Based in the island of Mauritius, I wish to make an urgent appeal to your kind support and generosity to help our elderly community in having a decent retirement living.
It all started nearly a year back when my grand mother began to have a series of complicated health issues. Initially she was admitted to our supposedly one and only 'state-of-the-art' hospital due to the emergency of her critical state but given the poor quality service and conditions (to the extent of having torn bed linen!), we decided to have her shifted to our most renowned clinic hospital. Yet again despite now affording the most expensive healthcare services, she would still not be enjoying the best of health and would return home with a massive bedsore.
Considering her weak health conditions, we thought it would be best to have her permanently being assisted by professional healthcare assistants - well, it turned out there are not any 'professional' ones out here as we ended up changing recruitment agency so many times now for they do seriously lack proper training - no wonder, the mess at them hospitals!
At this stage, I need not add my two cents as to the conditions of the few care homes that we have as well! The first and last I have been (which is from where some of those so-called professional healthcare assistants basically work) my goodness it was just TRAUMATISING! It was day but it was dark, I was moved by their poor conditions and felt really sorry and pity for the sum of money that their families are spending for that kind of cheap service. I wish I could share videos of that terrible moment but I believe they deserve dignity and respect above all so I might just upload a picture.
Conclusively, there's no proper care and love, no proper hygiene and overall no proper quality service.
After an intense research work, I have been working on this project for a few months now as to building up the first quality care home of international standard with tailor-made services with view to best attend to the needs of our elderly people.

Our homes offer long and short term care for people in need of nursing or residential care from end-of-life to convalescent care. We firmly believe that everyone deserves dignity and respect and as they approach the end of their life, we shall provide sensitive and compassionate end-of-life care through many of our care homes while we shall also provide convalescent care to help people who need to recuperate after a hospital stay and to support them to be well enough to go back home.

1. Retirement Housing & Assisted Living - Resident may choose to buy a house or appartment with lease option.
2. Residential Care Home - Resident may simply choose a short term or long term residential care at a monthly cost.
3. Domiciliary Private Care - Resident who does not wish to change to care home lifestyle may still opt for our domiciliary private care and enjoy the same quality service at their own residence.
4. Day Club Care - Our day clubs will provide a friendly and stimulating home-away-from-home for people who are still living at home but who may need some additional support during the day while their family carers have the peace of mind of knowing they are safe and cared for.
5. Homeless Shelter & Rehabilitation - We shall offer temporary and permanent housing opportunities to homeless and low-income families and individuals and help them through their rehabilitation phase.
