::Mallika Home for Elderly Women (1921)::

 

 



Mallika Home was adjudged the 'Best Home in the Western Province' by the National Secretariat for Elders in 2003. Renovated in 2004 with the assistance of a generous bequest from the Nora & Noel Bartholomeusz Fund, the original building still retains it's old world charm.

Almost one hundred elderly women are looked after in a serene, religious atmosphere. Generous donors undertake to provide meals, often giving alms in memory of departed relatives.

Our inmates are encouraged to actively participate in various projects such as home gardening and handicrafts. What they most enjoy are the various outings organised for them by sponsors especially during 'Elders Week' each October.

 




The Adopt-A-Granny Scheme of HelpAge International, London, UK (through HelpAge Sri Lanka) assists this Home. Volunteer medical personnel visit the home regularly and look after their health and well-being. A sick ward with a resident nurse takes care of the very feeble and bed-ridden inmates. Sponsor a Granny in hospital.

 

The first Dementia Care Centre in Sri Lanka was opened at Mallika Home in March 2002 with the sponsorship of HelpAge Sri Lanka. The patients in this centre are looked after in a serene and tranquil environment by specially trained carers.
