Athashri was a concept developed two decades ago to provide comprehensive care for senior citizens. With Aastha, we have gone a step further to ensure that the elderly are given proper multi-faceted assistance to live a healthy and carefree life.
Aastha caters to the social and personal requirements of the elderly who need assistance with activities of daily living, healthcare and who desire to live with dignity. Aastha includes multi-unit facilities and incorporates programs with a multi-tier approach to take care of the older generation that is very effective and helping them to maintain their dignity and independence.
Continuing Care Centre is ideally suitable for seniors who require help in their activities of daily living with minimum medical care, yet their condition does not require hospitalisation.
When it comes to caring for senior citizens, Aastha sets high operational standards in a unique way to suit the Indian community. Here’s how assisted living can help senior citizens with nursing care.
Aastha is where senior citizens come to live as tenants, but end up as a part of one big happy family. There are a few reasons why they love Aastha so much. Firstly, each & every member at Aastha looks after the senior citizens with selfless care & affection. Secondly, the holistic environment at Aastha and the impeccable practice of hygiene make it an ideal place for senior citizens. Also, every staff member (including moushis & mamas) are well-trained to take proper care of the senior citizens. Homemade, healthy, tasty and nutritious food is cooked every day in the kitchen with love & care so that the dietary needs are taken care of. Their ideological, mental and spiritual well-being is also uplifted by hosting numerous activities and celebrations where the senior citizens can participate and get together with like-minded people. In short, Aastha is more than just a place where they come to stay, but it is a home where they enjoy the best time of their lives.
We are extremely satisfied with the personal attention, proactive care, the warmth and kindness of all staff at Aastha including the doctors, nurses, administrators, assistants and helpers. We found each one of them, very warm and friendly. Both my parents were looked after very well at Aastha. Considering their medical conditions and the overall help ecosystem at Aastha, I have no hesitation in saying that my parents were looked after better at Aastha than what would have been possible for us to do for them at home.
I am a resident of Aastha since June 2022, following a spinal surgery which limited my mobility. Physiotherapy, which was very essential for my post operative recovery, has been very well taken care of at Aastha.
I am enjoying my stay here. Everything, including the food here, is good.
I am happy at Aastha.
Four months back, we all family members were in extreme dilemma as both the parents - my mom(Age 85) and dad(Age 91) developed serious medical conditions during a span of 4 days. During 15 days of hospitalisation, we ran through all possible solutions for their future care, as 24*7 medical supervision and assistance was must for them. ... Dr. Rama Paranjape (Geriatric physician), showed us the light of hope @Aastha, situated on Baner Pashan link road, Pune. The moment we visited the care home, we made up our mind to enroll/ admit mom and dad. The homely atmosphere, friendliness of the staff, availability of doctors and supporting medical staff, physiotherapist, medicine availability, facility for getting lab reports, tie up with nearby hospitals, Mamas and Mavshis, clean and amply lighted rooms, their daily schedules, assured us that due care will be taken and both can recover very fast. There is no much binding on the visiting hours also.
And today, after 4 months, we are very much happy and satisfied that we made a right decision. Both, mom and dad, are very well recovering and enjoying their stay @Aastha. We also get regular updates of various lab tests carried.
Aastha, is a great initiative to take care of ageing generation. We need more such institutions in near future.
Mr Thigale & family
My father (Dada) was in Aastha for 6 years and he called it his "home, away from home!"
A big thank you to the Aastha community for consistently and kindly providing excellent medical care to its residents. Their 24*7 medical staff include nurses who timely administer medicines and insulin and doctors who visit daily for rounds. They even have specialist doctor consults when needed.... Dada used to have a very busy day at Aastha with morning exercises, afternoon get-togethers with other residents, enjoying evening breeze on the terrace followed by carrom and cards with friends. He always looked forward to taking part in the Ganpati and Diwali celebrations.
Aastha is a place that covers all aspects in great detail such as good food, overall cleanliness, laundry, haircuts as well as having a friendly and helpful staff. Being away in a different country, Aastha always provided me with peace of mind. Their regular updated about my father's health were a solace.
We chose Aastha, Pune for my mother after my father's demise in 2009, when she was showing early dementia signs and needed an assisted care facility. In her 12 years of journey at Aastha, she had a lot of medical ups and downs which were very well taken care of by them. It is of great help that Aastha has tie ups with nearby good hospitals. When she eventually required full time attendant care, that was also managed excellently. Even during the Covid pandemic, the vaccinations and other protocols were handled very well. Having Dr. Rhayakar and his associates there and their periodic updates always gave me the peace of mind that she was in good hands.
I really wish Aastha team a continued success in their services.
Aastha has a very homely environment.
Both, my husband and me, are staying here following our physical debility. We feel very comfortable here with the friendly staff and the pleasant atmosphere. The rooms are spacious, clean with attached washrooms with safety bars in place. We like the simple yet tasty food here. Being a talkative and a social person by nature I was particularly very happy to experience the splendid Ganpati festival celebration at Aastha with all its cultural programmes. Coming to Aastha was a right decision.
If the facility is fully occupied, members names are registered on wait list.
Considering the different requirements of family while caring for their loved ones we have introduced following stays:
In 2001, PSCL set up Athashri - a unique housing project with a single-point focus on the senior citizens. Athashri was an instant success, which prompted PSCL to set up several projects in Pune, Bengaluru, Vadodara and have planned to spread this concept to other cities in India. A logical progression was creating the Athashri Homes Pvt. Ltd., which has the mandate to ensure efficient functioning of all Athashri housing projects, including regular maintenance.
“Aastha” caters to the social and personal requirements of the elderly who need assistance with daily activities and need medical care yet who desire and deserve to age with dignity. “Aastha” includes multiple facilities and programs that provide assistance in medical needs and daily activities such as bathing, dressing and dietary requirements. Today, the 34-year-old legacy of PSCL has 75,000+ residents across 9 cities in 200+ completed projects.
