India, the world's second-most populous country, has experienced a dramatic demographic transition since independence, entailing almost a population tripling over 60 years (i.e., the elderly). The Nation today is confronted with the enormous challenge of preparing to meet an aging population's demands. The burgeoning elderly population is driving the need for elderly care globally. In India, the situation is paradoxical - on the one hand, we are reaping the benefits of a large working-age population, and on the other, we are staring at a significant portion of it being above 60 years by the year 2050 translating into ~300 million older people. This calls for a severe focus on elderly care, and we need to start now. We are standing at a stage where the present scenario demands innovative senior living models to support elderly care. The present paper attempts to highlight and discuss the various aspects of the modern concept of senior living or senior active living, which is gradually emerging in the Indian milieu by replacing the old age home's traditional model.
