Abstract

This paper examines disposition of the state, the family, and Nigerian citizens in general on support and care of persons 60years old and older, seeking to establish, as much as relevant to indigenous contextual values, a substitute initiative to the prototype of the Old People's Home. It discusses predetermined unfolding ego - personality peculiarities that mark out the elderly. It seeks remediation of the Old People's Home prototype by an adaptation in Elder Day Care Facility (EDCF), a care giving concept being suggested by the researcher for the Nigerian context. The paper is concluded by recommending the model of care giving, for adoption in Nigeria setting.
