Abstract

Background of the study

Ageing is a universal phenomenon old age is not in itself a disease but is a normal part of the human life span. Ageing is normal, universal, progressive, irreversible process. It is an inevitable physiological phenomenon. The human life span follows a recognized pattern birth to death. Then there is a gradual deterioration in physical and mental abilities. As the ageing process progress mental capabilities such as memory and physical abilities further deteriorate. As the individual develops and matures socially and physically from birth through adolescence and after the age of 30years additional changes occur that reflects normal decline in all organ systems, then it is called senescence. This happens gradually throughout the body system reducing the viability of different body systems and increasing their vulnerability to disease.

Objectives

a) To assess the knowledge regarding old age health problems among the family members

b) To evaluate the effectiveness of planned teaching programme regarding old age health problems among the family members

c) To find out the association between pretest knowledge regarding old age health problems with selected socio demographic variables

Conceptual Frame Work

For the present study the conceptual frame work is used based on General systems theory by Ludwig Von Bertanlanffy.

Method

This was quasi experimental study with 80 subjects were selected through simple random sampling technique. One group pretest posttest design was used. Data was collected by means of structured interview schedule which was divided in to 2 sections (sociodemographic data and knowledge regarding care of selected old age health problems among family members). The reliability of the tool was established by Split Half method. The Karl Pearson’s coefficient of correlation r = 0.7999 Planned teaching programme on care of selected old age health problems was developed. After content validity of the tool was established by six experts. Data was analyzed by using descriptive and inferential statistical in terms of frequency, percentage, mean, standard deviation, student‘s test values.

Result

It was proved that there was increase in the knowledge level of family members after implementing planned teaching programme, thus planned teaching programme on care of selected old age health problems among family members was effective. Out of 80 subjects 42(52.50%) of subjects had inadequate, 31(38.75%) had satisfactory and 7(8.75%) had adequate knowledge regarding care of selected old age health problems before teaching programme (pretest). However, after teaching programme (posttest) about 21(26.25%) subjects had adequate knowledge and 37(46.25%) satisfactory knowledge, whereas 22(27.50%) had inadequate knowledge regarding care of selected old age health problems.

Conclusion
