In the times of India today, there is a nice article on home delivered food for the elderly.  An excerpt from the article is given below.  Follow the link at the end to read the entire article.

“One person asked me why I didn’t provide food for older people,” Kripa says. “That made me feel guilty.” She now delivers lunch to suit the palates of seniors. “We now have clients aged between 60 and 85,” she says.

In a city with a large population of the grey and greying, many of whom don’t live with their children, demand is on the rise for home-cooked food.
