The centre will provide specialised geriatric care services including post-surgery and post-hospitalisation rehab care, and palliative care.

The geriatric care services market in India is about USD 20 Billion and is growing at a CAGR of 7%. About 11% of India’s population is above the age of 60. Report by UNFPA states that 16% of India’s population will be above 60 in a decade from now, making elderly care an

essential service that the country needs to take care of its ageing population. Chennai, with a large & growing senior population, holds immense potential in this emerging field with far and few specialised care providers. 

KITES Senior Care was established in 2016 by senior doctors and healthcare professionals. Over the years, it has established itself as a front-runner in the emerging field of geriatric care and is trusted by over 5,300 families. The new facility will be their fifth facility in India; after Bengaluru and Hyderabad. The brand has ambitious plans to expand its footprints in South India beyond these three cities.


The new Chennai centre enables families to avail world-class geriatric care for their seniors and elders, further strengthening the health delivery sector in the city, especially with regards to transitional and rehab care, palliative care and hospice, and geriatric home care. 

Rajagopal G, Founder and CEO of KITES Senior Care said, “India’s elderly population has witnessed a significant growth, rising from 104 million in 2011 to 138 million in 2021. This upward trend is projected to accelerate, with estimates suggesting that by 2050, our elderly population will triple, constituting 20% of our nation’s total populace. This demographic shift underscores the paramount importance of creating robust, comprehensive care systems tailored to their needs. While many developed countries have established ‘out of hospital’ geriatric care systems, India is just at the dawn of this transformative journey. This paradigm encompasses varied care avenues, from nursing homes and hospice facilities to memory care centres and home-based care – the latter of which has been gaining impressive traction in recent years. To ensure that we cater holistically to the needs of our senior citizens, a full-fledged implementation of all these care components is crucial. With the inauguration of Ahavaa KITES Senior Care Centre in Chennai, we’re marking yet another pivotal step in our commitment to serving India’s elderly with the care and dignity they rightfully deserve. We thank Mr Reji Abraham, Ms Kavya & Mr KAV Ramesh Kumar for their trust in us and giving us this opportunity to expand in Chennai.
