This research project is a response to concern about the lack of aged care facilities in Fiji. There has been a Significant rise in the numbers of elderly individuals in Fiji, due to improved lifestyles and advances in medical research. The increasing numbers of elderly citizens have a direct impact on existing social Structure and healthcare facilities. Poverty and lack of accessibility to proper healthcare facilities in the rural sector have influenced families migration from rural to urban centers for a better quality of life. This urban drift has Significantly contributed in a negative way in the rural communities especially as the elderly are left behind with no family social structure for support.
