Dear members and friends. I am a hospitality professional with 20 years of work experience. Currently I am not employed. I have a dream to spend the rest of my life in serving the needy. I opt to start a Old Age Home for people of my age, to whom I can serve and give them happiness that I expect from my family and friends.
I want to get suggestion and knowledge about starting a Old Age Home.
Kindly give me your feedback and assistance.

First of all congratulations on your noble mission. In the not so distant future I am sure there would be a requirement of more old age homes since the social equilibrium is fast changing and the nuclear family concept is mushrooming.

Let me first express one caution about starting your venture. You would have to pay close attention to how your old age home will run once you are not around to look after it. Starting a venture is relatively easier than ensuring its continued success.

To address your specific query, I would suggest that you put down on paper your entire plan that you currently have in mind considering your available resources. Please also make adequate provision for sufficient manpower since that would be a major factor. I would urge you to visit some old age homes and meet with the management of those institutions. They could give you very vital insights and tips. Many old age homes are run by nuns and it might be worth your while to meet up with these institutions too.

Like any other business venture ( with the sole exception that profit is not at all a motive for your venture) you would have to work on the set up costs, the running costs, the income streams, contingencies etc. Perhaps a tie up with an existing old age home would also be useful particularly since you can benefit from their expertise as also work out the succession planning to ensure that your noble venture would continue to benefit human kind for a long time to come.

Best Wishes

Best would be, rent a facility and start. That will give valuable learning. You will make mistakes while you are still small and the costs are less. Once you have worked out a model that works, build own facility and shift.
It's a great project with a lot of mental joy as a dividend. Kudos to you and best wishes.
