Abstract: This study investigated the need for counseling the aged in Jos metropolis. Through stratified random sampling, two hundred aged were selected. One hundred and forty-five (145) were returned representing 72,5% of the questionnaire distributed. The raw data were gathered from the respondents, collected, computed and tabulated into frequency distribution table. The chi-square were used in testing the null hypothesis. The major findings of the study were as follows: both male and female respondents do not value rest and exercise. It was established that the aged in Jos metropolis have a total responsibility in the preparation of their wills and burial arrangement. The finding further revealed that the aged have a narrow perception of the imputation of guidance and counseling, therefore, they are not aware of its guiding ability on the ageing issues. Based on these findings, it was recommended that counseling psychologists should be encouraged financially to organize village or community based counseling for the adults in towns. To that effect, government should provide adequate fund to the state coordinators of guidance and counseling services through out the country.
