Should Children Take Care of Their Aging Parents
Why some people send their aging parents to a nursing home? The answer is that some people do not want to take care of their elderly parents and some people think nursing home care gives the elderly a better care. Most people believe that taking care of aging parents is their children’s responsibility. In different countries of the world, people live according to their own cultural values. They have the right to express their own opinion .Some people believe that children should take care of their aging parents; others think children should not take care of their aging parents. I strongly agree that children should take care of their aging parents for some reasons.
To begin with, they gave us life. Parents who help us to grow up; without them we would not be in this world. Parents took care of us when we were completely helpless and in need. They provided shelter, clothes, medicine whatever we needed at that time; also they provided education, and teach us how we could survive in this world. Parents always try to make their children able and they want to see them a successful person. Sometime parents even kill their own desire and happiness to make their children successful. Therefore, they have right to expect something from their children in their old age. Parents are like God; they are the most precious in our life.
Another reason is that aging parents need better care which they only get at home because only their children know their parent habits; thus they can give them appropriate care. If we send them to a nursing home, they will not feel comfortable. Caregivers do not know aging parents habits, therefore aging parents might not like caregiver service, so they feel sad .When people get older, their behavior changes, and they fell insecure; besides, they get angry quickly. At that moments especially elderly people might fall boredom and it is dangerous for them. Boredom is a slow and painful death; it can seem more like a silent killer. At this age, elderly parents fell more secure at home, and they always want to be with their children because they want more love and gratitude from their children.
Most important of all, aging parents need an appropriate environment .They want to see happiness and enjoyment inside their family. Aging parents want to enjoy every moments with their family, but these days everybody is busy, and we do not have enough time for them. In this situation, conversation is the best way to keep their child and elderly parent’s relation in a better position. We can share our fillings, and reassure the parent that we will support them and always help them to solve their problem. We should always honest with our parent about our time and energy limit; if we honest with them, they are more able to adjust to their child’s absent situation. For instance my friend’s grandfather who is eighty-five years old and they sent him to a nursing home for better care even though he did...
