Sisters of Mercy of Holy Cross

Holy Cross Senior Citizens' Home, Trasi

At present this Home is able to serve 32 inmates, men and women alike, of every caste and creed.  As many of our inmates are enrolled in their helpless condition, they totally depend on us for getting their work done. Comprehending their pains and sorrows we collectively help our inmates to lead a life of comfort and easiness with not only the basic essentials of food, clothing and shelter but also compassion and care. Solitude is a deadly enemy during aging and they need to avoid this at all cost. We help them find ways of interacting with their companions to keep off their loneliness. A few of them maintain their physical and mental health by going around in the farm and attending the liturgical services in the church. Physical exercise is essential for aged persons. Our home provides for them physical exercises and some recreational facilities, which reduce their hypertension and other ailments without medicine. They also feel happy and forget their negative feelings. It also helps them to swerve from    boredom, to    fill their heart with love and joy to share with others and make them feel that they are cared for.
