Gross self-neglect in old age.

Abstract

Most elderly, including those with physical or mental disability manage to maintain their standard of life, often owing to the support of their relatives and neighbours. Only a few let their self-care drop to alarmingly low level, thus causing public concern. Health workers, when asked to help, face medico-legal and moral dilemmas, some of which are explored.
