Empowerment and Disempowerment of the Olds

L. Thara Bhai (Author)

The volume calls for a deeper understanding of ageing in society. It begins with theories on gerontology and the way the aged can benefit from them. Based on a field study involving the elderly from different castes and religious groups in rural and urban areas, it points out that religion, community and institutional stay have a direct correlation with the empowerment and disempowerment process of the aged. Further, the process is related to one’s personality, social relations and foresight for advance planning. With case studies, it shows the need for empowering the aged. It is especially concerned with the family care and institutional care of the elderly.
