Age Care Foundation's endeavour to make available geriatric and palliative health care services to the elderly and the seriosly ill received a big fillip when the Free Polio Surgical and Research Foundation, Visakhapatnam provided one acre of land in Visakhapatnam to establish and run a fully integrated center for Geriatric and Palliative Care, the first of its kind in Andhra Pradesh. This upcoming project will open new vistas of care and scale up Age Care Foundation's services manyfold. 

The bhoomipooja for the project was performed on 7th Aug 2022 and construction started in Dec 2022. The project work is nearing completion and on commissioning of the facility will be a unique health care center in the state of Andhra Pradesh.

All efforts are being made to start services from the facility in 2024.
