Disability Care

PsWD Care

Team CovaiCare has developed an unique model wherein Senior Citizens with Persons with Disabilities (PsWD) can live in select Covai Senior Care Centres with their Special Child (who may be an adult) in their premises and after their time, they will be taken care of by CovaiCare.

  • A certain percentage of CovaiCare inventory is reserved for such Senior Citizens
  • The eligibility criteria is screened by a team of Doctors, Social Organizations dealing with Special Children (NGO’s)
  • The Senior Citizens invest in a dwelling and stay with the PsWD
  • We have an Activity Centre for the PsWD and those who can pursue any vocation inside or outside the Senior Care Centre are encouraged to do the work that they like
  • At the apex level we have CovaiCare trust which is a public trust. At the respective Senior Care Centres we have the Community Trust. The Trustees include four of the parents of PsWD, a senior executive from CovaiCare, one senior citizen from the community and one more who will be selected based on the composition of the PsWD
  • After the demise of the parents, the property is sold at Market Rate by CovaiCare Trust and, the money is parked in the Beneficiary Trust of the respective PsWD
  • The PsWD is moved to a hostel, which will be made available on payment of a refundable deposit by CovaiCare Trust
  • During the lifetime of the parents, the PsWD is slowly made to live in his allotted room in the hostel
  • The PsWD is taken care of by the Care Givers and the Trustees throughout their life
  • The functioning of the Community Trust is subject to Third Party Audit and the local Guardian or Trustee of each of the PsWD, whom the parents have to nominate as per law, can also visit them and give their feedback, which will be recorded
  • Only the interest from the sale of the dwelling will be used for the expenses of the PsWD including care, catering, hospital expenses etc and record of all expenses will be kept and audited
  • It is mandatory for all PsWD to have Medical Insurance Policy as far as possible
  • Should the PWD require additional money to meet his or her hospital expenses the same will be given as donation by CovaiCare Trust. Under no circumstances the principal amount will be touched since the interest from that principal will be required for taking care of the PWD until his or her lifetime
  • On the demise of the PsWD, the Trust will return the principal and balance of interest earned to the nominee. The parents of the PsWD may wish to donate some amount to the CovaiCare Trust as gratis. However, there is no compulsion

    The stay in Covai S3 Senior Care Centre was most comfortable. The team at Covai S3 provided excellent service. All of them were very courteous, friendly and caring. Food was excellent. Giving me positive thoughts.
  • Brigadier Suryanarayanan (Pressalit Care Bathroom User)

    I must thank Colonel Sridharan for sparing the services of the Covai team. Extremely devoted and sincere. Shows how much you care for them. Team Covai treated the job as if it was their own flat, checking of the progress almost daily besides dozens of calls to me! Also to mention, everyone worked with a smile and 100% efficiency.
  • Mr.Umanath (Resident)

    Team CovaiCare have a tough challenge ahead at Covai Chinmayam. How are you going to match the quality of food and the service with a smile we get at the "Retreat" in Covai S3 Senior Care Centre?! We just got back from lunch; I must say, every item in the menu this afternoon was simply superb; you don't know what you missed - today is not an exception. Most of the days the food has been very good - especially the soup every night is something we look forward to.
  • Mr.Venkata Sukuntha

    Navarathri Utsav at CovaiCare S3:

    It was very nice to see "வரலாறு காணாத” number of talented residents participating in the cultural programme held on Monday, 25th September 2017, as part of Navarathri celebrations in CovaiCare S3.  And surprisingly, many men also participated and surprised one and all with beautiful rendition of classical and movie (both Tamil and Hindi) songs.

    A big hand to all of them.

  • Mr.Balasubrahmanyam

    Navarathri Utsav at CovaiCare S3

    The Bharathanatyam performance by Smt. Shara Sivithkumar on Thursday, the first day of Navarathri evenings this year, was in more than one sense, thoroughly enjoyable. The performance of the talented artist can be described in several words. Simply put, it was excellent!

  • Mrs.Meera & Mr.Padmanabhan

    Navarathri Utsav at CovaiCare S3:

    My wife and I are enjoying the events and performances in spite of being far away from Covai S3. We are fortunate to have Manian, Natarajan and other professionals to cover them.

    Thanks a lot. Our best wishes.

  • Mr.Bharat & Mr.Ashok (Resident)

    During our recent visits, we noticed a vibrant community willing to help and care and even share their experiences with a bondage to others that display their overall happiness. There is a great calmness and a sense of belonging among the residents. They feel proud to be in this beautiful place. The staff and the residents are always eager to render assistance and support to their fellow residents.

    Colonel, you have established a solid foundation for the Covai S3 Senior Care Centre to live happily, peacefully, and thrive and prosper for years to come.

  • Mr.Varadarajan PV (Resident)

    We are staying in this community from July 2006 and have been eating at the Retreat for most of the time and we never ever had any problem after eating the food. The Doctor who was interacting with each one of the 27 odd residents said that the place, food and atmosphere in the Retirement Community will take care of your health.

    We keep telling all our friends and relatives or even visitors to this community during our conversation that food served here is absolutely safe and good.

  • Mr.Nambi Kalakad (Resident)

    Nearly a week ago I had an emergency and prompt help arrived from the staff and I was lifted up and put into my bed. We could immediately get a full time attender as well as a wheel chair.

    I don't find enough words to express my gratitude to all involved. The family spirit is excellent if at all it needed to be brought to light every now and then!

  • Mr.Venkata Sukuntha (Resident)

    This is yet another incident when CovaiCare jump into action when someone/anyone suddenly needs urgent attention and help. This kind of support gives a lot of mental and psychological confidence not only to the senior residents, but also to their children who are in different corners of globe, that immediate help and attention is available.

    The care and concern of the co-residents which give a morale boost, also is greatly appreciated.

  • Ms.Jaya Narayan (Resident)

    This is so reassuring to me - sitting at such a far away distance from my loved one. I know that team at CovaiCare is providing the best elder care with speed and affection. Thank you everyone. More power to all of you.

  • Mr.Vijayakumar Nrr (Facebook)

    Colonel Sridhar and team are very passionate about providing valuable services to the Senior Citizens. Kudos to their passion and dedication for their vision which we see in reality now.

  • Mr.SV Ramachandran (Facebook)

    A wonderful gated community for senior citizen! I have not yet come across better ones so far in terms of facilities, comforts, needs and commune for the seniors!
