The Epoch Story
Epoch Elder Care was founded by Kabir Chadha in 2011 to meet the growing need for elderly care and services in India. Originally a Home Care provider with a special focus on companion care, psychological support & home management, Epoch offered services in Delhi-NCR, Mumbai and Pune to over 300 seniors.
With the course of time, our team realized that providing home care was not enough. Many seniors were in need of constant nursing care and supervision, and several had no local family support. In 2014, we decided to change our model and switch to residential care and thus Epoch Assisted Living came to life. In a short span of time, Epoch has grown to be an industry leader in both elder and dementia care and a brand that is trusted by families for the care of their loved one.
To provide holistic, person-centered care that enables seniors to have the highest quality of life.
To be India's leading elder care organization both in terms of the quality of our care, as well as the number of elderly we serve.

Kabir founded Epoch Elder Care in 2012. A graduate of Stanford University, Kabir had been working with McKinsey and Company for almost 4 years before he decided to move back to India in 2011. While living with his grandmother, he was struck by the tremendous gap in services for senior care in India and was inspired to devise a solution – and thus Epoch Elder Care came into being. Kabir is proud of the many accomplishments the team at Epoch has achieved and believes they are some of the most caring and passionate individuals. As an active member of the board, he strives to make Epoch India's leading senior living provider both in terms of quality of care and number of seniors served. Currently, Kabir works at Coursera, an educational technology company that is democratizing education for individuals. Kabir loves solving math and logic puzzles, but likes asking others to solve them even more.
