    With no place to go and all hopes lost, the elderly have to resort to old age homes, which do not guarantee first class treatment.

The elderly are a heterogeneous group who are affected by both health and non health factors. The latter are largely social factors related to health that contribute to social problems faced by the elderly. This paper addresses these before looking at the care qf the elderly.

Old age is a period of physical deterioration and social alienation in some cases, loss of spouse, friends, Job, property and physical appearance. In old age physical strength deteriorates, mental stability diminishes, financial power becomes bleak and eye sight suffers a setback.

The book Medical care of older persons in residential aged care facilities by The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners is an excellent resource and aims to provide general practitioners, and other health professionals including residential aged care nurses, with a resource for delivering quality health care in residential aged care.

medical facilities in the village and poor economic conditions might be responsible for the low health status of the villagers (Rao et al.,).
