  • Product Description
 

In this era of rapid demographic and social changes in Ghana, it becomes imperative to carry out a study to access how changes in social institutions such as the extended family system as a result of migration is impacting on the quality of life of the ever-growing older population in Ghana. This book therefore focuses on bringing to the fore the impact of rural-urban migration on the quality of life of older people in Ghana using Nsuta-Atonsu as a case study. A combination of Qualitative and quantitative research methodologies were used to delve into the following issues: whether or not migrant children continue to support older people in meeting their food, healthcare and housing needs; the informal social support systems available to older people in Ghana; the economic activities engaged in by the aged to support themselves; the existing government policies and programmes for the aged and finally, the factors responsible for rural to urban migration in Ghana.
