  5. Your article is thought-provoking which is one of my favorite kinds of writing. You are obviously an accomplished writer, and if not, you should be.
    Parents should never be send to old age homes and should always be looked after .

  7. Nice post. Really you have mentioned some great points with us. Most of people are looking these types of valuable posts. Keep in touch with us.

  8. nice . but finally you conclude that they are invaluable. so iam a bit unlikliy

    1. When do you send your parents to an oldage home?
      When they become burden to you.
      When you don't have time to take care of them.
      That should not happen, they are precious, if it were not for them, you will not be here. So that is what I meant. In the end, its your choice. Take care.

  9. These advantages which you have mentioned are accurate. Yesterday I have read about a UK based elderly care center which specializes in giving home care to elders. Here at home care chichester based centers, the independence, individuality and dignity of elders are not just respected but supported. They are given an adequate amount of love and affection.

  15. Whether you are religious or not, the debate on whether it is better to give or receive rages on in many walks of life. This article looks what impact the Worlds financial turmoil is having on charities, community groups and the voluntary sector in general. skin care for the elderly

    1. We need charities, community groups and voluntary sectors to help care the old people because, there are millions of people, who need their service, who are thrown out. Just because I write a post doesn't mean that this problem ends and even if we are nit spiritual, there is the humanity factor which doesn't allow to throw the parents to be taken care of by others, but that doesn't mean it will not happen. Each person has a circumstance, where we cannot judge them. So let the world work as it seems fit. What I write is my perspective. You guys have your own and thank you for sharing it.
