Welcome to Parivu - A Senior Citizens' Society

Parivu is a society registered under the societies registration act 216/2013. It is started with the purpose of enriching and enhancing the life of elders in the city of Coimbatore.

The Problem
The ‘Silver Tsunami’ is going to hit us hard. With change in social demographics and the shift in the community towards urbanization and adoption of nuclear family, the rise of the elderly population poses significant challenge to the resources in the community. The peculiar problem associated with old age restricts access to vital services and resources that are often made for people who are ambulant and cognitively fit. At the same time, elderly who are well are often sidelined in the community preventing them from contributing their time, wisdom and skills to productive social causes.

The Solution
A healthy interacting vibrant community serves as an ideal place for on to grow old. Parivu hopes to engage the community to take care of the elders. By innovative programmes that we have designed we hope to ease the discomfort and disease of the elderly and encourage them to contribute fully back to the community.
