Abstract: ABSTRACT Ageing, the gradual but continuing process of natural change, begins in early adulthood. At the biological level, ageing results from the impact of a variety of cellular damage over time, leading to a gradual decrease in physical and mental capacity and a growing risk of disease; though these changes are only loosely associated with a person's age in years. This study is an analysis in order to understand the issues and concerns associated with advanced ageing among selected senior citizen. Purposefully identified 100 elderly persons categorized into ‘Young-Old’, ‘Middle-Old’ and ‘Old-Old’ age groups from three prominent districts’ viz. Ernakulam, Thrissur and Kottayam districts of Kerala, India were subjected to in depth interviews based on the objectives set. Visual and auditory problems occurred in all age groups, but other sensory organ problems were minimal. Lifestyle-related diseases are common to all age groups, and issues with heart, blood pressure, arthritis, and insomnia have also occurred to varying degrees. The rapid increase in memory loss and immobility was also a concern for some, but the prevalence of mineral and vitamin deficiencies was negligible. The subjects rated their health and except the `Old-old` other two categories were satisfied with their present health conditions. The data was not supportive of the self-perception of the health by the elderly, revealing that except in a few areas, most of the physical and biological issues of the selected elderly increased with advancing age. It was considered essential to create an awareness among the elderly and their caregivers regarding health and nutritional requirements and its management strategies.
