Seniors are a disillusioned lot part of which has a lot to do with their own thinking.
Let’s put seniors at ease.

Seniors now have many activities going on because the organization and association are active providing some good programs for you. There are good programs that includes livelihood programs, light sports activities and even pageant. You may also keep yourself busy on agriculture and gardening.

When my wife and I turned 60 in 2011, we went to the office of the senior in our place to register ourselves. Then, we were given an identification card and a booklet for our purchases to be made like the foods, the medicines, among others. We have a law for us as senior citizens. The law says that we’re entitled to 20% discount on the authorized…[Read more]

When a person needs ‘patient’ care if it is done at home then that is not sufficient. Both, the one who needs care and the one who takes care suffer.

My mom had stroke and diabetes while my dad had high blood pressure plus tinnitus
When my mom had stroke, my dad insisted to take care of her on his own rather put her into the stroke rehab centre or nursing home.
Until now, my dad had been taking care of her and loving her more than he first married her.
Although they had been through bad…[Read more]
In the good old days old age homes, here in India, were meant for the destitute but now even the financially independent opt for such a facility which nowadays compares well with what one sees abroad.

@bestwriter As I said, every situation is different. In the West, many seniors prefer to be in their own home and do not desire to have anyone with them on a regular basis. They prefer to have visits with friends and family but otherwise to enjoy the peace and quiet of their homes. It is also very common for the older couple or individual to be…[Read more]
@Ruby3881 Most seniors are not happy in homes for seniors but they have no other better alternative. I have seen seniors who are in their own home with no family around and this situation is not something any senior would opt for either.
It used to be different during the good old days when joint family system existed. But now many seniors are left alone, children, as I have said are not around. In such circumstances how can a senior manage alone?
With domestic help being rare these days and when seniors are alone don’t you think they have a better life in a home for seniors?
A senior home will have facilities that will not be available at home specially for those who cannot fend for themselves.
Having worked in a chronic care facility, I can say without a doubt that many people who are put into retirement homes or long-term care simply don’t belong there. On the other hand, I agree very much with @4cryingoutloud: it depends on the situation and on the facility.
In the vast majority of circumstances, older people can manage in the home…[Read more]

My mom who is 83 is determined to stay in the home that my dad and her have been living in. My brother is near b y as all of us girls visit and call.

However, a lot of times it’s sad when family put their parent in a nursing home as some times, the children are so busy and maybe don’t wa…[Read more]

I am already in my senior age. I would be turning 65 by October. My wife would also be 65 in the same month. We would prefer to be in the Senior Home later so that we could be properly taken care of the government and of course with the regular visit of our children. We don’t want to bother them anymore. That is when they express that they…[Read more]

Children have left the shores seeking greener pastures leaving behind seniors to fend for themselves. Domestic help is rare, properties are neglected, with no proper infrastructure seniors cannot handle. There is the fear of memory loss, bone fractures and other chronic ailments.
Should they shift to seniors homes. Would you? ?
