Abstract

The demographic shift from high fertility to low mortality naturally leads to population aging. Global ageing, the success story of the 21st century has been made possible by advancements in medicine, socioeconomic development, and public health initiatives. This paper explores the demographic dynamics of the senior citizen in Nepal and their roles for developing the society and the country as a whole. Elderly people are not only the burdens and beneficiaries but also the assets of society, repository of boundless knowledge, and skills. The seniors play a role of counselor, care taker, main source of ethical instruction, and source of income. Moreover, they are living history and socio cultural transformer.
