A habitat that offers 147 independent units with nursing staff, medical attendants and a host of activity options is coming up for the elderly in New Town’s Action Area I, a stone’s throw from Central Mall. The assisted living home is being built by the Housing Infrastructure Development Corporation Limited (Hidco) as part of its corporate social responsibility programme on a plot opposite Swapna Bhor Senior Citizens’ Park. This is the first time an agency of the Bengal government is involved in building a home for the aged. The centre, named Snehodiya by chief minister Mamata Banerjee, will be the first of its kind in New Town. The 11-storeyed building, which is likely to be unveiled early next year, will have single and double-occupancy air-conditioned serviced units and will accommodate 204 people.A doctor and attendants will be available 24×7. The centre will have arrangements with hospitals. The first eight floors will have standard single and double-occupancy rooms and the ninth and the 10th floors will have what Hidco calls premium units. There will be 14 premium units. The security deposit for a double-occupancy room (415sq ft) is Rs 45 lakh. For a single-occupancy room (205 sq ft), the security deposit is Rs 25 lakh. The monthly rent and maintenance fee will be Rs 16,000. The security deposit for a premium unit will be Rs 50 lakh.
