WHO ARE OLD AGE ORPHANS?

“Elder orphans or Old Age Orphan” are defined as “Aged, community-dwelling individuals who are socially and/or physically isolated, without an available known family member or designated surrogate or caregiver.” In layman’s terms, elder orphans are those who do not have close friends or family to help them with the challenges that come with age.

BETTER CARE FOR BETTER WORLD

YOU HAVE A GOOD LIFE, SOME OTHER DON’T.

These days, we are witnessing an enormous increase in orphanages and old age homes in our society. Both emotional and financial support is required to these people to live their life with happiness and peace. There are only a few reliable NGOs that provide assistance to old age orphanages. Financial assistance can help the NGOs to run these organizations with necessary resources and fulfilling the basic necessities of people in the old age orphanages.

When an older adult life alone or at a distance from adult children it can add stress to their decision-making on topics of health care, living expenses, and mobility. Growing older is hard enough even if the family lives nearby, but if a person has no one to count on for help with activities, it can become unhealthy and downright depressing.



STATISTICS

Elder people population

India is undergoing a demographic transition! While 8 percent of its population was recorded 60 years and above in 2011 Census, it is expected to increase its share to 12.5 percent and 20 percent by 2026 and 2050 respectively. With this kind of an aging scenario, there is pressure on all aspects of care for the older persons – be it financial, health or shelter. With the onset of the 21st century, the growing security of older persons in India is very visible.

Meanwhile, a 2015-16 AISCCON survey shows that 60 percent of elderly people living with their families face abuse and harassment, 66 percent are either 'very poor' or below the poverty line and 39 percent have been either abandoned or live alone.
