Abstract
Aging is a natural phenomenon. The impact of socio economic pressures has constrained to change life styles. Pakistan is no exception. More and more people demanding independent family units have been forced to rearrange family structures, therefore, joint family system is becoming unpopular. Work demands, transfers and posting and relocation have contributed to this phenomenon. On the other hand, under present socio economic conditions, in developing countries, family support is diminishing. The government welfare systems are almost non existent. The destitute elderly have no support to bank upon. Through this study we have examined the problems of elderly in Pakistan and also analyzed the government and other initiatives taken towards redressal of these problems.
