in my opinion, Older people are not a burden. They are to be cherrished. They have a wealth of life experience to be shared. If you have the chance sit and talk to an older person, you may be suprised at what your learn. These older folks have worked hard and done for many others in their lifetime, and deserve good care in their elder years.

Take a look at yourself in say thirty or forty years then answer this question. At the sametime think....if it was not for us older folks you wuold not be here. As people we should take a look at our own moral values.

They are not burden for us. Without their guidance we are no more. They are better guides for us. They know what is what, i mean how to handle different situations in life. So don't shift them to any old age homes. They serverd u alot at ur childhood age. So u r responsible to repeat the same to them. But don't shift them to any other place. They are not burden to us, it is our responsibility n duty to serve them in their age, we are no more at their age. So they are really blessed by the god at their age.

If you are in their shoes, would you want your son to sent you away?

I dont mind them as long as they stay off the streets. They really dont know how to drive. I know it sounds stereotypical but just the other day i saw one drive completely over a median and not even notice lol.

my grandma is old and needs 24hour care. but we couldnt put her in a home. so we got a in home caretaker. but there are some that should be put in an old age home. also.. old people should not drive. or at least have to take the driving tests each year to renew their liscence
