Abstract

Old age is the closing period of life span. It is an inevitable phenomenon in all biological species. In this stage the living arrangement is very important in terms of providing support for the elderly and in general it guarantees their well being. In India where the family has an obligation to take care of the elderly is no more entrusted to serve them. The younger generation would like to be separated and expected to live away from the elderly and migrates towards cities and sometimes to abroad. Under this situation the elderly would be deserted or sometimes institutionalized. In this situation it is very essential to understand their problems that they have come across in their life. Hence the study was conducted at Nirashritara Parihara Kendra, Mysore. The present study tried to understand the problems of the elderly and the reasons for institutionalization of the elderly.
