  1. IN 1920 I HAD A RELATIVE A CLEMANTINA MCCARTHY WHO WAS AN INMATE AND DIED.AND WAS BURIED THERE.
    IS IT POSSIBLE TO GET ANY DETAILS ,
    WAS THERE ANY RELATIVES . IT WAS MOVING TO HEAR OF HER CIRCUMSTANCES,

  2. IT WAS ST JOSEPHS CALCUTTA

  3. thanks for providing all the addresses but if children give lil bit more respect to their parents…thn there will be no need of any old age home

  4. mirra aggarwal says:

    my mother needs to stay in old home in kolkata. can you guide me

  5. Jayasri Hart says:

    We don’t need “homes” but “communities,” where senior residents make their own decisions about how to run it. Adult children and grandchildren can and will happily get involved if the parents want it, but ultimately it is the seniors who own the home. If any of the above institutions fits this description, I would like to support it in any way I can.

  6. Dear Mira ,
    There is a newly comissioned old home by Helpage India at Chetla , Kolkata . When I visited it during Puja, it had 5 members only . Women of the age group 60-70 can apply. They have to be literate .
    It was nice cosy place

  7. Ruprekha Chowdhury says:

    Dear Janice,

    Your account of your relative being sheltered at St. Joseph’s Home is very moving. I am a grad student currently writing my doctoral disseratation on elderly women living in old age homes in Kolkata. Would you be able to provide a basic history on the first old age home considered to be established in Kolkata? Also, would you be able to narrate your story about your relative, particularly your first hand experience with St. Joseph’s Home, via email? That would be truly helpful indeed.

    My hunch matches yours–it could be no other institution other than Little Sisters of the Poor. But i just wanted to be doubly sure, since i put these as ethnographic accounts in my dissertation chapter.
    I look forward to hearing from you.

    SIncerely,
    Ruprekha

  8. In researching my ancestry i found a gt,gt, great grandfather Washington McCarthy married a Clemantina Fox in Meerut. in 1862, in my searches i find him dying apart in 1881, and Clemantina dying in The Little Sisters Of The Poor., Also not sure as her name has been recorded as Fox And Jose. Sounds portugese to me. Washington was born in Constantinople of Irish parents, was in the 2nd Dragoons stationed at meerut, took part of the seige of Lucknow, I believe there would be Mccarthys in India today as decendants although most of them returned to the U.K. It is in the indian records i found this information. i.e. marriage certificates, and chilren born in India. . Is this what you wanted. No replys from St Josephs have been received.

  9. Udatto Chakravarty says:

    Im a man of 38 doing business in Kolkata and Ive got my parents and wife and a daughter. Suddenly I feel to do something for the aged angels of old age homes with my limited means. Plz help.

  10. Ruprekha Chowdhury says:

    Dear Janice,

    Thank you so much for your informative post. Unfortunately, I do not check this website that frequently, hence, my tardy response. My apologies. Would you have an email address where I can write in details about my work and what I am looking for?
    My work took me to various old age homes both public and private, in and around Kolkata. I am trying to locate the first old age home established in Kolkata. Your post about your distant relative attracted my attention and that was when I thought of writing to you. I would really appreciate if we can further our conversation over emails. My dissertation would immensely benefit from your first hand account!

    Best,
    Ruprekha

  11. DM BHATTACHARYYA says:

    I am a casual resident of Ramkrishna Oldage Home in Hooghly district for the last ten years. . I have found that infirm old people who could not disbelief their children/relatives and handed over their life-time savings and property to them (children or relatives) in no time those simple hearted people are thrown to oldage homes. So, my humble advice to the old people who are about to leave their homes to take shelter in oldage home that keep your assets under your control. The assets mainly cash will lookafter you better than your past residence. With regards.

  12. ramadevi poddar says:

    i have three brother and i m small what heppen ourat ourat ka dushman hota hai koi bhi ma ko rakhna nahi chata please help me kya karu. koi sasta sunder old age ka naumber ya giud kare

  13. DM BHATTACHARYYA says:

    Dear Ramadeviji,

    You may contact phone no:(033) 26860546 of an moderate oldage home just 3km on the western side of Chinsurah station (towards Delhi Road). It will be better to live there away from Gharki ki Dushman. With best wishes.

  14. Ishita Mukherjee says:

    I plan to take early retirement and would like to give company to the elderly in the old age home. Do one need some basic course to be initiated?
    Though currently I live in Pune, would like to be associated in Kolkata, my home town.

    Can anybody please guide me?

    Regards, and wish every one, a very happy new year.

  15. Dear Ishita Didi,
    I congratulate you for your plan to serve old people after your retirement.Accept me as your Dada (76 years), an widower having one son MA, Bed.HM of a Boys’ school and one daugher MSc,Bed, HM of a Girls’ school. Even then, I am retaining a single room with attached bath) in an Oldage Home in a village in Hooghly district near Chinsurah paying whole years’ charges. Time to time I go there for a fortnight or so. What I have seen there, that many of the residents require compassion which is a lost coin to them.So far I ascertained, there is no such training at your age. You may contact Ramkrishna Mission, Belur Math or ‘Astharag” (near Majherhat bridge) managed by Wivies of Port Commissioners’ Officers Welfare Association.

  16. we run 2 homes 1 for d destitute elderly n d other a paid home for those who can afford in Barrackpore west bengal.There r another 38 elderlys on d streets we support,we need d support of like minded people to help our homeless grandmas n grandpas

  17. My mother is a desciple of Ramakrishna Math & Mission. Now I want to send her in an old age home under the guidance of Ramakrishna mission. Can you give some idea and help me in this regard.

    Please send me prospectus of an old age home near to belur Math.

  18. I. R. Chari says:

    I am trying to find a comfortable, clean and safe senior citizens’ home (on payment) run preferably by the Ramakrishna Mission or any other known charitable group in and around Kolkata and its suburbs including Belur and Dakshineshwar for my mama (late 70s) and mashi (early 80s) – descendants from a former old Zamindar family – both unmarried and without any dependents.

    At present they run their small house and conduct their domestic responsibilities with considerable difficulty. As they have less and less domestic support and as they require periodic medical attention, they need to be in a kindly, caring home where they will be free from their daily domestic chores. Both of them are mobile and can really take care of themselves if only they had someone to look after their everyday needs, like cooking, washing, cleaning, etc. They have both received diksha from the R.K. Mission and therefore would be the most comfortable in an institute run by the Mission.

    I and the rest of my mamu and mashi’s family would be most grateful for any information regarding an appropriate place where they can settle peacefully for the rest of their lives. I would like to mention that most members of the family are also aging and located far from them and thus unable to give them the support that they need. It goes without saying that they are well loved and respected and would be frequently visited by all of us.

  19. HUMAN SOCIATIC WELFARE ORGANISATION 2002 says:

    We have an Old Age Home near Shyamchak, Kharagpur, Midnapur (W) (SABITA OLD AGE HOME).
    We are looking forward in taking care of the poor, downtroden and the older people (both male and female)
    We wish to provide them with regular medical check-ups, personal grooming, educational guidance for the young but poor.
    As it is obvious that in acheiving the said goal, we require a huge amount of funding. We have been trying our level best to cope up with our limited resorces. In acheiving the afforsaid goal, we require more funding from some kind hearted people.
    We would request to all those who feel that they would also like to be a part of our mission, they can mail us OR can call us at:
