The life expectancy of Indian population has increased from 32 years to more than 52 years (Government of India 1982). This has been largely achieved by improved health services for the people, specially for the mothers and children and by control of major communicable diseases. This has brought to the fore-front the social, medical and psychological problems of the aged people. In India, 5.97% of the population is 60 years and above (Census 1971). Not many studies have been done highlighting the health and social problems of this group of population.
