Assisted Living
TM
A very Happy and Prosperous NewYear to all our readers. May the NewYear’s bring
you and your loved ones good health and cheer. This issue, we focus on all needs
of our beloved seniors – spoken and unspoken. We also have some big news in
store for you. Continue reading to unravel the surprise.
Needs are nothing but deprivation or dearth of something. This sense of lack can
be felt by any being, young or advanced in age. It is the same drive we all have, the
urge that pushes us to fulfil. But sometimes, there are unspoken needs, which do
not surface outside. These needs are tricky and must be identified through subtle
expressions. This issue, we focus on all needs of our beloved seniors – spoken and
unspoken.
Greetings
from Athulya:
www.athulyaliving.com
Advancing in aging brings about many changes for the
elderly and these changes can affect virtually every chap-
ter of life. During late adulthood, ages between 65 till last
breath, elderly are taking various measure to fulfill their
needs. Healthcare is imperative for the elderly.

The ways in which the
Athulya experience caters
to seniors’ needs
M. Kalavalli
Head – Nursing, Quality and Training
for Athulya Assisted Living
1. Physiological needs
Food:
After the age of 60 years elderly people will
lose the taste of sweet, salty and sour. Automat-
ically the quantity of food intake will also
reduce. We at Athulya make sure to provide
nutritious food with sufficient quantity accord-
ing to the dietician’s advice for every individu-
al. Customized food is also recommended to
few residents with the consideration of their
health condition.
Activities:
‘Activities’is a very important part for a human
life especially for elderly. Even a simple body
movement will be an exercise. Athulya moti-
vates every resident to engage in some kind of
physical activity. Some residents are in special
assistance and they do not want to come out
from their living space, but they are also moti-
vated by the staff. We bring them out to create
a sociable relationship with our other
residents.
According to Maslow's (1970) theory of human motivation, a hierarchy of
human needs exists. The beginning points or basis for motivation theory is the meeting of
human physiological needs such as food, clothing and shelter. Maslow's hierarchy of needs then
continues with the human need for safety, love and belonging, esteem and lastly, the need for
self-actualization.
2.Safety needs
Safe and comfort:
Creating a comfort and hazard-free zone is very
essential in senior living spaces.
Athulya centers has Anti-Skid Floor mats, Nurse
Call System, Sturdy Furniture, Clinical Cot
(Remote Accessible), Grab Rails, Toilet Com-
mode, Bath Seat, Radium sticker on the switch
boards. Security Guards and 24/7 surveillance
camera keep monitoring the entry/exit of
every person. Unauthorized entry is restricted.
Clinical Support:
Regular physician assessment, nutrition assess-
ment, physiotherapy assessment and routine
vitals monitoring provision are given to make
sure the residents are safe and their health
conditions stable. Nursing professionals record
the health status of every senior and report to
the Clinical Supervisor. Any assistance required
by our elders at any time is taken care of by the
in-house clinical team.
www.athulyaliving.com
3. Belongingness and love needs
Residents at Athulya are more like a family.They have created a circle as a social group.We make
sure they are in constant communication with their family members especially their grandchil-
dren through What’s App, Facetime, Skype, Google Duo every day. Athulya has taken a step of
implementing the Family Communication Process, this helps their children to visualize the
progress the health condition of their parents.
4. Esteem needs
As healthcare service providers, we have certain roles and responsibilities to maintain the person-
al values and belief of every individual. Athulya staff are trained to handle the residents with
respect, love, care and affection. Listening to an elder is very important, that will improve their
power and self-esteem. Athulya creates a community experience for elders, allowing them to
have good friendships and social interactions.
5. Self-fulfilment needs
Self-Actualization/Realization:
Every individual has their talents but not everyone will showcase to others. Athulya has created a
stage for the residents to bring the hidden talents of our seniors. They are motivated to bring out
their individuality to others. This will enhance and maintain their quality of life. These needs are
focused towards realizing self-potential and self-worth, leading to fulfilment. Athulya plans activi-
ties for seniors to attain this state of adding meaning to life, by helping them overcome their chal-
lenges and participate. The sense of accomplishment comes from not doing only great things
but also small everyday activities or games that can enhance their confidence.

Design for Aging
Here’s the surprise as promised.
Looking for reliable hands to care for your aging parents? Look no further. The expertise and
know-how of Athulya in senior-care is now bigger and better at our new facility in Perungudi.
We have gone all-out, to include every detail – small and big to make our seniors comfortable,
safe and secure. What’s the difference you ask? Read further.
Athulya Perungudi boasts a collection of 54 modern apartments inside a safe and secure gated
community. The Athulya experience is slightly different, with the bonus of a residential commu-
nity involved. The environment blends the features of assisted living and individual homes to
give you the perfect senior living vibe. Athulya Perungudi is the first of its kind among the assist-
ed living centres in Chennai. The difference as highlighted above is the residential community
experience.
Apart from the difference, the rest stays the same. Senior care expertise of Athulya, senior-friend-
ly design of rooms, dedicated and empathetic staff and a reliable and responsible system focus-
ing on senior health and wellbeing.
The assisted living experience is customised to every senior as per their preference. For this
purpose, we have come up with two plans – the Independent living plan and the Assisted living
plan. The independent living plan is for seniors who wish to go about their activities by them-
selves, but with a little bit of assistance with the dry and mundane parts of daily chores.With the
assisted living plans, seniors can go about their activities with a little more of our assistance,
allowing for more relaxed experience. Other than the extent of assistance, all the features
remain the same.

Senior living is not just a fad. It is aimed at an actual rise in the quality of life for seniors. Aging is
looked upon as a stage where we do not have to enjoy pleasures.This is so untrue. All of us have
the right to celebrate life equally. Seniors are not an exception, citing the excuse of ‘age’. Aging
can be graceful. Aging can be comfortable. Aging can be fun. Come have a chat with us and you
will see. We are always happy to help and constantly strive for our own elders who have given to
us so much. Feel free to explore our assisted living centre at Perungudi.
Give us a call anytime at +91 44 4004 1616.

In the past issues of our newsletter, you may
have seen tasty and healthy recipes for
seniors. These are focused on senior-friendly
recipes that are easy to cook and eat. This
time since we are focusing on needs of our
elders, we wanted to emphasise the prefera-
ble diet for seniors. Please keep in mind that
this article aims at pointing our readers
towards the right direction and is not a clini-
cal or dietician advise. Every senior is different
and hence must customise their dietary plans
according their health conditions. It is also
important to note that too much of anything
ispoison.Asemphasisedearlier,dietaryadvic-
es should be consulted with your doctors or
dieticians. Read further to get a bird’s eye
view of the general train of thought that
prevails commonly.
Diets are better planned when rationed
according to the nutrition elements of food.
With such categorisation, it is easy to monitor
the intake of each dietary element and plan
for a greater variety. We can also help our
elders understand how each dietary contribu-
tion makes a difference towards their wellbe-
ing.
Fibres
Fibres are the dietary essentials required to
maintain a healthy digestive system. While we
age, our metabolism does too. This is why we
may not be able to eat the same quantity of
food we ate 10 or 20 years back. It is harder on
our system to process a large quantity of food.
This warrants for nutrition that can help in
easy digestion of food. This is where our fibres
come in. Include fibrous foods like cereals,
legumes and wholegrains, fruits and vegeta-
bles.
Proteins
Proteins are the bodybuilders. Yes literally.
Proteins are required for cell repair, regenera-
tion and growth of new body cells. The cell
regeneration and repair slow down automati-
cally with aging. Hence, the need for proteins.
Vegetarian sources of proteins include
wholegrains and lentils like the different types
of dal and mushroom. Non-vegetarian sources
involve lean meats and eggs. It is however
important to note which of these suit the pref-
erences of seniors as well as those that are
easy to digest for them.
Senior diet
needs
www.athulyaliving.com
Fats
Seniors need the necessary amount of fats for
energy to go about their activities. This part of
nutrition needs a lot of attention. It is perti-
nent that elders consume only the required
amount of fats. It is better to stick to healthy
fats like seeds, nuts, avocados and vegetable
oils rather than saturated fats and trans fats
.
Carbohydrates
Carbohydrates are the dietary element
needed for synthesizing the energy molecules
or fats. Carbohydrates if not taken in modera-
tion, can lead to weight gain. They are also not
easily digestible by seniors. It is better to
reduce carbohydrates intake, especially if the
senior suffers from diabetes.
Vitamins and minerals
Vitamins and minerals are found across the
large spread of vegetables and fruits. Choos-
ing the right vegetables and fruits depends on
the seniors’ health conditions. Health issues
like diabetes, kidney problems, allergies and
others must be considered. The chewability
and digestibility of veggies and fruits also play
a major role.
Water
Water makes up 70% of the body. Seniors also
require water to maintain basic health. Howev-
er, certain conditions require seniors to take in
lesser or greater amount of water. It is a
must-ask detail when going to the doctor’s.
www.athulyaliving.com
Laugh therapy
session
Seniors had a good time laughing their
hearts out with Mr. Siripananda Sampath.
Our elders felt light-hearted and energised
after this session.
Temple visit
Our elders embarked on a short trip to Peru-
mal temple to receive the almighty’s bless-
ings.
Christmas celebrations
at Athulya
Christmas was celebrated at Athulya with
delicious cakes and festive spirit.

Elderly Needs - December 2018 Newsletter Edition | Athulya Assisted Living

  • 2. A very Happy and Prosperous NewYear to all our readers. May the NewYear’s bring you and your loved ones good health and cheer. This issue, we focus on all needs of our beloved seniors – spoken and unspoken. We also have some big news in store for you. Continue reading to unravel the surprise. Needs are nothing but deprivation or dearth of something. This sense of lack can be felt by any being, young or advanced in age. It is the same drive we all have, the urge that pushes us to fulfil. But sometimes, there are unspoken needs, which do not surface outside. These needs are tricky and must be identified through subtle expressions. This issue, we focus on all needs of our beloved seniors – spoken and unspoken. Greetings from Athulya: www.athulyaliving.com
  • 3. Advancing in aging brings about many changes for the elderly and these changes can affect virtually every chap- ter of life. During late adulthood, ages between 65 till last breath, elderly are taking various measure to fulfill their needs. Healthcare is imperative for the elderly. www.athulyaliving.com The ways in which the Athulya experience caters to seniors’ needs M. Kalavalli Head – Nursing, Quality and Training for Athulya Assisted Living
  • 4. 1. Physiological needs Food: After the age of 60 years elderly people will lose the taste of sweet, salty and sour. Automat- ically the quantity of food intake will also reduce. We at Athulya make sure to provide nutritious food with sufficient quantity accord- ing to the dietician’s advice for every individu- al. Customized food is also recommended to few residents with the consideration of their health condition. Activities: ‘Activities’is a very important part for a human life especially for elderly. Even a simple body movement will be an exercise. Athulya moti- vates every resident to engage in some kind of physical activity. Some residents are in special assistance and they do not want to come out from their living space, but they are also moti- vated by the staff. We bring them out to create a sociable relationship with our other residents. According to Maslow's (1970) theory of human motivation, a hierarchy of human needs exists. The beginning points or basis for motivation theory is the meeting of human physiological needs such as food, clothing and shelter. Maslow's hierarchy of needs then continues with the human need for safety, love and belonging, esteem and lastly, the need for self-actualization. 2.Safety needs Safe and comfort: Creating a comfort and hazard-free zone is very essential in senior living spaces. Athulya centers has Anti-Skid Floor mats, Nurse Call System, Sturdy Furniture, Clinical Cot (Remote Accessible), Grab Rails, Toilet Com- mode, Bath Seat, Radium sticker on the switch boards. Security Guards and 24/7 surveillance camera keep monitoring the entry/exit of every person. Unauthorized entry is restricted. Clinical Support: Regular physician assessment, nutrition assess- ment, physiotherapy assessment and routine vitals monitoring provision are given to make sure the residents are safe and their health conditions stable. Nursing professionals record the health status of every senior and report to the Clinical Supervisor. Any assistance required by our elders at any time is taken care of by the in-house clinical team. www.athulyaliving.com
  • 5. 3. Belongingness and love needs Residents at Athulya are more like a family.They have created a circle as a social group.We make sure they are in constant communication with their family members especially their grandchil- dren through What’s App, Facetime, Skype, Google Duo every day. Athulya has taken a step of implementing the Family Communication Process, this helps their children to visualize the progress the health condition of their parents. 4. Esteem needs As healthcare service providers, we have certain roles and responsibilities to maintain the person- al values and belief of every individual. Athulya staff are trained to handle the residents with respect, love, care and affection. Listening to an elder is very important, that will improve their power and self-esteem. Athulya creates a community experience for elders, allowing them to have good friendships and social interactions. 5. Self-fulfilment needs Self-Actualization/Realization: Every individual has their talents but not everyone will showcase to others. Athulya has created a stage for the residents to bring the hidden talents of our seniors. They are motivated to bring out their individuality to others. This will enhance and maintain their quality of life. These needs are focused towards realizing self-potential and self-worth, leading to fulfilment. Athulya plans activi- ties for seniors to attain this state of adding meaning to life, by helping them overcome their chal- lenges and participate. The sense of accomplishment comes from not doing only great things but also small everyday activities or games that can enhance their confidence. www.athulyaliving.com Design for Aging
  • 6. Here’s the surprise as promised. Looking for reliable hands to care for your aging parents? Look no further. The expertise and know-how of Athulya in senior-care is now bigger and better at our new facility in Perungudi. We have gone all-out, to include every detail – small and big to make our seniors comfortable, safe and secure. What’s the difference you ask? Read further. Athulya Perungudi boasts a collection of 54 modern apartments inside a safe and secure gated community. The Athulya experience is slightly different, with the bonus of a residential commu- nity involved. The environment blends the features of assisted living and individual homes to give you the perfect senior living vibe. Athulya Perungudi is the first of its kind among the assist- ed living centres in Chennai. The difference as highlighted above is the residential community experience. Apart from the difference, the rest stays the same.

The independent living plan is for seniors who wish to go about their activities by them- selves, but with a little bit of assistance with the dry and mundane parts of daily chores.With the assisted living plans, seniors can go about their activities with a little more of our assistance, allowing for more relaxed experience. Other than the extent of assistance, all the features remain the same. Athulya Assisted Living Launches at Perungudi www.athulyaliving.com

All of us have the right to celebrate life equally. Seniors are not an exception, citing the excuse of ‘age’. Aging can be graceful. Aging can be comfortable. Aging can be fun. Come have a chat with us and you will see. We are always happy to help and constantly strive for our own elders who have given to us so much.

  • 8. In the past issues of our newsletter, you may have seen tasty and healthy recipes for seniors. These are focused on senior-friendly recipes that are easy to cook and eat. This time since we are focusing on needs of our elders, we wanted to emphasise the prefera- ble diet for seniors. Please keep in mind that this article aims at pointing our readers towards the right direction and is not a clini- cal or dietician advise. Every senior is different and hence must customise their dietary plans according their health conditions. It is also important to note that too much of anything ispoison.Asemphasisedearlier,dietaryadvic- es should be consulted with your doctors or dieticians. Read further to get a bird’s eye view of the general train of thought that prevails commonly. Diets are better planned when rationed according to the nutrition elements of food. With such categorisation, it is easy to monitor the intake of each dietary element and plan for a greater variety. We can also help our elders understand how each dietary contribu- tion makes a difference towards their wellbe- ing. Fibres Fibres are the dietary essentials required to maintain a healthy digestive system. While we age, our metabolism does too. This is why we may not be able to eat the same quantity of food we ate 10 or 20 years back. It is harder on our system to process a large quantity of food. This warrants for nutrition that can help in easy digestion of food. This is where our fibres come in. Include fibrous foods like cereals, legumes and wholegrains, fruits and vegeta- bles. Proteins Proteins are the bodybuilders. Yes literally. Proteins are required for cell repair, regenera- tion and growth of new body cells. The cell regeneration and repair slow down automati- cally with aging. Hence, the need for proteins. Vegetarian sources of proteins include wholegrains and lentils like the different types of dal and mushroom. Non-vegetarian sources involve lean meats and eggs. It is however important to note which of these suit the pref- erences of seniors as well as those that are easy to digest for them. Senior diet needs www.athulyaliving.com
  • 9. Fats Seniors need the necessary amount of fats for energy to go about their activities. This part of nutrition needs a lot of attention. It is perti- nent that elders consume only the required amount of fats. It is better to stick to healthy fats like seeds, nuts, avocados and vegetable oils rather than saturated fats and trans fats . Carbohydrates Carbohydrates are the dietary element needed for synthesizing the energy molecules or fats. Carbohydrates if not taken in modera- tion, can lead to weight gain. They are also not easily digestible by seniors. It is better to reduce carbohydrates intake, especially if the senior suffers from diabetes. Vitamins and minerals Vitamins and minerals are found across the large spread of vegetables and fruits. Choos- ing the right vegetables and fruits depends on the seniors’ health conditions. Health issues like diabetes, kidney problems, allergies and others must be considered. The chewability and digestibility of veggies and fruits also play a major role. Water Water makes up 70% of the body. Seniors also require water to maintain basic health. Howev- er, certain conditions require seniors to take in lesser or greater amount of water. It is a must-ask detail when going to the doctor’s. www.athulyaliving.com
  • 10. Laugh therapy session Seniors had a good time laughing their hearts out with Mr. Siripananda Sampath. Our elders felt light-hearted and energised after this session. Temple visit Our elders embarked on a short trip to Peru- mal temple to receive the almighty’s bless- ings.
