Abstract

Old age is defined as age of retirement that is 60 years and above. Improvement of health care technology has resulted in increased life expectancy – In India the elderly constitute about 7 percent of the total population and by 2016 the number is likely to increase to 10 percent. The problem of elderly is confined not only to their increasing numbers, but also includes mental stress and physical incapability felt by them. The scenario is changing and creating its impact on elderly. According to National sample survey organization, 367% of 70 million elderly want to shift to old homes because they can’t manage alone. For this study we have collected five hundred and forty Rural and Urban male and female elderly under the age group of 60-74, 75-84 and 85 & above were randomly selected from Muzaffarpur District. Data was collected through exploratory and personal interview methods. Personal information schedule was used to elicit auxiliary information of the subjects regarding demographic variables. Old-age Adjustment Inventory Scale by Hussain and Kaur (1995) was employed to assess the adjustment pattern of rural and urban aged males. To explore the family members attitude towards elderly, Attitudes toward old people scale by Kogan (1993) was used. Socio Economic Status Scale by Aggarwal et al. (2005) was employed to assess the SES of the family. Differential design was used to compare the adjustment pattern among rural and urban elderly and correlation research design was employed to know the relationship between family members attitude towards elderly and adjustment pattern among rural and urban elderly.
