Gratitude poured from the hearts of elderly residents at the Home of Compassion in Suva yesterday as their Diwali came early, thanks to Vinod Patel Foundation Trust.

The trust, led by its director, Bachubhai Patel, visited the home and made a donation of $10,000.

This is to be used for the operational expenses of the home – a not-for-profit organisation run by the Sisters of Compassion. It has been operating in Fiji for the past 61 years. Services provided are residential care for the sick, frail and elderly, counselling services, networking and referral work in relation to Age Care, residential care for six women with severe physical and mental disabilities and short-term or respite care to relieve families who nurse their own elderly or disabled relative.

Trust general manager human resources development Ranju Kumar said the organisation was both excited and humbled to partner with the Home of Compassion in enriching the lives of the elderly women who are in their care.

“This presents a wonderful opportunity for Vinod Patel Foundation Trust to support many more older people to create the support they need to continue to remain healthy, active and connected for as long as possible.  We also share a passion for wellness, ageing well and living life to the fullest, and hope to support seniors with modern and creative solutions to reach their life goals,” Ms Kumar said.

“I applaud the directors of Vinod Patel & Co. Ltd for taking this initiative in assisting the aged care system. The Home of Compassion is to be commended for their exemplary contribution towards serving the needs of the poor, frail, elderly and disabled women. We sincerely thank them for instituting a more modern, sustainable and client driven approach to age care.”
