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.
