How to take care of elderly?
Elderly are our predecessors and well wishers. So we have to take a good care of them. We have to see that they are healthy, they live in a good and clean house and environment. They do not have to walk on busy roads or localities. There should be some one who stays near them, to attend to them, in case of an emergency or need. On road drive slow and let an elderly person pass by and then continue your driving. In a queue if there are old persons give them some preference. Same way for seats in a bus or local train. Most important be gentle to them while conversing with them.
Elderly have a lot of experience. They can advise us very well in many situations. Elderly give us money and property as we are their children. They know how to take care of our health using natural food and medicines. We get appreciation and respect from neighbours or friends, when they know that our elderly are good experts or famous persons. Sometimes when we need our elderly help us in our work. They take care of our children well.
It takes our time to take care of them. Some elderly are very stubborn and do not agree to what we say. We have to spend some money on the elderly. These disadvantages may not always be there with everyone.
people in the olden days used to live together with their elders as an undivided family. Elders were part of the family. Elderly were given the authority to approve important decisions in the family. they were given important tables, chairs, bedrooms, thrones etc.
Nowadays micro families are ways to live. Now many elderly are put into homes for old people. Monthly expenses are born by children or by old persons themselves. Many elderly persons live separately away from their children. elderly have workers at home to take care of their needs and their security.
