Abstract

The study was carried out in Dharwad district, Karnataka with a sample of 220 elderly persons.
The results revealed a positive and significant relationship between family solidarity and life
satisfaction of the elderly i.e good family solidarity improved the life satisfaction of the elderly
and poor family solidarity reduced the life satisfaction of the elderly. Therefore it is evident from
the study that amongst all the support, it is the support from the family i.e family solidarity that
keeps a person satisfied and contented in life.
