Message from the Diocese Bishop

Within the past several decades India has witnessed a dramatic shift from the traditional joint family system to that of a nuclear family. Globalisation, increased family income and access to the media have all contributed towards this major social change.The Indian Joint family concept is breaking down and children looking for better career prospects move out from the parents home. This forces the parents to opt for retirement homes. This is the direction in which our society is moving today.

As the need and affordability of senior citizens have increased, there is a severe scarcity of retirement communities in India. This is where the Lazar Nagar Retirement Home, in short LGRH, steps in.

Message from the Diocese Secretary

Lazar Garden Retirement home offers a unique blend of a secure community life coupled with the comforts of a home and a hassle free post retirement life.

It is located in a serene, peaceful ambience at Lazar Nagar. It lies within the Avadi municipality limit, close to the city of Chennai. Ideally located in the proximity of a large metropolitan city, yet affords a great deal of peace and privacy. The members will certainly enjoy a peaceful environment with others in the same age group. Residence at our LGRH will be provided with geriatric friendly environment which allows them a sense of independence.

Very. Rev. Fr. K. J. John CorEpiscopa
