Among the total elderly population, those who live in rural areas constitute 78 percent.Given the trend of population ageing in the country, the older population faces a number of problems and adjusts to them in varying degrees. These problems range from absence of ensured and sufficient income to support themselves and their dependents during ill health, absence of social security, loss of social role and recognition, to the non-availability of opportunities for creative use of free time. This research study on the quality of life and problems of elderly person at St. Antony’s oldage home, Kattur, Trichy shows that adapting to old age is dependent on several socio- economic, cultural and psychological facts. The reaserch show that continues research, modification of police and programme are required to make better life  of elderly.
