Will You look after Your parents when they are elderly?

Recommended Posts

Probably a bit early, but I'm thinking about this.

Grandma had my uncle there to the end and it was probably good for both. 

Anyone given this any thought?

What if your wife is not willing to?

She's doing well in her career, do you still expect her to? @dayomesaydayo

I don't think anyone here is gonna say "no" - but its more a discussion about "how do you feel about it?"

I can't not do so, and I think by the time its necessary, I'll be happy to do so. But I'd probably want to pay for professional help too.

You will need carers to come in daily and help, looking after elderly people is no joke.

I know many elderly people who outlived their children who were looking after them.

Putting someone in a home doesnt mean youre not looking after them though.

Someone with dementia combined with not having any physical capabilities needs 24hour attention/care...only plave you can realistically get that alot of the time is a 'home'

Let me rephrase that. I can’t believe this is even a question on these forums. The majority of posters here are black. Our cultures would rarely allow our parents to go into homes, unless they were real pieces of shit.

Asians never put their parents in homes. It’s taboo to even suggest that to them. 

Now white people on the other hand, that’s a different story.

Proper immature response.

Fam.

Sometimes it's possible you're not giving them the best care either.

Where did I say they’re pillars of excellence? It’s called making an observation which of course is going to be generalised. 

Obviously you feel some way because I said culturally they look after their elderly.

I’ll wait until one of you can show me where I even said they’re pillars of excellence.

Proper inferiority complexes here.

 

edit: I read back my post. I should’ve said culturally they don’t, not never. My bad.
