Aastha is where senior citizens come to live as tenants, but end up as a part of one big happy family. There are a few reasons why they love Aastha so much. Firstly, each & every member at Aastha looks after the senior citizens with selfless care & affection. Secondly, the holistic environment at Aastha and the impeccable practice of hygiene make it an ideal place for senior citizens. Also, every staff member (including moushis & mamas) are well-trained to take proper care of the senior citizens. Homemade, healthy, tasty and nutritious food is cooked every day in the kitchen with love & care so that the dietary needs are taken care of. Their ideological, mental and spiritual well-being is also uplifted by hosting numerous activities and celebrations where the senior citizens can participate and get together with like-minded people. In short, Aastha is more than just a place where they come to stay, but it is a home where they enjoy the best time of their lives.

About Company

In 2001, PSCL set up Athashri - a unique housing project with a single-point focus on the senior citizens. Athashri was an instant success, which prompted PSCL to set up several projects in Pune, Bengaluru, Vadodara and have planned to spread this concept to other cities in India. A logical progression was creating the Athashri Homes Pvt. Ltd., which has the mandate to ensure efficient functioning of all Athashri housing projects, including regular maintenance.

“Aastha” caters to the social and personal requirements of the elderly who need assistance with daily activities and need medical care yet who desire and deserve to age with dignity. “Aastha” includes multiple facilities and programs that provide assistance in medical needs and daily activities such as bathing, dressing and dietary requirements. Today, the 34-year-old legacy of PSCL has 75,000+ residents across 9 cities in 200+ completed projects.
