Reply To: Why do we need to send old age people to old age home or leave them alone..

Asked by

They are not the only 2 options for old people – there are other options like sheltered/warden-assisted housing, home care (a carer comes to the house to help out at certain times of the day – eg for getting out of and back into bed) and live-in care where a carer comes to live with you for round the clock care.
It just seems our default position in the UK is to put old people in a home – unlike some of our European neighbours like Germany and Sweden where many more old people are cared for in their own homes by live-in carers.
