Elderly care focuses on the elderly’s personal and social needs, including help with health care and daily activities. The elderly desire to age with dignity. Therefore, there is a need for customisation of activities, housing, training of employees and services to suit the specific needs of the elderly. A significant percentage of elderly care worldwide falls under the informal or unpaid market segment.

Ageing is inevitable and affects all families. Adults imagining their parents as elderly might not give the right image of how their ageing is bound to affect them. This is more so true if parents are already aged, but still healthy and strong enough to care for themselves. Adults might not get a good sense of the concerns or dramatic changes that often occur when aged parents become dependent.

However, a time comes when the impact of parents’ ageing becomes apparent, hence the need for long-term care. As people age, they experience a decline in mental and physical vitality. As a result, the aged experience visible, drastic changes in standard of life, appearance and even emotional wellbeing.
