      Indian family model is changing The concept of a joint family system is giving way at a fast rate in India, as grown-up children of seniors move to another city or country for work or study. A study shows almost 15 million Indians aged above 60 live alone or with spouse only. In states like Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu alone, a quarter of the elderly population live in such all-elderly households. Eating alone has become a way of life for many of our seniors Often families came together for dinner shared their day, insights, laughter and love but the table got smaller and soon, mealtime is more of a chore than a pleasure for seniors living alone.

      Most of us are concerned about our parent’s safety and well-being, especially when we have no other choice but to stay away from them for work commitments. The majority of the elderly do not want to leave their home and move in with their children because of several reasons like familiarity and comforts of own home, emotional attachment, fear of being micromanaged by their children etc. Although some of them get used to living alone, it is a well-known fact that ageing brings a lot of challenges for them.

According to a recent  housing survey, “83% of older Indians want to stay in their current homes for the rest of their lives,” but other studies show that most homes are not designed to accommodate the needs of people over age 65. Most seniors live in homes that are more than 20 years old. As these buildings get older, they may become harder to live in or maintain. A house that was perfectly suitable for a senior at age 55, for example, may find the bathroom and kitchen quiet uncomfortable to use by the time they are 70. Seniors may face the following issues as they “age in place”. Toilets are suddenly too low putting stress on knee joints. Cabinets in kitchen are too high or difficult to use. No place to sit and work in kitchen. Steps are best avoided. This is especially if ...
