In my opinion , the topic "Old age homes are the only hope of the elderly today" can also be thought positively. This is the case mostly in the urban areas. These days, parents have either one or two kids. With the financial resources available, most parents send their kids abroad for study and the children tend to get accustomed to the country and hence, continue with their job prospects in that country. The parents on the other hand, are left behind in the home country with an opportunity to visit their kids once in a year. This also applies till they are healthy to travel. When they grow old, they need some sort of assistance. Thus, comes the old age homes in the picture. Now a days, the concept of retirement housing has cropped up, where senior citizens are provided with good care within the campus and they entertain each other. Though, this is not healthy culture, but it remains a boon for the senior citizens who donot have any support due to various reasons.
