The agencies working for the welfare of the elderly in India are categorized broadly into : Old age homes, day care centres, senior citizens associations and associations for retired persons. Given such variety of organisations with varying levels of activity in the field of geriatric care, it was felt necessary to focus on various activities of these organisations. In this book Networking of Organisations Working for Care of Older Persons in Mumbai-Issues and Implications Dr. Siva Raju has focused on their role, coverage, nature of activities, strengths, inadequacies, future programmes, extent of interaction with other organisations and their readiness to associate with other similar organisations. Altogether 70 organisations were found to be functioning in the city of Mumbai and they were all covered in the study. The study has brought out factors like, duration of establishment, status of registration, availability of medical professionals, financial sources and number of beneficiaries which are found to significantly influence the perceived strengths, inadequacies. and readiness of the organisations for networking. Their influence is differentially noticed among the various categories of organisations under focus. The findings reveal the urgency on the part of all those involved in the networking of the organisations to channelise their efforts and strengthen the activities of the organisations working for the care of the elderly in the city, and are unique in many respects and should have far-reaching policy and programme implications in the promotion of programmes with the networking of organisations working for the care of the elderly. Printed Pages: 168.
