What does it mean to be an elderly person in kenya.Chapter four of the constitution of Kenya,article 57 (a),(b),(c),(d). recognizes the rights of older, members ofthe society to;
- Fully participate in the affair of society, pursue their personal developments , live in dignity & respect be free from abuse and receive reasonable care and assistance from their family and state.
- Every kenyan adult who founds a family expects that in old age his children will take care of his needs. Banking on ones children is practice no longer tenable due to globalization, migration and relocation in search of employment and livehood.This children are not able to assist their parents at older age.
- An elderly person in Kenya is faced with many challenges; firstly, one will have retired from employment or business, if fortunate, they will live on their retirement savings, but majority of elderly are living in abject poverty.This lead us to nurse the idea of a home to provide their basic necessities.
