Elderly age, often regarded as the second childhood, needs the highest care to deal with their routine lives, to handle their deteriorating health, while their loved ones are away from them. Getting busy with our own lives, we forget that taking care of those who once took care of us is the greatest honor ever. With ageing, their mental health, emotional well-being, and loneliness become the greatest concerns in the home environment. Time and again, we underestimate the power of a touch, smile, kind words, a listening ear, an honest compliment or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.

Realizing this, Tanvi Mallya's Elder Care Services(TMECS)offers professionally designed programmes to address the issues of loneliness, mental & emotional well-being, in addition cognitive care and the veering towards reduced opportunities and
motivation to engage in cognitive activities. This at-home mental health service provider is a pioneer in creating awareness about elderly mental health and their tryst with disorders like Alzheimer’s and other forms of Dementias. “We specialize in working with elderly diagnosed with such neurodegenerative diseases. We are continuously and consistently working towards bettering the quality of life for the elderly, and enabling families to facilitate ‘ageing in place’ – one that the world is moving towards,” asserts Tanvi Mallya, Founder & Neuropsychologist, TMECS.
