A Divine Home for Mentally Challenged
Beru Matimand Pratishthan provides care and maintenance for the mentally challenged persons, bedridden patients and the aging.
The Pratishthan is registered is managed by the trustees who are none other than the parents of the mentally retarded offspring. This Institute is their own brainchild and patients are treated as if they were their own. Every effort is made to keep the inmates in maximum comfort, with all available amenities and medical care, perhaps better than what can be provided at their homes. We are situated over a lease hold land of a little over 2 acres. Over the period, we have a built up of 1,500 sq. ft. accommodation. This was done in due course as was financially viable.
Mentally challenged person are totally neglected by the society in which they live. Mental Challenge is a permanent handicap and such persons never return to normalcy. Happiness of any family, having mentally challenged person is totally shattered. Such person needs permanent assistance and help as long as he lives. He is permanently dependent in his lifetime. Parents of such persons are worried during their lifetime about the future after their demise.
Having started an institution for the mentally challenged persons, we started thinking about the problems of the families having aging, old persons and physically handicapped persons, with incurable diseases.
A small family can not cope with a bed-ridden patient. It requires constant medical attention, nursing and other physical assistance in every walk of life. Can they economically afford to employ two or three persons round the clock to look after such a patient.
Late Shri S.P. Beru, Founder & Ex-Chairman had conceived a dream of building an Pratishthan for the mentally challenged person which would be an ideal HOME AWAY FROM HOME. This has resulted in the establishment of Beru Matimand Pratishthan at Village Rahtoli, Barvi Dam Road, Badlapur (West), Tal: Ambernath, Dist. Thane, Maharashtra, India.
