Health and well being of the elderly are found to be affected by many interwoven aspects of their social and physical Environment. Understanding the health study of elderly and the factors associated with it is important, as it helps to evolve suitable measures to improve the health condition of the elderly. Dr. S. Siva Raju has adopted a medico-sociological approach in this study, in which both the subjective perspective of the elderly and the professional perspective of a qualified medical practitioner forms the basis in assessing the health status of the elderly. The study is based on the field investigation of 300 elderly (with an equal proportion of men and women) belonging to three class categories - poor, middle income group and well-to-do, in 13 localities of Mumbai. The findings of the study showed that the influence of factors like, educational status, economic status, age, marital status, perception on living status, addictions, degree of feeling idle, anxieties and worries, type of health centre visited and whether or not taking medicines, on both the perceived and actual health status of the elderly is significant and vary considerably across and sexes of the elderly. The findings are unique in many respects and should have far-reaching, theoretical, methodological, policy and programme implications in the programmes meant to improve the quality of life of the elderly.
