Maya CARE – The Next Best Thing to Family
The Maya CARE Community Interest Company (CIC) was conceived as a dream to assist senior citizens and persons with disabilities in activities that would offer them convenience, independence and happiness while continuing to live in their own homes or in assisted living. The dream is a movement propelled by a growing network of volunteers across the UK.
Maya CARE services are offered FREE of charge.
Maya CARE services are available across Milton Keynes and select areas of Cambridge and London.
Maya CARE provides assistance through 90-minute visits or audio/video calls helping senior citizens and people with disability with transactions or companionship.
Maya CARE DOES NOT provide emergency, nursing, cleaning or gardening services
How does Maya CARE work?
- Helpline telephone number and website/published email for senior citizens/people with disability to reach out to Maya CARE.
- The nature of the request is captured by the Maya CARE admin team.
- A suitable volunteer is identified (volunteers pre-register with Maya CARE) and need to submit standard documentation to demonstrate they are legally permitted to work with vulnerable adults.
- Maya CARE Admin introduces the volunteer to the person requesting the service.
- The volunteer visits and fulfils the requirement.
Since the inception of Maya CARE Foundation in India in 2009, our Founders Abhay Joshi and Manjiri Gokhale Joshi have funded the service through their personal income. Over 1500 senior citizens have benefitted from this service over the years supported by over 500 committed service associates and coordinators. More on Maya Care Foundation in India www.mayacare.org

As a senior citizen, going through the usual slowdown in life, it has made a big difference to me to have the company of volunteers so generously given. I have also had much practical help from them, in generally getting around in the city, whether for diversion or for necessity. The obvious recognition by Maya CARE, that a senior citizen does not necessarily have to be bed-ridden or incapacitated, in order to gain help and attention, and lead a pleasant, cheerful life - this is what makes Maya CARE deserving of its name.

I am thankful to Maya Care Community Interest Company for sending a buddy to my 87 yr old Father in law. The volunteer who visits us once a week or fortnight, chats with my father in law who has mild Alzheimer's and mobility restrictions. Through their regular conversations, he instilled confidence in him and convinced him to participate in activities and just be happier!
