Parents are generally considered to be the pillar of the family, but are they? It is mostly said that parents come after God but where are such examples? Nowadays, parents are lying in old age homes and kids are enjoying their life with their partners in their homes. Is this correct? We cannot comment on what is right and what is wrong. We cannot pin point somebody’s thinking or decision. But yes, there are places where these unwanted parents can live their life happily and peacefully.
These are the organizations which provide place to elderly people to live and in return they get rent. They are the one who care for them; bestow them all the major items for living and an amazing atmosphere to live in. These old age homes are also known as “retirement homes” where these elderly people can live their second inning of life happily and peacefully with all the facilities of daily living, available with them.
During my research, I came across many old age homes like this. One of them was Sunrise Care Homes. Apart from this, there were many other old age homes but the motto and mission of all were same and that was bestowing care, happiness and freedom of living a happy life to elderly people under one roof.
There are certain need and facilities which should be bestowed by each and every old age home to elderly people. They are:
- It should provide clean environment and facilities to all elderly people.
- The rooms should be neat and clean.
- The food provided should be healthy in nature.
- Proper medical facilities and nursing facilities should be provided to elderly people.
- The team of experts should serve them to the best and should be taken properly care of.
- A cheerful and warm welcome should be given to each new member of old age family.
- Since they are special people therefore, they should be given good importance.
- Discussion sessions should be conducted so that they can share their problems and worries with someone they trust on.
- Small get together and parties should be arranged on special occasions like birthdays, anniversaries etc.
Although, these facilities are not enough for them. They require proper care and affection. Thus, such atmosphere should be created for them which could take off their worries and tensions. They should not feel like they are living in old age home. In fact they should feel as if they are living in their own homes and with their own family. A mother’s care should be bestowed to each one of them as they are like small kids who laugh, who get angry, who fall sick etc.
They are important part of this society as they are the most experienced one in this world, therefore, they are special people and not useless. They should be taken care of properly hence. Thus, all we can say is that enjoying with these elderly people is worth than living a new life and they are also worth living this wonderful world of God.
