This book seeks to improve the quality of life of the elderly by means of policy suggestions that can be implemented by the government.
Caring for the Elderly deals with aspects of social gerontology in the context of India. It focuses on managing various issues confronting the elderly today and the remedial measures that can be taken by care givers and society at large. Contributions from eminent scholars throw light on important concepts, such as population ageing and its associated impacts. In a rapidly changing world, there is a need to discuss issues related to the elderly population and their health and well-being in the social and economic context.
Scholars and researchers of gerontology, anthropology, policy studies will find this book useful.
