Ashiana organises senior citizen conclave in Chennai


Delhi-based, Ashiana Housing Ltd in association with Arihant Foundation, organished Active Senior Citizen Conclave at Hyatt Regency in Chennai recently.

The conclave saw encouraging participation from over 300 senior citizens including residents of Ashiana Utsav – an active senior living in Lavasa as well as other registered participants from Chennai.

The motive behind the conclave was to spread awareness among the people of Chennai about the lifestyle and active living of seniors in their golden years of life. The conclave also gave an opportunity to the entire Utsav community to come over a single platform and share their experiences and expectations of post-retirement life.

Bharat Jain, Director, Arihant Foundation, said, “We collaborated with Ashiana for this novel initiative to spread awareness about the concept of active senior living in Chennai and by looking at the response, I can say that we have been successful.”

Several activities took place at the conclave. What added to the glamour quotient was dance performance by senior citizens, all above 60 years, on Bollywood numbers.


In the other segment of the conclave, an interactive session on why and when to choose a senior living, what facilities to look for in such a project and need and importance of concepts like Continued Care Retirement Community (CCRC) in India was organised.

The session was conducted by Ankur Gupta, Joint Managing Director, Ashiana Housing Ltd with an aim to throw light on senior living projects in the country and healthy lifestyles they offer.

Gupta, said, “Chennai offers huge potential for senior living developments. Apart from its strong economy, industrial growth, infrastructural advancement and substantial demographic base, Chennai also has strong linkages within South Indian hinterlands and offers quality social infrastructure and state-of-the-art healthcare facilities. These factors combine to make it an ideal destination for senior living projects.”
