The places for the elderly to reside, rest, be taken care of and live are the elderly homes. For the elderly, living at an elderly home should mean spending time with peers, being close to medical and health services and being away from loneliness and depression. If the physical as well as psychological needs of elderly do not meet, it can create the problems and elderly may suffer from physical and psychological health problems.
