Akshaya Trust opens its 5th free old age home at Velappanchavadi for destitute senior citizens.


Akshaya Trust, a non-profit organization, has been providing shelter to destitute senior citizens

for more than two decades. The Akshaya Trust presently provides free home to 180 seniors
across its four homes located at Muduchur, Pallikaranai, Valasaravakkam, and Palavakkam.
The organization uses a comprehensive screening process to identify and admit deserving senior citizens abandoned by their families. The residents are provided with comfortable accommodation, healthy food, medical care, entertainment, happy living and above all love and care. The homes are equipped with solar electricity, mosquito nets, washing machines, TV & audio systems to make the lives of the residents comfortable and peaceful.

Akshaya’s free old-age homes, known for their clean and healthy environment, well-defined
process and dedicated staff members, have garnered the support of many generous donors.
Many families regularly celebrate their special days with the old age home residents, creating
an extended family-like environment. Impressed by the dedicated service of Akshaya Trust,
many corporate and business houses too have been extending their financial assistance. Still,
the ever increasing expenses in terms of food, shelter and medical treatments, demand the
support of more generous donors, to help the cause.

On the other hand, keeping in mind the growing need for support to the destitute senior
citizens, Akshaya Trust began the operations of its 5th free old age home at Velappanchavadi,
opposite to the Thiruverkadu temple site entrance arch at the poonamallee high road.

This home will provide new life for 120 senior citizens, including 30 bedridden people. With this new home, Akshaya will be supporting 300 needy destitute senior citizens in total.
The Velappanchavadi home was inaugurated on 7th of May 2023, at 10.00 am by the Chief
Guest Shri. Poochi.S.Murugan, Chairman of Tamil Nadu Housing board & Vice President of
South Indian Film Artists Association. Shri C.S. Gopala Krishnan, CMO/ Director of Hyundai
Motors India Limited, Sri.Sivanka Lankalingam, JMD of Lanson Toyota and Kalaimanai Smt Devayani Rajakumaran, Cine artist were the Guests of Honor. The function was
