Key questions:

1) What are the perceptions of elderly on the impact of their children’s migration on their health and wellbeing?

2) How do elderly manage care giving and receiving in migrant households through kin and non-kin care givers?

3) How the elderly in migrant households living with relatives differ from those elderly living on their own?
