I believe that Healthcare should be universal & affordable to all the sections of the society. Quality, Safety, Ethics & Empathy should be the guiding principles in running any Healthcare Institution.

It is a charitable venture for lonely senior citizens & those with early Alzeimers, Parkinsonism or infirm elderly people to spend some quality time in their twilight period.
