Abstract

The paper highlights existing elderly policies and implementation in India. Along with elderly policies, the paper also attempts to comprehend various senior citizens’ community living models in India and other countries. Following the noble ideas of United Nations Principles for Older Persons, the paper aims to suggest housing facilities that may promote independence among senior citizens to take their own decisions, social participation, access to the educational, cultural, spiritual, and recreational resources of society, and a dignified living free from exploitation and physical or mental abuse. Thus, the paper proposes the most suitable community living model for senior citizens in India. The model highlights the provision of economical living space added with assisted and accessible features like 24 × 7 medical care, physiotherapy, yoga camps, and other recreational activities for emotional support and abatement of loneliness.
