Disability among elderly rural villagers: report of a survey from Gonoshasthaya Kendra, Bangladesh
BMC Public Health, 06/08/2012Cherry N et al.
Disabled elderly residents were dependent on the family for help but, with family cohesiveness under threat from migration to the city, there is a pressing need for the development and critical evaluation of community–based interventions designed specifically for the elderly in poor rural societies. New approaches to training and practice will be needed to integrate such disability management into primary care.
