SMT. SHANTABEN SWAROOPCHAND SHAH DAY CARE CENTER FOR SENIOR CITIZENS

During the last couple of years, drastic changes have taken place in the living pattern of the families in urban areas. The joint family system is disintegrating and the children also go to foreign lands in pursuit of higher studies and better future career prospects. The parents are left alone at times to fend for themselves at old age. At this hour, they need both physical and communal support.
