Athulya – Assisted living in the heart of Chennai City

ATHULYA is a recently launched assisted living facilities in Chennai, India, for senior citizens. Part of the HealthAbove60 group, Athulya centres have been built with senior citizens in mind.  The interiors are both aesthetic and senior friendly. Athulya offers a comprehensive environment that enables seniors to live with an opportunity to be fully in control of their time and decisions. It also enables the seniors to spread their networks, form friendships with the like-minded seniors. With extensive facilities of medical care round the clock,  food options based on personal preferences, entertainment and wellness programs – Athulya helps its residents to lead a full life.  Short-term (as little as one month) to long term (years) rental options available.

Athulya’s first facility is in Alwarpet.  It is an aesthetically furnished large 3-room apartment in an apartment complex.  The rooms are spacious and there are elegant and well furnished common areas as well.  Each room comes with 4-function electric cots that look like traditional beds (as against hospital cots), providing each resident all the comforts of a height-adjustable Fowler cot while maintaining a teak/rosewood cot appearance.   A fully furnished and stocked kitchen is included along with a full-time cook who provides what the residents need taking into consideration individual preferences and dietary requirements.

We visited the facility in May 2017.  The area is a very quiet side street in the heart of the city, a stone throw from the Music Academy.  The apartment complex has a wide driveway and the car can reach close the the entrance of the apartment.  The Athulya facility is on the first floor and appears to be a remodeled 2000 (by our estimate) square feet apartment.  There are 3 rooms, one double room, one spacious single room that can be used as a double room if required and and a single room.  There is also a fully equipped kitchen.  The floors have anti-slip tiles and the bathrooms have all the railings and grab bars required for a senior citizen to use them safely.

There are also elegantly furnished common areas including a hall/tv room/visitor meeting room,  and a couple of balconies/sit-outs.  The rooms are furnished simply, with one or two cots (based on whether it is a single room or a twin-sharing one) and shelf space.  The cots are multi-function patient cots with a wood finish making them look like elegant but normal furniture.  A reading/writing table is provided on request.

There is wi-fi connection so the residents can connect with their children over voice and video calling at any time.

Athulya’s Alwarpet facility is in the heart of the city, close to the Music Academy.
