Abstract
      This paper  explores the vulnerability and sufferings of the old-age
people  of Bangladesh  in respect to health care, economic,  and  social
protections. The article presents an analytical and conceptual approach to the
socio-economic  status of old-aged people in Bangladesh while focusing on
the global context. The numbers of old-aged persons are increasing in the last
years due to decreasing mortality rate and increasing life expectancy of the
people as a result of improvement of the health sector in Bangladesh. Older
persons need food with nutrient, proper and regular healthcare, adequate and
comfortable living place, access to law, if necessary, proper recreation and
more  significantly the company of others which is very crucial in old age.
Development  of the so-called nucleus family in today's modern society, which
means  a family staying away from their parents, put the aged persons in very
miserable conditions in our society. The right to enjoyment of the basic rights
by  the elderly people is recognized by the Constitution of the People's
Republic of Bangladesh. This paper focuses on analyzing the National Policy
and legal framework for upholding and protecting the rights, socio-economic
development, and welfare concerns of elderly people in Bangladesh. There is
an  endeavor to explore the challenges which are standing as obstacles in
ensuring the protection of the rights of old-age people and the development of
their socio-economic condition in Bangladesh. Research methods used in this
paper  are documentation,  analytical, comparative, and logical method.
Authors tried to show that senior citizen of the society should get legal and
moral protection from the family, society, and the state.

Keywords:   Senior citizen, old-age home, maintenance, health care, old-age
allowance, legal protection
