Elderly Can You Imagine Being Alone In A Home For

1114 words - 4 pages

ELDERLY Can you imagine being alone in a home for elderly? Old people need more interest and help than children need. Old people spend most of their time thinking about death, which seems closer to them than anyone else and they worry about it. They want to be happy and want to be with their relatives in their last days. Therefore, they need the interest of their relatives. Although it is easier for the relative?s of an old person to put him in to a home for elderly, the relatives should either live near them or with them to give better care and happiness to them.First and foremost, it is easier to leave an old person in an elderly house, especially for daily care. Old people are like babies and they always need care. Many things affect the possibility of living at home while getting old, including health, functional abilities and the amount, availability and quality of home care services. Care in houses for elderly has also been approached from these viewpoints. (http://ehostvgw10.epnet.com/ehost.asp?key=204.179.122.141_8000_908040835&site=ehost&return=n&profile=web&defaultdb=aph) For instance, my eight two years old grandmother lived 8 years with us and I had to bring her pills in every one hour. She was not able to walk without our help, for that reason we were not able to get out of the house as a family. Always one of us had to stay with her and take care of her and according to the San Francisco VA Medical Center, people who don?t put their elderly relatives into a home for elderly leave their jobs. (media.ucsf.edu/.../F883E735901CEA6588256B09006F715E/ $FILE/KB.Covinsky.Caregivers.pdf -) My grandmother could neither go to toilet, nor wash or clean herself. She couldn?t even walk or talk properly most of the time. Her mind was getting lost that she sometimes didn?t remember us. We didn?t think about putting her into an elderly house because we have some strict thoughts about elderly houses. But later, we understood that we have enough knowledge of how to treat an old person. Then we put her in to an elderly house, it isn?t good for us and for her but we needed to and we knew that it would be better for her. They have more special items for an old person. For example, our beds open sores on her body, but the airbeds in elderly house are better for her. That why I know that sometimes a professional help is necessary for old people and my family thought that it is good to know that there is always someone to care of her who is trained for that.Secondly, old people deserve interest from their relatives, especially from their children, because they were actually the one, who brought them where they are. For that reason, the relatives should either live near them or with them to give interest which they deserve. No one can take care of our blood bonded relatives. Emotional attachment is also another point that is important and should be considered wisely. Even though in today?s world, nursing homes are becoming more developed as an...
