Maya CARE has coordinators running helplines in Mumbai, Pune, and Bengaluru. Once a request is made, these coordinators connect with the vast network of volunteers and send the best-suited volunteer to the senior citizen.
Maya CARE volunteers include college students, homemakers, working professionals, and active senior citizens who visit senior citizens in their own homes to provide services. None of us can ever replace a family member. But as professionals struggle to meet the demands of active work life, each of us at Maya CARE has pledged to make up for their absence with integrity, responsibility, and patience.
Maya Care aims to fulfill the growing need for enhancing the comfort of senior citizens living in India. During their interactions with senior citizens, each of them at Maya CARE pledged to conduct their duties based on these three simple values:
- I don the identity of a Maya CARE associate with pride.
- With the faith that today
- It will be a turning point in my life
- The day I chose to assume responsibility for a future
- Of new learning, self-reliance, and dignity
