Gideons’ Memorial Home for the elderly is an idea that would have been associated with big western cities but one passionate doctor in Meru-Kenya believes even residents of his rural county deserves the best.

The facility which is on Meru-Maua Highway has a beatiful green lawn, where the elderly can walk, exercise or just rest leisurely admiring the serene environment.

He thought of setting up a modern care center for the old people whose caretakers or guardians are not available because of their busy schedule in their lives to provide them with adequate love and care.

“For elderly people to live well to advanced age, they require good nutrition, medical attention, love, companionship and above all…God’s Grace.”

Dr. Muthuri told our reporter when guiding him in a tour of the facility located at Kaaga suburb of Meru TownKenya.

”  I have been feeling that I should give back to the community by taking care of the elderly members of the society and hence the idea of coming up with this facility,” he explained.

Dr. Muthuri, who has been a Medical Doctor for 42 years(38 as a childspecialist), told Ambitious Kenya that for those of us who live far away from their aging relatives, it becomes difficult to give elderly parents or grand parents a homely environment we would wish to provide them with.

The home he has established has all the modern facilities that one would wish for his/her aging relative to use.
