 The study was conducted to find out the attitude of Health Care Professionals (HCPs) towards the aged attending University Teaching Hospitals in Enugu State. Seven specific objectives and corresponding research questions were formulated, and four null hypotheses were postulated to guide the study. The study utilized a descriptive survey research designed. The population for the study comprised 2018 HCPs working with University Teaching Hospitals in Enugu State. The sample for the study consisted of 335 HCPs. A purposive sampling technique was adopted. A five-sectioned researcher designed questionnaire was the instrument utilized for collection. The instrument was validated by five experts in the Department of Health and physical Education, University of Nigeria, Nsukka. Mean was used to analyze the data obtained. The null-hypotheses were tested using t -test and one-way ANOVA statistics at .05 level of significance. The result of the study showed that the overall attitude of HCPs towards the physical healthcare of aged ( = 2.20), mental/emotional healthcare ( = 2.00) and social healthcare of the aged ( = 1.90) were negative. The independent variables (gender, age, marital status and profession) had no significant influence at .05 level of significance on the attitude of HCPs towards the care of the aged. Following from the findings, discussion and conclusion of the study, three recommendations were made among which is the government should make a health policy which will stipulate for the provision of the aged-healthcare unit in every general hospital in the nation. This unit should be manned by well-trained HCPs, who will be inculcated with the appropriate and positive attitude to play significant roles in responding to healthcare supports and needs of the elderly patients attending the hospital, and to understand that old age is not a sick condition.
