenges of senior citizens in India irrespective of their caste, creed, and economic strata. We help them tackle their loneliness and insecurities related to emotions, finance, health, and safety; bringing joy back into their lives. Headquartered in Mumbai, we have Chapters in five other cities - Bengaluru, Chennai, Delhi-NCR, Kolkata, and Pune.

Special features of the organization

Dignity Foundation is one of the first non-profit organizations in India to pioneer eldercare. For 26 years, we have developed various focused and targeted programs with the aim of enabling senior citizens to achieve and enjoy productive aging.

  • Dignity Foundation (DF) was the first to establish a dedicated senior citizen helpline, which is operational to date. Our USP is that this is a toll-free, Pan-India helpline number that is available 24X7. Our senior citizen helpline number is 1800 267 8780.
  • DF operates unique daycare centers in Bengaluru, Chennai, and Mumbai where poor senior citizens receive mid-day meals, nutritional drinks, and access to knowledge & skill-building sessions, arts & craft sessions, games, and fun activities, etc. 
  • DF also operates loneliness mitigation centers in Mumbai and Pune which engage poor senior citizens for shorter durations each day. These centers are located within slum communities to enable the seniors to attend the sessions despite their physical limitations.
  • DF prides itself on being one of the few non-profit players in the space of dementia care for senior citizens. We operate two Dementia Day Care Centers, each in Chennai and Mumbai. In FY 2022-23, we will launch two new centers - in Pune and Delhi NCR. 
  • We operate a one-of-its-kind Mobile Physiotherapy Clinic in Thane district, Maharashtra. We provide advanced and quality care to prevent, treat and cure aches, pains, and postural disorders which are very common among the elderly. This van serves senior citizens at their doorstep in semi-rural and tribal communities.
  • We distribute monthly dry ration and sanitation kits to senior citizens with meager family incomes to ensure that they receive adequate nutrition and at least two full meals a day. This program is implemented in Mumbai, Pune, Delhi NCR, Bengaluru, Chennai, and Kolkata.
  • We also run flagship programs such as Chai Masti Centers and a monthly magazine for senior citizens called 'Dignity Dialogue'. 
 

Why should a corporate partner with organization?

Dignity Foundation has a history of delivering its promise of improving the quality of life of the elderly in India. Dignity Foundation has a range of various services, all catered towards senior citizens, so corporates can choose the program of their interest and partner with us to amplify our impact. We welcome partnerships not only for our existing centers, but also to open up new centers if the corporates' geography aligns with our growth strategy. Our passionate and dedicated team ensures that results are delivered and reports are regularly shared with the corporate partners so that they too feel engaged with the program and impact created on-ground.
