The "Old Folks' Home" is a place where the elderly go to live the rest of their lives when their children do not have the time to look after their ageing parents. This home concept is common in Malaysia. I'm not sure if there is such a place in your country, but what I'd like to know is why do these homes exist? What excuses do children have for not taking care of their parents? Would you send your parents to an Old Folks' Home when they're old?
