Subject Position, Elderly, Family, Decision Making
 
Description Previously the elderly had authoritarian role in familial decision making process. Now it depends on many associated factors. This study explored the position of the rural elderly in familial decision making process. Mixed approach has been given priority. Data have been collected from primary and secondary sources. The study found that position of elderly in familial decision making process is unsatisfactory. That is, position as head of the family, involvement in buying and selling something, dependency on their sons in receiving treatment, invitation of relatives in different socio-religious occasions, taking part in rural arbitration, taking part in resolving familial disputes, influencing in election, compelling members to do work according to wishes etc. are not satisfactory. This study may help the academicians to conduct more empirical studies to understand this crucial reality and help the policy makers to take appropriate policy for the welfare of the elderly.
