Apart from this NIRA also takes the initiative to vist homes for the aged (vridhdhashrams) and care for those neglected elderly persons whose family has abandoned them. This gives the forlorn, depressed elderly persons something to look forward to and cheers them up. This involves taking fruits, magazines and other gifts for them that they will enjoy, spending time with them, helping them pay the living costs at the Center, etc.
