Reply To: Why do we need to send old age people to old age home or leave them alone..
Sometimes there is no option. My mother-in law is 98 and is fast losing her capacity to cope with everyday living. Several years ago moved house to be near her, arranged carer visits to her own home when it became needed, had her living with us when that became necessary. She now cannot cope with our house because it is not a bungalow and, even with a stair lift, she could no longer manage. She then went into assisted living with visits to us, but after a fall in our house she can no longer visit safely. She is very confused but happy in her assisted living accomodation where she gets professional help, care and company. We can and do visit her, and know she is safe.
