Mrs Malathi K V, Prof Mrs Mary Minerva

Abstract


The World Health Organization Quality of Life group defined
quality of life as an individual's perception of their position in life
in the context of the culture and value systems in which they live
and in relation to their goals, expectations, standards and
concerns. One has to do with the growing number of elderly
people in society. Higher age often brings about health problems
14 and a decrease in functional capacity.
