Kochi: A man-made lake as deep as 60 feet towards its centre and spread over seven acres will leave everyone in sheer awe and may even create a yearning in their minds to spend the sunset years near it. The lake is just one of the surprises that await you in the 100-acre campus of Believers Church in Thiruvalla.

Believers Church Medical College Hospital (BCMCH) is one of the trusted healthcare providers in Central Kerala, and when they come up with a project meant exclusively for senior citizens, nothing less than extraordinary can be expected. ‘Ente Veedu’, the retirement home project designed and managed by BCMCH, is set in an idyllic, pollution free, eco-friendly and serene village located at St.Thomas Nagar, Kuttapuzha. It is a space for senior citizens who wish to lead an active life even after the age of 60. This home away from home helps them explore the possibilities of graceful ageing.

“We believe that life starts at 60 and hence, we have kept it as the minimum age limit for moving into ‘Ente Veedu’,” says Rev. Dr. Daniel Johnson, Director – Medical Missions, Believers Church. ‘Ente Veedu’ has independent cottages with two bed rooms, living/dining room, kitchen, verandah and a sit-out. “The price is yet to be fixed, but we are proposing Rs. 30,000 per month as rent, which includes food. The deposit required in the beginning will be around Rs. 30 lakh and, if the inmate wishes to discontinue after five years, the whole amount will be given back,” says Fr. Daniel.

‘Ente Veedu’ has two types of accommodation facilities – cottages and apartments. Cottages, which are meant for families, offer modern facilities like TV, refrigerator, air conditioning and Wi-fi as per the requirements of the occupants. In the case of apartments, each unit will be shared by two couples. The units also have the same facilities as that of cottages.

A world-class library, tailoring unit and laundry services, weekly visit by a team of medical experts and recreational facilities are some of the amenities available on the campus. The inmates will have access to round-the-clock medical facility, and emergency medical care is also available nearby, on the BCMCH campus. Similarly, the friendly support staff of BCMCH would be at a call away to assist those who need special care.

‘Ente Veedu’ is well connected by road and rail. It is located about 4.4 km away from Thiruvalla town and 3 km from the railway station. For details, contact, e-mail: enteveedu@bcmch.org / ph: +91 9495998441
