Who are we?
In Maya CARE Foundation, the word persons with Disabilities (PwDs) has been reinstated as ‘Bindu’ means ‘Focus’ in Sanskrit. Having intensive training/Mentoring/Coaching we are transforming into Leaders to run sustainable organizations. We provide professional and empathetic service to the elderly. None of us can ever replace a family member. But as professionals struggle to meet the demands of an active work life, each of us at Maya CARE Foundation have pledged to make up for their absence with integrity, responsibility and patience.
Maya CARE Foundation volunteers who visit the elderly range from 18-year-old students, working professionals or homemakers to 80-year-old retired individuals from different cultural, racial, religious backgrounds who are eager to help. During the visit, a volunteer could assist with paperwork, shopping, using gadgets, reading to someone with failing eyesight, accompanying them to doctor visits, sitting with them in hospital and more.
All the coordination among volunteers, who serve the elderly is facilitated by the PWDs through the helpline number of every regional language in India. The team comprising differently-abled professionals manages all functions including recruitment of other PWDs and volunteers, orientation, training, city coordination, payments, care-home outreach and more.
Maya Care aims to fulfil the growing need for enhancing the comfort of senior citizens living in India. During our interactions with senior citizens, each of us at Maya CARE pledge to conduct our duties based on these three simple values:
- I don the identity of a Maya CARE associate with pride.
- With the faith that today
- 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
On this date, I pledge to CARE with:
Be honest in every transaction. If something has been missed out, admit our mistake and rectify it at the earliest.
Ensure that the task undertaken is completed in the time frame committed. If the task cannot be accomplished due to an unavoidable reason, inform the service recipient of the same.
Treat each service recipient with respect and make a sincere effort to understand the expectation in each transaction.
