Startup for elderly to launch service in Kochi | Kochi News


KOCHI: Alserv, a tech startup focused on non-real estate based services for elderly people, has announced its foray into Kochi.
The startup founded in January 2020 was primarily offering its services in Chennai and this is the first phase of expansion.
Currently, over 750 families are benefitting the home care services provided by Alserv. Some of the key services are safety and security, housekeeping and maintenance, food and catering, healthcare and medical and concierge.
Alserv will be offering home healthcare & maintenance, sanitisation and cleaning services and pest control services in Kochi for now owing to Covid-19 lockdown restrictions. Once, the lockdown restrictions are eased, all their services will be offered in Kochi.
The startup has collaborated with over 20+ verified, trusted vendors in Kochi.
During the Covid-19, Alserv’s subscribers increased by 500%. Amidst the pandemic, Alserv had launched various Covid relief initiatives for its customers. These initiatives helped over 300 subscribers.
Speaking about the first-phase of expansion, Jagadish Ramamoorthy, co-founder & director of Alserv, said: “According to a recent study by national statistics office, Kerala has the highest population of elderly (16.5%) in India. There are about 15,000 to 20,000 retirement homes in India today indicating a wide chasm between the aging population and the number of available homes,” he said.
“Furthermore, seniors feel that they don’t have a viable alternative to these distant, investment-heavy communities. With Alserv, everything can be availed at home at a more affordable cost. In fact, we even provide services that are not available in these communities. Our mission is to ensure that seniors are not displaced from their familiar lifestyle and able to enjoy a full life,” he said.
“During the pandemic, we received several requests for Alserv’s services to be launched in Kochi. We are excited to launch in Kochi and aim to secure 500 plus families in Kochi by 2022. We will also be launching our services in other cities of Kerala and in other states soon,” he added.
