Studies show that after retirement, urban retirees tend to withdraw from regular activities other than household chores. This cuts off links with the outside world and in these days of nuclear families, they soon begin to experience isolation and loneliness. Additionally, there are problems of shrinking incomes post-retirement, consequently reduced consumption, lack of assistance in performing outdoor chores, lack of peer group companionship, avenues for intellectual stimulation, lack of available paid and unpaid occupations and most importantly the loneliness of old age. If not corrected in time, such situations can often led to depression and serious medical problems among the elderly.
