OLD PEOPLE: 

OLD PEOPLE

PowerPoint Presentation: 

An old person does not have the physical ability of a young person. Walking can be an effort. Crossing a road can be impossible without assistance. On many occasions I have come across old men and old women who just could not cross a busy road that had no pedestrian crossing. No driver stopped for them.

PowerPoint Presentation: 

It is possible that they may be absorbed as a kind of development (similar to adolescence) for a new future being an elder of the community? Aging is not a distasteful experience and disagree with the lay belief that ageing is a negative process because it leads to old age and its consequent physical, mental, social and economic deterioration.

PowerPoint Presentation: 

Old age is a stage of life, where one needs to learn certain things afresh and get hold of new skills, mind-sets and socialization norms. Old age has its delights, which, though different, are not less than the ecstasies of youth. The lens we presented here gives you some useful information. It's useful to our senior citizens and who take care of them.

PowerPoint Presentation: 

It is strange no one expects to grow old but everyone expects to live long. Old age beheld as an compulsory, abhorrent, problem- derided stage of life that we constrained to live, marking time until our concluding exit from life itself.

Their physical Ability: 

Their physical Ability An old person does not have the physical ability of a young person. Walking can be an effort. Crossing a road can be impossible without assistance. On many occasions I have come across old men and old women who just could not cross a busy road that had no pedestrian crossing. No driver stopped for them. So these old folks had to wait patiently until a kind soul happened along to lead them across. I have helped a number of them. Some of them were very grateful but some simply cursed the traffic. Whatever their attitudes, they were better off staying at home.

PowerPoint Presentation: 

It is common to hear of old people being knocked down by vehicles on the roads. They just cannot handle the traffic anymore. This busy world is certainly not kind to old folks. Crossing a road is just one problem they encounter, getting onto a bus is another. The old person is usually the last to get on, if he manages. I have seen a bus conductor telling an old man to wait for the next bus because his bus was full. If the old man does get on, the likelihood is that he will have to stand, which does no good for his old bones. Rarely does anyone give up his seat for an old man, or woman.

PowerPoint Presentation: 

We should take care of old peoples

LEFT ALONE: 

LEFT ALONE In the old days, most people did not go every far from their birthplace and thus families usually stayed together. The family unit is strong and practical. Today the family unit is breaking apart as young men and women travel widely in search of better jobs. So the chances are that the old folks will be left alone and neglected. Sometimes they are not wanted by their children at all. The luckier ones may have a child or two staying with them. The less fortunate ones may have to pine their lives away in an old folks’ home or in their now empty house that once was filled with the sound of children’s laughter. This neglect is a very real problem in our society and it is what the old dread most – being wanted and uncared for in the time of need.

OLD AGE PROBLEMS: 

OLD AGE PROBLEMS

PowerPoint Presentation: 

Old age may bring on a need of mental sharpness. This can take place because of physical weakness. Deserted mind, especially God almighty's word abandoned, there will be a breakdown of the attitude. There is an embarrassment in old age to life from the viewpoint of success standards. Someone looks back and views life as a breakdown. Maybe he set ambitions, and now he is old and never understood the goals. There is an enormous danger of disenchantment. There is a leaning for great augment in mental attitude signs in old age, with stress on criticism and judgment. All these overlooked in youth; it is terrible on elderly.

Lack of Self-confidence: 

Lack of Self-confidence There is habitually a lack of self-confidence in old age, particularly if the old people can't take care of themselves monetarily. Their children are in the chief of their lives and repeatedly the children's plans do not include them. Old age may bring a lack of ability to concentrate, forgetfulness, inability to speak, to hear, to see etc. So the old individual gets used to sitting in a chair as pensiveness, vegetating, saying nothing.

Personality Disorder (Old Age Personality Problems) : 

Personality Disorder ( Old Age Personality Problems) Personality disorders can appear at any time, including old age. Approximately 10% of older adults living at the house may have a personality disorder . This number is even higher among older adults living in nursing/old age homes. Old age personality problems are involving annoyance with self. The severe inferiority complex is with the overstated way of compensating.

PowerPoint Presentation: 

Personality problems concerning the world at large are likely to be found in the never-do-wells, the alcoholics, and a person with very shallow personalities. The great need of this person is the fulfillment enjoyed from the hard work done. Devoid of this, they can experience very little real fulfillment or satisfaction in life, and their readjustment is not easy. Their need to do extremely well in something is very great indeed.

Mental Illness: 

Mental Illness Many seniors are battling mental illness. More than a few factors can lead the elderly on the path to anxiety and depression. Chronic pain, isolation, limited mobility and grief are a handful of the best possible variables - and is the undeniable fact that seniors are actually told to do "keep a stiff upper lip." Pam Edwards of Capital Mental well-being says the stigma for seniors might be larger than newer generations have been inspired to point out their feelings.

A Sense of Helpless Despair : 

A Sense of Helpless Despair Every so often one is not quite so lucky and then the days are longer and emptier. It is lamentable but whenever we think of senescence, what automatically come to mind are visions of solitude and neglect. And if we integrate to these failing health and illness the picture becomes filled with a sense of helpless despair.

Health Problems Minor Ailments and Major Diseases : 

Health Problems Minor Ailments and Major Diseases To make things worse, old age also means an old and failing body which will simply not cooperate and lets one down ever so often. Even if one does not become sans eyes, sans teeth, sans everything right away, one does begin to slow down physically. Having rendered service for a lifetime, the organs and senses seem to stutter, gasp, choke and wheeze before finally quitting. Minor ailments and major diseases rear their heads and waking hours are preoccupied with symptoms and pills, diets and therapies. Visits to the doctor become routine as, for the first time, even for those who had been conscientious all along, health and thoughts of impending mortality assume paramount importance.

Old Age - Natural changes : 

Old Age - Natural changes Old age can reason, along with other things: ♠ Hair loss ♠ Change of hair color to gray or white ♠ Wrinkles and Liver spots on the skin. ♠ Agility and Slower reaction times ♠ Reduced ability to clear thinking. ♠ Lessened hearing ♠ Diminished eyesight ♠ Difficulty recalling memories ♠ Lessening or termination of sex, sometimes because of physical symptoms such as erectile dysfunction in men, but often simply a decline in libido. ♠ Greater weakness to bone diseases such as osteoarthritis.

PowerPoint Presentation: 

The complete life, the perfect pattern, includes old age as well as youth and maturity. The beauty of the morning and the radiance of noon are good, but it would be a very silly person who drew the curtains and turned on the light in order to shut out the tranquility of the evening. Old age has its pleasures, which, though different, are not less than the pleasures of youth.

Eye Problems: 

Eye Problems As with other parts of the body, the eyes commence to undergo alters as they age. In fact, vision problems are one of the initial signs of ageing. On the other hand, you can decrease the effect of age-related eyesight problems and boost your overall health in general by keeping track of changes that take place in your vision, making sure your eyes are sheltered from possible injury, eating nutritious foods and seeing an eye specialist on a regular basis.

Joint Pains: 

Joint Pains One of the most familiar problems faced by elderly people is joint pain. There are of course several types of problems that cause normal joint pain in "old" people and "normal" people alike. Bursitis, tendinitis , various types of arthritis, and other complaints, can be the cause of a person's aching joints.

(Year : 2011) Human Rights & Status of Older Women (July 2011) Today old women have restricted social interaction, limited earning possibilities, several medical complications, emotional isolation (in large number of cases even from their own children), very limited knowledge or awareness of their legal rights and natural reluctance to seek justice. Agewell Study on Human Rights of Older Persons (April 2011) Ironically, in India older generations are not aware of their human rights due to high prevalence of illiteracy and lack of awareness. On the other hand, due to comparatively high physical as well as psychological vulnerability their cries for help remain within four-walls, that’s why only a few cases of violation of human rights of elderly come out. Ever-increasing numbers of distress calls from older persons clearly indicate disturbing condition of Human Rights of Older Persons in India.
