“Moving into The Golden Estate was one of the best decisions of my life. I have made many friends over here and I need not bother about my laundry, medication or security as all of it is being taken care by their dedicated and always smiling staff.”
“The Golden Estate exemplifies the word “Care”. The staff is invested in the well-being of each resident. They keep us engaged in constructive activities which is very rejuvenating. The environment is very warm and nurturing for all.”
“I was apprehensive about acclimatizing to conditions at a new place considering the attachment I had with my home. I felt that it would be very difficult for me to adjust at this age. But with every passing day this feels like the place I always wanted to be at.”
“My wife, Mrs. Sumedha Parashar and I have been staying at The Golden Estate (TGE), our new home, for over a year now. We are living here like a close-knit and friendly family. While the helpful, loving and caring TGE staff that takes good care of all our day to day needs, we have all the time to enjoy life in a jovial atmosphere of social bonhomie and spiritual bliss, free from all domestic worries.”
“The Golden Estate is great retirement home. I moved in along with my husband from the day it started operations. In fact, we are the first members of this ever growing family. It’s been such a wonderful experience. We have made lots of new friends, which would not have been possible while staying at our house.”
“I am highly impressed by the entire infrastructure and the facilities here, which will help many people like me. I wish I had known about the place sooner.”
