ABSTRACT:
Old age is the last phase of human life cycle. It can also be said that old age is the second half of years. Old age should be regarded as normal, inevitable biological phenomenon. Old age is considered as second childhood, because both the aged and the child have to depend on others for many of their personal requirements. The major problems of old age could be devaluation in status and income, deteriorating health, retirement, dependency, fear of death and shock of growing old (Shivaraya B.2011). Elderly adults often feel neglected, useless; they feel that their lives have become meaningless. In this article, the reasons behind the meaninglessness in old age and the ways to find meaning at this half of years were highlighted.
