The nuclear family is considered to be the ‘traditional family’ which consists of parents as well as brothers and sisters. The trend of this kind of nuclear family in India was on the rise for some time. But nowadays, it has been observed that the children in the family when becoming an adult fight for their share in the property with their parents or with their in-laws, as a result of which the senior citizens are left behind alone. Most of the time, children also move out of the country and live independently with their other half and kids and the elder people are left out at their home, on their own. The aged people are very much dependent on their younger ones for several things at this point of life and particularly when it comes to their health, this separation in the family acts as an attack on them causing several psychological illnesses, for example, depression, loneliness and a number of other health conditions which are faced by them.
