Where Is The Care?

I can’t stand it when I see an elderly person uncared for. I’ve seen some elderly people who look like they’ve been thrown away and it’s heartbreaking. The worst for me is when I encounter an elderly person who smells like urine or feces or the ones who are clearly walking around in soiled and overloaded adult diapers. Lord have mercy, it breaks my heart every time.

One can’t help but to wonder: Where is their family? Do they not have people who care for them? I would never allow my beloved mother to walk around in such a way. I care too much about her and love her way too much to have her looking like she’s thrown away. My mother still gets around pretty good and is still active at her age, but if it got to the point where she couldn’t care for herself, my siblings and I would make sure she is well taken care of.

All of us are going to grow old one day, and those who neglect their older loved ones would do well to remember that. Let us hope that when WE grow old, our loved ones will still love and care for us.

Until next time…

  1. Very sad and true. It is so inhumane. I fear that humanty is losing it sense of empathy or mercy. Growing up every year our school made the classes visit nursing homes. Of things keep moving this way I wonder if they will just be euthanizing the old ones.
