Abstract

The family is culturally the best place for the elderly at their post retirement life in India. They prefer their living arrangement with children and grandchildren which is significant for happiness. But globalization and urbanization have brought changes in this cultural system with an effect of socio-economy and political condition. The elderly population ceases to be functional, they are considered as a ‘burden’ upon the family and ending up in old age home.
