Abstract

The authors examine the health status and labor force participation of and support systems for the elderly in developing countries in east, Southeast, and south Asia and compare them with Western norms. They find that "there are numerous psychological and emotional elements involved in institutionalizing support for the elderly, and the marked differences in social and cultural factors between the Asian countries and Western industrialized nations make it difficult for the former to use...old-age support systems prevailing in the latter as a model."
