THE VISIONARY LEADER BEHIND COVAICARE:

Colonel A Sridharan, VSM after retiring from the army in 1995, forayed into real estate development business in Coimbatore and in 2001 launched Covai Property Centre (India) Private Limited (now popularly known as Covai).

The seamless transition of Covai Property Centre to CovaiCare® has been made possible mainly because of the visionary leadership of Colonel. His foresight is proved by the fact that the retirement community he developed way back in 2004 received a Platinum rating by IGBC (Indian Green Building Council) in 2018 becoming India’s first retirement community to get the Platinum rating.

Colonel’s passionate compassion for Senior Care has lead him to develop the world’s first and unique model wherein senior citizens with special children (PsWD) can live in select Covai Senior Care Centres along with their child (adult) and after their time, the child will be taken care of by CovaiCare which would form a Trust.

He is also the author of the book ‘Active Life’ for Senior Citizens and contributes articles on a variety of subjects on newspapers as well as on the internet.
