Quick Overview
Indian-subcontinent is a home for 100 million elderly people above the age of 60 years at present. A dramatic change in demographic profile is expected in the next three decades. It is easier to recognise the expected social problems than to find practical solutions. An attempt is suggested through this book so that we can take care of the senior population with grace and dignity. This write up has been compiled by collating the observations made by the three authors belonging to three different generations. SM Tuli is an octogenarian having worked in government hospitals dealing with the medical issues of the senior citizens and their families. Neena Bhasin is mature in age, a medical doctor working in a charity health providing organisation. Punya Bhasin belongs to the growing generation and is a teacher of psychology for senior classes in a school. All the contributors have lived their life in generational families (four or three generations) living together under the same roof. SM Tuli has collated the observations regarding the problems and possible solutions while taking care of the seniors in the families. Since 2019, the unprecedented COVID-19 global pandemic leads to approximately 6 million human deaths in the world. Hopefully, the young surviving generations may be induced to appreciate the value of immunity, positive health, and empathy for the family, friends and the society in general.
