Retirement is a key milestone in a senior citizens life. One is used to a set routine and active life pre-retirement, and it is often challenging to adjust into a post-retirement roles. Most adults were busy spending about 6-8 hours in office and suddenly they are faced with “what to do now?” This question is not limited to the working people but even homemakers who are not officially retired, also feel the gap once their domestic responsibilities reduce. Typically homemakers spent their time looking after the house, bringing up the kids, their education and providing meals for everyone etc. Once the kids are off to college or married their days too become unoccupied.
Aging is a time of transition. It happens naturally, but aging well takes careful planning. For many thousands of years, mankind has wondered when old age began. Beginning at the turn of the 20th century, life spans in India started steadily rising, from 32 years to 66.2 years. This is majorly due to availability of a vast array of drugs in the market.
