Alive HomeSolutions: In India, a study shows that prevalence of falls among adults above 60 is as high as 53% and most of the falls reported occur at home. They lead to 20% to 30% of mild-to-severe injuries like hip fractures, traumatic brain injuries, and upper limb injuries. With some key modifications your home can go a long way in ensuring a safe living space for our elders.
At Alive Home Solutions, we believe being proactive is the best way forward as we age. It is an initiative that aims to provide an environment within your home to make your daily living a safe, convenient and comfortable experience.
The proprietary ‘Alive Home Assessment Methodology' (AHAM) identifies the specific needs of every elder at home; and suggests necessary modifications for preventive refurbishment. This unique assessment intervention approach will help you take the first few steps to safety and independence in your daily routine.
Preventive Refurbishment provides the right support and infrastructure to modify your home according to the needs of your advancing years. With safety as our primary focus, most of the solutions we offer revolve around ensuring that you stay safe from accidents and falls.We believe one’s independence & ability to stay in their own space without assistance, is a real joy.Indeed, long term health and agility is the most perfect & perceptive gift that can be given to elders at home.

Alive LifeSpaces: We are coming up with a state of the art living space, in Trivandrum to begin with. As a part of the naturally landscaped region of Kerala, Trivandrum fits into all that you want in your retirement years. The fresh, pleasant and serene environment that is peaceful makes you feel vibrant yet relaxed.

 Alive Foundation: Growing old can be a beautiful experience and a lot of positive energy can be generated through this journey. Age is just a number and everything rests in how one looks at the advancing years. So at Alive we believe that elders should be active and socially connected to enjoy their golden years. We believe that anyone with a goal in life is more productive and forward looking. You would agree that it is just the perfect time to share & add value by transferring the knowledge to the next generation. At Alive Foundation, we strive to spread awareness about retirement life and its importance. The Foundation has been set up to drive the following objectives:
·         Social Interventions to improve the quality of life of elders
·         Awareness towards Care, Respect & Love for them
·         Research and development of new products and services which can enable a better life every day
Alive Foundation aims to work closely with Institutions and Government bodies to achieve these objectives.
Regarding the video which you had shared, we are working on an innovative offering for stair climbing. We will share the same with you shortly.

We are available if you need any further inputs or clarification. 

Kind Regards,

Bala Subramanian
