Abstract:
Ageing is associated with progressive changes that lead to a decline in biological functions. These changes not only affect the functional ability but also the well-being. The aim of the present study is to assess the well-being of elderly living in rural and urban areas of Guntur district, Andhra Pradesh state between the age group 65-4 years. Purposive random sampling technique and snow ball technique were used to select the sample from both the rural and urban areas. The total sample comprised of 120 elderly people, (60 from urban and 60 from rural) of both the genders. Well-being Index developed by V.L. Chouhan & V. Sharma (2016) was used to assess the well-being of elderly. Results revealed that all respondents of both rural and urban areas had low levels of well-being and statistically significant mean differences were found for only physical well-being dimension at 0.05 level of significance.
