Are they really old age homes?The parents take care of their children from the moment they born till they are able to live on their own. Even after that, they will try to see that they are well off. Children's needs are more important to them than their own needs. As such the children should take care of their parents when they enter their old age and look for a hand to hold them. The old person is almost like a child. When the child doesn't know how to walk parents hold the hand and see that the child will walk. But when the parents expect somebody to hold the hand, the children are not able to that. So by spending some money, they are putting the parents in the so-called old age home. They feel that they are taking care of their parents.
Is it that the parents wanted? Are these old age homes are true to their name. They may be providing all the amenities and seeing that the people are comfortable. But the real touch of their children is missing here to the parents. So I feel we can't call them as old age homes but we can say a hostel or a house. The parents want a handhold but not the comfort. They want to see their children smile at them daily rather than sleeping in AC rooms.
So I feel they don't want old age houses but a home to laugh in and enjoy the association of their children and grandchildren. So I request all to see that their parents with you always and let them feel at home.
