Survey on Elderly Persons in Kenya

Survey on Elderly Persons in Kenya
Most developed world countries define elderly persons as those who are at least 65 years of age. However this does not adapt well with the situation in Africa where old age is associated with the age at which one retires from employment and begins to receive pension. At the moment, there is no UN standard for elderly persons but it is generally agreed that those aged 60+ years are older persons.

In Kenya the elderly, who make up for about 5 percent of the country’s population, face a lot of problems that include loneliness, health problems, poverty, abuse, lack of social security, and neglect.
