In the traditional pioneering role that we have been taking all along to address issues concerning the people, the society initiated a shelter for the old and lend love and dignity to their residual life. SIES Seniors Home for the Aged is an expression of this commitment. A plot of land admeasuring 2850 sq. meters situated at Nerul, Navi Mumbai was developed into 52 studio apartments, along with a meditation centre, prayer hall, dispensary, temple and a recreation centre. The Seniors Home primarily looks after retired teachers of the country and others who have contributed to the cause of education.
I am indebted to my father for living but to my teacher for living well

The dawn of liberalization has set in an accelerated pace of commercialization and
consumerism. In the wake of economic gains, traditions and values have been
consigned to bins. The collapse of the joint family system accentuated by a severe
shortage of housing stock has stuck a deadly emotional blow on the elders in the sunset of their lives. Geriatry has its attendant difficulties. Loneliness and helplessness of the old has cast a stigma on the society itself.
SIES has been expanding the canvas of its activities and the sweep of its influence to cover important social causes and societal obligations. The Seniors Home is an expression of that intent.
The Home comprises of 36 studio apartments, bath attached, designed and furnished to provide comfort to seniors, privacy as well as access to facilities. The cost sharing structure recognizes 1/3rd of the inmates making no payment (restricted to retired teachers), 1/3rd paying running expenses (teachers earning pension) and l/3rd would pay a share of the capital cost as well as proportionate monthly running expenses. An updated library in the Home, Medical Centre and Meditation Hall are added attractions. The Adi Sankara temple inside the Home is a heavenly abode and ministers to the spiritual needs of the inmates.
