PROJECT TOPIC: AGEING IN CONTEMPORARY GHANA: A CASE STUDY OF THE AWUTU BREKU DISTRICT

Project Body:


ABSTRACT

Ageing in contemporary Ghana is not only an interesting research area but necessarily resonates with every human being. This is particularly so because ageing is a universal, inevitable and observable human occurrence. The concept of ageing and its dynamics react to changing circumstances in society. Research points to the fact that changing demographics impact on socio-economic situations and necessarily on different classes of society including the aged. International and national statistics portray an increasing proportion of the aged globally and Ghana in particular. Existing literature have examined various aspects of the subject matter. However, they hardly considered the multifaceted needs of older Ghanaians by examining the impact of social change especially on family structure on care giving patterns and the resultant changes in the lives of the elderly. This study, therefore, sought to fill this gap by exploring and documenting the lived- experiences, factors that enhanced sense of belonging and the support systems for the aged. In general, the study focused on identifying the challenges associated with ageing in contemporary Ghana. For practical purposes, a case study method was adopted to unearth the objectives of the study in Awutu Breku District of the Central Region of Ghana.
