Besides, other services such as moving in, utility bill payment, maintenance services (electrician, plumber on call), and garbage collection from identified spots are also provided, enablingresidents to enjoy a secure, comfortable and relaxed lifestyle in a community environment where they do not have to put up with the hassles of maintaining a typical home.
Keeping in mind the health concerns of residents, Ashiana Utsav Lavasa Phase 2 also comes with a first-aid centre and a resident nurse. A 24-hour ambulance service, with a doctor and a nurse, is also available to provide peace of mind tothe residents. In fact, the housing project adjoins the Apollo Hospital, which also runs a pharmacy providing free delivery services to residents.
But it is not all health and medical care at Ashiana Utsav. There are a number of recreational facilities available for senior citizens. With hobby clubs, activity rooms, computer room, art and craft studio, library and reading lounge, and indoor and outdoor game facilities, there is always plenty to do at AshianaUtsavLavasa Phase 2.
Situated just an hour’s drive away from Pune and four hours from Mumbai, Ashiana Utsav Lavasa has everything going for it.
Present at the occasion Mr. Manoj Tyagi, VP, Ashiana Housing Ltd. said, “We understand that senior citizenshave a unique lifestyle, with special needs. They want comfort and security, but, most of all, they want dignity and independence. Today’s senior citizens are mostly retired professionals – they cherish an active post-retirement life in a secure environment. Ashiana Utsav Lavasa Phase 2 is our humble gift to these valued citizens of our country.”
With the first set of residents having moved into their homes in 2013, new residents have company of like-minded people to enjoy. “It is so refreshing to find people our own age, with similar interests and hobbies here at Ashiana Lavasa,” says Mr & Mrs Dilip Barve who are from Mumbai “Not only is the location so sublime and peaceful, we have a great time mingling with other residents and planning all sorts of fun activities. Moving in here has been one of the wisest decisions we have ever made,” they add.
The comfortable environs have had a soothing effect on several elderly residents.
Taking the possession of Utsav Lavasa Phase 2 Mr. Shree Chandan, who is originally from Orrisa working with (NTPC) says, “At Ashiana Utsav Lavasa, I have, in a manner of speaking, re-discovered myself. I have always been sports-minded but found it difficult to play with others in my earlier residence. Here, I can connect with like-minded people and keep myself fit by playing outdoor games. Plus, my wife is happy she has good company for her evening walks,”
Another customer, Ms.Renu Marwa, 63, lived in a rented flat in Juhu – located in the same housing apartment as her son. Despite frequent visits by her family, Marwa decided to move to a serene, quiet place outside the city where she could live amid nature while continuing to enjoy visits by the family.
“All my life I had lived in Chennai, and moved to Mumbai because of my son’s new job posting. But rents in Mumbai are exorbitant. It wasn’t even worth it, as my children were frequently travelling abroad for work. Finally, I decided to sell off my Chennai property and buy Ashiana Utsav villa in Lavasa,” said Marwa.
Clearly, at AshianaUtsavLavasa, retired life is meant to be enjoyed, not endured.
