Abstract: Life Style Pattern among Ageing Adults *Dr. Kirti Sharma, Project Fellow, Department of Home Science, University of Rajasthan, Jaipur **Dr. Shubha Dube, Associate Professor, Department of Home Science, University of Rajasthan, Jaipur Lifestyles are the perception of a society toward life and the way its people live, think and behave. It includes dietary practices, physical-mental activities, cognitive exposure as well as cultural and environmental revelation. The lifestyle affects the longevity and health in ageing adults (Tiwari, 2013). The present research work examined the extent of life style disease, cardio vascular disorder, diabetes and substance abuse among the ageing adults. For the present study the sample comprised of N= 400 ageing adults both males and females, in the age range of 65 to 75 years belonging to rural and urban setting of Jaipur district (n = 200 urban, i. e 100=males, 100=females and n = 200 rural i. e.100= males and 100=females). Cornell Medical Index Health Questionnaire (Wig et al, 1999) was used to assess life style pattern among the respondents. The data shows that urban male respondents were reported high on Diabetics, which is a clear indication of lifestyle distress. A marginal difference was observed in Cardio-vascular conditions among the urban and rural ageing respondents, but was not significant. Hypertension has been documented high among rural ageing respondents. A high significant association was found between gender and Hyper tension problems in urban and rural male and female ageing respondents at p<.01 (2=14.062). Self-reported frequencies of cigarette smoking, alcohol consumption was found low among the respondents.
