Home for the retired

Home for the retired

Many dream of leading their retired life amid lush green surroundings, away from the humdrum of city life, and without compromising on modern facilities.

Some desire to live in idyllic surroundings and look forward to doing things they missed slogging it out at the workplace, meeting deadlines.

But, is all this possible? Yes. Nearly 10 years of relentless efforts by a team of professionals has seen the birth of a retirement village — SushruthaVishranti Dhama (Suvidha) Retirement Village. This village, which is about 1.5 km off Bangalore-Kanakapura Road, has come up on a nearly 30-acre land.

The undulating terrain, when bought 10 years ago, was a piece of barren land with patches of shrubs. Visitors are thoroughly checked and then only let in, indicating that sufficient security measures are in place. There is adequate parking space too.

For the benefit of the aged, ramps have been laid at all places. On either side of the ramps, a variety of plants, mostly flower-bearing, have been planted. The cottages in the village are of three types. The most basic one will have a bedroom, a kitchen, a bathroom and a sitting room. It also has a sit-out for the owner to relax. All the cottages have solar water heaters in them.

Taking advantage of a flowing stream in the land, an artificial lake has been created, which has helped in improving the water table in the village. The village could be described as a judicious mix of a villa and a resort. It has a club house, play area and a canteen to cater to the needs of residents.

To ensure that the occupants are not disturbed, the village has a list of dos and dont’s and it covers keeping guests in the village. The policy on pre-owned cars might leave occupants disappointed. They cannot park them in the residential area, but in the common area provided by the village.

The company offers site visits on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays with prior appointment. Permanent residents will have to be above 55 years. For more information, log on to www.suvidha.co.in.
