Problems and Rights of Senior Citizens in India
Keywords:Aging,, Senior citizens,, Problems and Challenges,, Rights of senior citizens.
Aging is an inevitable part of life and brings its own set of problems and challenges which may not be unique to the senior citizens but affect their life the most. In the Indian society, the family members used to be responsible for taking care of the senior citizens of the family and to help them get over the wide range of problems that they may face, ranging from psychological to physical ailments. But today’s changing family structure and the prevalence of nuclear families have exposed the elderly members of the family to physical, psychological and financial insecurity. Subsequently many laws have also been enacted and rights have been provided in order to protect the senior citizens from any possible harm that may be inflicted on them by their family members or otherwise. This study paper provides insights into the problems faced by senior citizens and their rights.
