nnnnnnnnnnThe Founder


hree Ramkrishna Seva manda, Anand, is more of a movement rather than an institution, The founder of Shri Ramkrishna Seva Mandal was late Shree S.S. Patel and it was he who first began his service to society by setting up Shri Ramkrishna Seva Mandal in 1954. he was very sensitive to problems and ills in our society and as a result he thought of the plight and helplessness of the Aged people. The Anand Dham was the result of his deep concern for the Aged People.

Anand Dham, a home for the aged was set up in 1989 in conformity with the vision of Shri Ramkrishna Seva Mandal, ‘Bahujan Hitay, Bahujan Sukhay’. The foresight of the founders for a home for the Aged people is relevant in today’s context because the problem of the aged are not understood by young generation of today. It is the vision to help the Aged men and women who have no one to look after them or those who are disowned and abandoned by their own relatives. It is also envisaged that those who take shelter at Anand Dham are to be treated with full human honour and dignity.

The mission of Shri Ramkrishna Seva Mandal has been to help people from all walks of life in order to help them face hardships and live like independently. Hence the home for the Aged renders valuable service to society.

Tucked away in the midst of fields, the place is in peaceful surroundings that are quite suitable for the Aged People. Anand Dham is spread over an area of 5 acres of land and has sprawling precincts that are convered by greenery and garden. That garden surrounds the R.C.C. structure that is built for accommodation of the old people. The lush green scenic beauty of Anand Dham adds to the splendor of the place.

The building of Anand Dham is quite commodious. The rooms are built with a view to providing ideal residence to old people with all facilities at hand. Each room can accommodate two persons with beds, desks, cupboards, kitchen and attached bathrooms. Mosquito nets are provided on each bed. Facilities like fans, lighting and twenty four hour water supply are also ensured to make the life of the inmates convenient and comfortable.

Since the inmates are old people, devices that help pass time in meaningful way are provided. They can engage themselves in activities of their liking and choice. A library, nursery, orchards and animal husbandry are at their disposal to fill the void which is generally felt in old age. Hygienic and nutritious food is provided at the central Mess of Anand Dham.

Old and aged people need health care. This service is given by Anand Hospital, a sister institution of Shri Ramkrhsina Seva Mandal, Emergency medical help is also provided by the management. Religion is the core of life and great relief in old age. Prayer and meditation Hall is built to support faith of the inmates where they can offer worship to the Almighty God.

Old care homes are typical residences of the aged but Shri Ramkrishna Seva Mandal sees to it that the inmates do not feel separated from the society. Therefore a number of activities are arranged every month. Particularly on days of religious feasts, programs are arranged when people from outside join the old people and share joy and happiness with them. Visitors are also allowed to see the inmates and help them.

Smt. Jyotsnaben K. Patel, Hon. Secretary, has upheld the vision of Shree Vakil Saheb and redoubled the endeavour to bring light and joy in the life of the inmates. After she succeeded as Hon. Secretary She launched a new campaign and modernized Anand Dham. At present thirty persons reside at the place with complete safety and comfort.
