Nirmala Home for the Aged, Nashik, Mharashtra – 1973                                                                                               

The History of NIRMALA HOME FOR THE AGED commenced on 22nd April 1973, when Mother Aloysia along with the first batch of sisters arrived at Nashik to start the new apostolate of looking after the aged, who needed care and attention in the evening of their lives. A tiny cottage was blessed and the foundation stone was laid by Fr. Aloysius Fonseca, SJ for the new home.

The newly built home was inaugurated and blessed by His Lordship Rt. Rev. Dr. William Gomes the Bishop of Poona and by Mr. Padmanabhan IAS, Collector of Nashik District, on 2nd March 1975.

From 1973 to 1992 the community focused its attention on two apostolates, care for the aged and management of Kilbil St. Joseph’s School. In 1992, a convent was built in the school premises and on 26th April the sisters teaching in the school were shifted to their new residence.

The community sisters of Nirmala Home cater to the spiritual, mental, emotional and physical needs of the residents. Medical attention is rendered by doctors who visit them. Those who need hospitalization are taken care locally or taken to Holy Family Hospital, Bandra.

The residents of Nirmala Home for the Aged find a home away from home and actively participate in the programs conducted during the year.
Years of careful planning, constant effort, selfless and untiring work of the sisters resulted in the building up and smooth functioning of the home due to which the number of senior citizens seeking entry into Nirmala Home began to swell. The lack of rooms to accommodate required an extension of the building which was inaugurated and blessed on 25th March 1996 by Rt. Rev. Dr. Thomas Bhalerao, Bishop of Nashik.

This beautiful home is blessed to have number of good people like friends, benefactors, well-wishers and certain organizations who time and again visit and generously give, that others may enjoy a better life.

In this Home the mission of the Ursulines has given concrete expression to the compassionate love of Christ bringing comfort, strength, happiness and a shelter to the aged men and women without discrimination of caste and religion.
