A complex that promises people over 55 homes with attendants, entertainment and sport options has come up on the city’s southern outskirts.Aumorto in Baruipur, nearly 40km from the city, is not a new concept: other cities started offering such facilities to the elderly several years ago. But Aumorto underscores the demand for such a facility in a city where children are forced to migrate elsewhere in search of livelihood leaving behind aged parents.The apartments on the 7-acre campus will be thrown open on May 1 after the official inauguration on Thursday. More than 25 per cent of the 40 apartments have been booked and the authorities claim of being swamped with queries every day from people in Calcutta and the districts.Not every one wants to live here because their children have moved elsewhere. There are other draws: the company of people of similar age and background, no need to worry about trifle matters such as plumbing or security guard. In the first phase, Aumorto, set up by the Aurobindo Institute of Culture, will offer 40 air-conditioned apartments of four categories, small medium, large and extra large.
