Abstract
This study was an attempt to analyse the subjective well-being of the aged people at St Antony’s Home for the Aged, Kattur, Tiruchirappalli. A sample of fifty two respondents was selected by using simple random sampling method for this study. Subjective well-being inventory by Rup Nagpal and Helmut Sell (1985) was adopted to collect the data. The present study is descriptive in nature. Majority (64%) of the respondent’s subjective well-being was found to be low and 37% of the respondent’s subjective well-being was found to be high. Educational system should concentrate on moral values of relationships and family bonding. Old age homes for the destitute aged should be encouraged and Government should take measures to provide decent accommodation with medical facilities. Adoption of the aged people should be encouraged among elite groups, celebrities and capable youth, to promote care and responsibility.
