Keywords:Behavioral changes, Cognitive decline, Counseling, Elderly, Psychological well-being
An individual’s behavior is impacted by a complex interaction of factors such as cognitive impairment, physical and mental health, past habits, personality, and environment. The cognitive decline means that your brain does not work as well as it used to. This study aimed to examine behavioral problems and cognitive decline among the elderly. The research information was gathered using multistage random sampling from various locations of Lucknow city (U.P). A total of 100 elderly were selected for conducting the present study comprising elderly belonging to different ages and both gender. A general information sheet was developed to collect the general information of the respondents. A Revised Memory and Behavioral Checklist scale developed by Teri, 1992, was used to assess the behavioral problems among the elderly. Females were found to have severe cognitive decline and behavioral problems compared to male respondents. Cooperation from family members and counseling sessions may prove beneficial in improving the overall cognitive health of female respondents.
