Welcome to South Asian Behavioral Health and Training (SABH) Foundation Inc

A Non-Profit California Agency with goals to provide residential and mental health services to mentally & developmentally disabled, new immigrants and seniors.

Welcome to SABH

pictureSouth Asian Behavioral Health and Training (SABH) Foundation, is a non-profit agency registered in the State of California. It was founded by Dr. Harmesh Kumar, a licensed Clinical Neuropsychologist with 27 years experience. He has been helping the mainstream and South Asian communities for their psycho-social and emotional needs for many years. Dr. Kumar saw and listened to so many of our seniors and people with physical, developmental and mental disabilities and their families suffering in his clinical practice in the Bay Area and Central Valley over the years. However, they did not have much to look forward to as there are no psycho-social services available in their cultural and linguistic context. Therefore, Dr. Kumar accepted this challenge and now many good-hearted people have joined him.

 However, with the current economy and high joblessness rates there are many people from the mainstream who cannot afford to get the services they need. On top of that people with limited language skills and with different cultural background sometimes cannot access the services due to lack of knowledge about the available resources. People who came to this country on tourist visas and got sick here or are in line to get their green cards and legalization, they and their family members are at a disadvantage due to the current political and economic environment of the country. They mainly depend on their local communities and churches for help. The SABH Foundation is trying to help people with disabilities and our seniors who are not able to get the help they need due to their limited English language skills and lack of awareness that such services exist. They continue to suffer on their own and become more depressed and sometimes suicidal and not able to cope with their medical bills. Whenever, there are economic and other pressures on families, they can result in use of alcohol/drugs, some in domestic violence incidents and some deal by becoming depressed and ending their lives with suicide.

Dr. Harmesh Kumar

 

Services for Seniors

Our immediate goal is to establish our own South Asian Seniors' Independent, Assisted and Skilled Residential Care Facilities.

However, at this time we are collaborating with private agencies to get the affordable and culturally appropriate placement for South Asian Seniors and their family members. We want to make sure that they get the services in their cultural and liguistic context. Also we want to make sure that their religious and spiritual needs along with their activities of daily living are met effectively. It's as important to us as it is to you in making the connection between your and our family. At SABH Foundation Inc., we want to give our seniors and their families the choices they need to live well. Our residents and our staff come together to create an environment that enriches each individual's experience to ensure that they are living their best quality life. We want our residents to be active, healthy members of their community and SABH Foundation Inc. supports their independence, their character, and their lifestyle. To explore the lifestyle at the our partnering facilities, their locations and learn more online about our independent, assisted living and skilled nursing options.
