Respect senior citizens, provide them with care
Support elders - abandoned, hungry & lonely
Every one of us is aging, a process that can’t be reversed. And with increasing age comes challenges in health and well-being - and the mental insecurity that it triggers. But no one should be penalised for growing old, or marginalised by society.
Unfortunately, with an increasing aging population, the breakdown of joint families in favour of nuclear ones and rapid urbanisation, this is exactly what is happening. In disadvantaged communities, where families struggle to make ends meet, sadly the older generation - seen as unproductive and a burden - pays the price and suffers abuse, neglect and abandonment.
Without a proper social security system in place, when the old and infirm are at their most vulnerable and dependent on others, studies show over 70% of senior citizens in India have faced abuse - verbal, physical, emotional and financial. They also live with deteriorating health conditions, with many requiring regular and crucial care that they are unable to afford. This is shameful in a country known for its high regard and respect for the elderly.
