  1. Socio-demographic characteristics and health status of urban thai elderly.

    Article - En anglais

    Socio-demographic and health status of 205 elderly aged 60-90 years who attended a special clinic for the elderly at Rajvithi Hospital were investigated.

    All of the subjects had no major complaints and seemed to be apparently healthy.

    Socio-economic situation, life-style pattern and other health related information was assessed.

    Nearly all of the elderly lived with their relatives.

    Quite a high number of the females had never attended school.

    Almost 60% of the elderly had no regular income.

    The health situation of the individuals under investigation seemed to be satisfactory.

    The majority did not smoke and did not drink alcohol.

    There are indications that in the future more of the elderly population will stay alone and will face economical problems because of the absence of general social security scheme for Thailand.
