The worldwide elderly population is on the rise,
necessitating a shift in focus towards addressing the
requirements of older individuals. The chains of
relationship between generations are known as
Intergenerational Relations. Due to the decreased birth
rate, increased life expectancy and increased migration
among family members for employment and education,
the situation of older adults in the family become worse.
They are more prone to loneliness, isolation and
depression. The time spent together among the family
members have been reduced in the present situation.

solidarity can contribute to their positive mental health.

between health status of an elderly, happiness and
intergenerational relationship among the elderly. The
study is a descriptive one. Simple Random Sampling is
used. Self-structured interview schedule has been used to
collect data. Based on the findings suggestions provided.
