Health services to elderly people are very crucial since these people have unique diseases which need special doctor and special treatment.
The objective was to study awareness of the respondents, accessibility and utilization of the health services rendered to elderly people.
On Demographic, a majority 88% of the elderly respondents were not covered by Health Insurance scheme.
On the awareness, 67% of the elder respondents appeared not to know about National Ageing Policy.
