First of all under the Hindu Adoptions and Maintenance Act - a major person >15 years - cannot be adopted unless the custom allows/permits. 

If it does - then on the date of adoption all ties with the natural family get cut - and ties are established in the adoptive family - with all benefits accruing.

I feel they will get all facilities as dependent parents (if they do not have a minimum prescribed income limit). Only thing, you have to do is to declare them as your dependents to HR dept of your company. Let them say no, giving the reasons.
