India has over 82 million old people- a number which is higher than the total population of many countries in the world! A large number of them live in old age homes! Some of the facts about old age home say that there are only 354-400 listed old age homes in the country and only 300 of them are responding. A number of other NGOs and old age homes work, but the startling truth is that a lot of them don’t offer good services to the elderly. This is partially because non availability of the funds. Some of the old age homes are in such sorry state that a lot of elderly are malnourished and ill. The state of Kerala has highest number of Old Age Homes in India. An old age home fact reveals that most of these elderly were tortured and beaten before they were sent to live in old age homes. Can someone share more facts about old age homes in India?
