Abstract :

The geriatric population has increased dramatically during the past 100 years. If the current trend continues, the number of persons aged 65 or older will more than double during the next 30 years. As a result, we need to understand the needs and requirements, problems faced by these people, resources available and shortcomings. The geriatric people under go more strain both physically and psychologically. So the government and NGO has to play a vital role, since they were the key people providing the needs and requirements of the elderly. An attempt is made in this paper to understand the psycho social problems faced by the elderly.
