Although the population of Ghana is young and generally youthful, there is evidence of rapid increases in the size of the elderly cohort.
In a new photo sighted by Daily View Gh on social media, a rather elated Madam Elizabeth Yamoah brought out the child in her as she joined her JHS3 classmates to celebrate their successful completion of junior high school.
Unfortunately, the growth in the elderly proportion of the population is occurring at the same time traditional systems of protection and care for the aged are breaking down on account of urbanization, socioeconomic development, and globalization.
