    I must thank Colonel Sridharan for sparing the services of the Covai team. Extremely devoted and sincere. Shows how much you care for them. Team Covai treated the job as if it was their own flat, checking of the progress almost daily besides dozens of calls to me! Also to mention, everyone worked with a smile and 100% efficiency.
  • Mr.Umanath (Resident)

    Team CovaiCare have a tough challenge ahead at Covai Chinmayam. How are you going to match the quality of food and the service with a smile we get at the "Retreat" in Covai S3 Senior Care Centre?! We just got back from lunch; I must say, every item in the menu this afternoon was simply superb; you don't know what you missed - today is not an exception. Most of the days the food has been very good - especially the soup every night is something we look forward to.

    It was very nice to see "வரலாறு காணாத” number of talented residents participating in the cultural programme held on Monday, 25th September 2017, as part of Navarathri celebrations in CovaiCare S3.  And surprisingly, many men also participated and surprised one and all with beautiful rendition of classical and movie (both Tamil and Hindi) songs.

    A big hand to all of them.

    Navarathri Utsav at CovaiCare S3

    The Bharathanatyam performance by Smt. Shara Sivithkumar on Thursday, the first day of Navarathri evenings this year, was in more than one sense, thoroughly enjoyable. The performance of the talented artist can be described in several words. Simply put, it was excellent!

There is a great calmness and a sense of belonging among the residents. They feel proud to be in this beautiful place. The staff and the residents are always eager to render assistance and support to their fellow residents.

    Colonel, you have established a solid foundation for the Covai S3 Senior Care Centre to live happily, peacefully, and thrive and prosper for years to come.

  • Mr.Varadarajan PV (Resident)

    We are staying in this community from July 2006 and have been eating at the Retreat for most of the time and we never ever had any problem after eating the food. The Doctor who was interacting with each one of the 27 odd residents said that the place, food and atmosphere in the Retirement Community will take care of your health.

    We keep telling all our friends and relatives or even visitors to this community during our conversation that food served here is absolutely safe and good.

  • Mr.Nambi Kalakad (Resident)

    Nearly a week ago I had an emergency and prompt help arrived from the staff and I was lifted up and put into my bed. We could immediately get a full time attender as well as a wheel chair.

    I don't find enough words to express my gratitude to all involved. The family spirit is excellent if at all it needed to be brought to light every now and then!

  • Mr.Venkata Sukuntha (Resident)

    This is yet another incident when CovaiCare jump into action when someone/anyone suddenly needs urgent attention and help. This kind of support gives a lot of mental and psychological confidence not only to the senior residents, but also to their children who are in different corners of globe, that immediate help and attention is available.

    The care and concern of the co-residents which give a morale boost, also is greatly appreciated.

  • Ms.Jaya Narayan (Resident)

    This is so reassuring to me - sitting at such a far away distance from my loved one. I know that team at CovaiCare is providing the best elder care with speed and affection. Thank you everyone. More power to all of you.
