Putting old people into a home for the aged is not very common here in my country. We are very traditional although there are some people who do such things. I strongly believe that we shouldn't put old people in such a place because yes, you were right. They did take care of us when we were young. Why not return the favor to them? They are our parents after all. I have a soft spot for old people because my grandparents took care of me when I was a child. I would never put my parents in such a horrible place. ^^

What a tough question. Honestly if it came down to it, yes I could do it. I wouldn't want to but there is no way my mother would come and live with me. My dad was in a nursing home but he wanted to be there. He actually liked it.

yes I probably would put my parents in a home. I have four kids and really do not need anyone else to take care of.
