|The challenge of caring for a growing number of elderly is yet to be faced squarely. As people grow older, especially in developing countries like India, they encounter several problems. Some are physical and obviously age related. Some are due to the social structure, break up of joint family system, poverty, loss of employment, widowhood.|
Some emotional problems like loss of self - esteem, lowered life satisfaction, dependence and depression, feeling of being ignored by family members . All sorts of abuses such as: mal- treatment and physically, vocally and mental torture etc.
Some problems are cognitive problems – onset of dementia and mental deterioration. Medicines or medical profession alone cannot provide solutions to all these problems. Nor do we have adequate professionals-physical or mental health professionals who can attend to the needs of elderly, especially of those requiring institutionalization or long term care within family or those who have disabilities.
Even those elderly who are not ‘sick’ or disabled do need help and guidance to live their life with dignity, with autonomy and in a disease free style. Hence it is necessary to build up a net work of support system or care system so that family and community together can create an age-friendly atmosphere so that senior citizens can live and die with dignity.
