The old and senior citizens, who have provided a great service to the society, feel neglected and unwanted at this stage of life. The declining physical strength and other geriatric ailments add to their problems. The Process of social change i.e. modernization, urbanization and technological changes have modified the value system and shifted the socio-economic priorities which have thrown the life on fast tracks and often left with no time for our senior citizens.
Life expectancy is steadily increasing, but cities are no longer safe nor friendly neighbors a certainty. Alternative housing for the aged is a practical lifestyle solution that developers are now ready to provide.
Elders have started walking out of their own home in search of a journey that promises peace, joy and celebration of life with a group of people who share the same boat of life (the wrecked one). However not may rather none of them receive it. A growing number of financially independent senior citizens now prefer to stay in retirement resorts instead of languishing in the quintessential old-age homes that they feel are “overcrowded” and “unsafe”.
