The dream is now a movement propelled by a growing network of volunteers across cities and supporters across the world.

How does Maya CARE work?
- Helpline telephone number and website/published email for senior citizens/people with disability to reach out to Maya CARE.
- The nature of the request is captured by the Maya CARE admin team.
- A suitable volunteer is identified (volunteers pre-register with Maya CARE) and need to submit standard documentation to demonstrate they are legally permitted to work with vulnerable adults.
- Maya CARE Admin introduces the volunteer to the person requesting the service.
- The volunteer visits and fulfils the requirement.
Since the inception of Maya CARE Foundation in India in 2009, our Founders Abhay Joshi and Manjiri Gokhale Joshi have funded the service through their personal income. Over 1500 senior citizens have benefitted from this service over the years supported by over 500 committed service associates and coordinators.

As a senior citizen, going through the usual slowdown in life, it has made a big difference to me to have the company of volunteers Ms. Bishakha Ghosh and Ms. Angela Bhat so generously given. I have also had much practical help from them, in generally getting around in the city, whether for diversion or for necessity. The obvious recognition by Maya CARE, that an old person does not necessarily have to be bed-ridden or incapacitated, in order to gain help and attention, and lead a pleasant, cheerful life - this is what makes Maya CARE deserving of its name.

I am thankful to Maya CARE Foundation for sending a buddy to my 87 yr old Father in law. Mr. Shende (volunteer) who visits us once a week or fortnight, chats with my father in law who has mild alzheimer's and mobility restrictions. Mr. Shende instilled confidence in him, convinced him to do a lot of good things.
