IRAIYANBU ILLAM is the sweet home of the CHELLIAHS, constructed in a posh residential area, called the Secretariat Colony, at the banks of the serene Retteri Lake in Kolathur of the Greater Chennai City. Here, THE TRUST OF CHELLIAHS (Regd.No. 83/2015) provides SAFE shelter to the elderly mothers, whose children live and work elsewhere. Mothers of NRIs who find it difficult to live alone in their homes in India are given preference by the elderly CHELLIAHS who themselves were once NRIs. IRAIYANBU ILLAM is SAFE. This means, elderly ladies coming from various family backgrounds live here in single or shared rooms or apartments, as an unique family in peace, that surpasses all our understanding. As the Tamil name IRAIYANBU denotes, the Love Divine or the Love of God is bestowed upon this family and hence the CHELLIAHS have been taking personal care of the inmates as their own parents and serve them as they serve God Almighty.
Whenever we stay outside of our relations and friends we give preference for safety and security on one side and facilities on the other side. The Secretariat Colony of Retteri – Kolathur, a posh and beautiful colony, situated very near to Perambur Railway station and Koyambedu Bus stand offers facilities of the Chennai City in a pleasant and peaceful environment of a natural lake called Retteri. The IRAIYANBU ILLAM is at the bank of Retteri, in a building of architectural excellence owned by the family of Chelliahs. It is being monitored round the clock by CCTV cameras, with an eye on security. It is true our loving parents may not ask for the love they have given us. Nevertheless, it is our duty to share our love and protect our parents when they are alone. Our IRAIYANBU ILLAM is filled with this spirit of LOVE – the most valuable gift of God and here we serve your parents as our own.
Iraiyanbu Home is open for:
1. Elderly women from all walks of life.
2. All working women.
3. Retired persons who wish to be alone.
4. Those who wish to stay away from their families.
5. Sisters, Spinsters, Separated women and all who seek for security.
