“Nest” – Senior Citizen Home

A place everyone long to be.

A home for living a purposeful life, surrounded by friends & people who Care, Support and Respect, till death arrives.

 

Reality of Life

Old age is a natural part of life that should be readily accepted, attended to, and integrated with the many other elements that ultimately construct and define our lives.

 

Driving thoughts: NEST

Life is like a river, flows with time not knowing when and where it would end.  Life walks holding the hand of ‘ageing’, an unavoidable and universal process of human life, while eroding its energy at every step, until branded as ‘older generation’.

If lived for a long time life enters the era of ‘disability’ becomes burden to the family, friends and society – at youth who was valued highly, becomes worthless at old age.

 

Nest: Demand of today

In Bangladesh, there are many elderly parents left behind by their children who went abroad for better life.

In a few case parents are looked-after by nurses. 

When death news reaches them, some could make to the burials.
