The doctor will come to your home each month for checkup. If required he will adjust the medicine dosage depending on how the person is keeping. He may also order tests if required. The findings will be uploaded on the internet and the children of the senior citizens can access the same whichever part of the world they are. The other attractive feature is that the citizen will be offered substantial discounts on lab tests, xrays, cataract surgeries going even upto 25 percent.
Harmony Eldercare also invited Mr Y Satyanarayan, of Sri Krishna Capital to the meeting. He addressed the senior citizens on Financial Investments.
Mr Satya emphasized that the first priority of every senior citizen was to make sure that he had enough money to live a comfortable life. And therefore what a senior citizen has earned should be used to live a happy and worry free life. He advised that as we grow older we should not to worry about leaving money for the children or grandchildren. But should use the money to live well, visit doctor regularly. If after him any money does remain that may be distributed. Now he must concentrate on living a good life.
He explained the differential income from fixed deposits, stock markets , mutual funds and savings through gold. He said that gold looks an attractive investment. However not many people realize that gold has given a poor return in the last 20 years. His advice was if any senior citizen would like a tax free income then he can put money in mutual funds debt investments as the returns are tax free.
