My heart grieved when I read the other day a news item that more than 2/3rd of the elderly are being ignore din their twilight years.They are isolated by their own children and are expecting loneliness in their present lives.Most of them say that they are not being respected or given good treatment by their family or society and they are being discriminated against in their old age.Majority of elderly attributed their loneliness to no or little interaction with the family members .With fast changing sociology -economic scenarios ,growing nuclear families and changing value systems ,the need of the elderly have also changed ..The most common problems that the elderly face are -marginalization ,lack of love and affection ,little or no access to medicines ,finding it difficult to secure their life and property .
