Frequently Asked Questions

General

What is Elders Camp?

Elders Camp is a brand of Elders LifeCare Services Pvt. Ltd., a professionally managed, limited liability elderly care services company, registered under Companies Act 2013 (CIN No: U74900MH2015PTC265934). We offer a trusted marketplace for the elderly (senior citizens) to find opportunities, at their own pace, at their own place.

What is your objective?
Our aim is to enable and empower the growing number of elderly (people above the age of 50 years) in India by offering them various possibilities to find an elder friendly accommodation (retirement homes or paying guest facilities), online meeting with other elders and assistance / care services via our partners. With our Shared Homes concept, we are bringing a meaningful change in the lives of not only elders but also families who miss an elderly guidance and support.
How do you operate or what is your business model?

We help the elderly in finding the right services in an easy and elder friendly way. We  connect elders with other elders as well as with service providers (e.g. PG Home providers). Listing a profile or service on Elders Camp is completely free. Only when an elder or a lister wants to avail the service, we charge a nominal service fee.

Who can avail your services?

Anyone can avail our services, however, in each home, either the Host or the Guest has to be a senior citizen. In principle, all elderly (people above the age of 50 years) living in India can avail our services. We would be glad to serve specially those who live alone, are single or whose children live with them, but due to busy work / life schedule do not have enough time to attend their parents’ needs.

Services

What kind of services do you provide?

At present, we have three main service offerings: 1) Elder Friendly Accommodations (Retirement Homes or PG accommodation where an elderly don’t have to stay alone, he / she can either stay as a guest or a Host), 2) Online meetings between elders (match-making type features), 3) Elderly Care / Assistance (A variety of professional service providers, offering a range of services)

What are Paying Guest Accomodations or Shared Homes?

A shared home is a model of household in which a senior citizen either moves into a home owned by another family and stays there as a Paying Guest OR a senior citizen invites a youngster or another elder to stay in his home as a Paying Guest. In both cases, we serve our purpose of bringing an elder, who live alone, out of isolation and connect him / her with the rest of world (a family).

Why are you doing this or what you get out of it?

Ultimately, we get a lot of moral satisfaction by helping a senior citizen. However, to ensure professionalism in our approach we operate as a private limited company and not as a trust or charity (i.e. we are a for-profit company), hence for every Guest that we bring to the shared home or every service that is taken by an elder via us, we get a small fee from the Host or a nominal subscription fee (Online meets).

How do you differ from a real estate listing website?

We not only provide Guest and Host a listing platform, but also arrange meetings between the two, ensure administrative needs of the guest are met, as well as we assist the Guest and the Host in getting the necessary documentation.

Why paying guest when there are retirement homes available for seniors?

Yes, there are a number of retirement homes in India and many good quality (even luxury ones) are coming up. We also have more than 100 retirement homes as our partners, however these numbers are still not enough to cater the growing need in India, plus not everyone is willing to move to a retirement home and many good ones are not affordable by a common man.

Our objective is to eradicate isolation from a common senior citizen’s life, who may not be able to afford a retirement but can pay a fraction of the costs and live with a family. We strongly believe that this will bring a meaningful change in the lives of not only a senior citizen but also families who miss an elderly guidance and support.
