Auroville Health Services (AVHS)

History & Today’s organization

Dr. Beena laid the foundations of Auroville Health Services in 2005 and spent five years building an effective health program. 

As Auroville’s pioneers are ageing, a need for elderly care arose and AVHS therefore provides HOMECARE to seniors of Auroville in 2 home facilities (Marika’s home and Mahalakshmi Home, plus individual Homes of the seniors) today.

This includes 24/7 care, assisting with doctor visits, organising attendant during hospitalization and helping with daily task as grocery shopping, personal hygiene.

A separate hygiene program is running to overlook the hygienic standards in Auroville’s eateries, food processing units, schools, guesthouses and public spaces.

Leaders & Team

Our team has 7 Aurovilians and many members coming from the surrounding villages.


Location:Mahalakshmi Home, Crown Road, next to Arka , Auroville 605101, Tamil Nadu India
