Taking care of the elderly

Some Jamaicans may say that caring for elderly parents can be difficult for family members, especially  if they aren't proactive. Social interactions are extremely important to an elderly person's mental and emotional health. Regular interactions with people of all ages should be encouraged. One family member should never have the sole responsibility for caring for an elderly family member.
 
Traditionally, one might expect the children to look after their elderly parents, but grandchildren, nieces, nephews and siblings should also be involved. An entire family looking after its members reduces the overwhelming burden. Remember that elderly adults are not children. While some of your parents or grandparents suffer from mental frailties such as Alzheimer’s and maybe even dementia, the majority usually remain mentally active and alert.
 
 
 
Do not talk to them as though you are in charge. Remember to always show thoughtfulness, compassion and respect.
 
Do you play an active role in your elderly family member’s life?

I do play an active role in an elderly family member's life. I think, whilst you are in a position to help, you should assist. Also, helping people gives me inner joy and happiness.

I too agree with you. We must take good care of both kids and elderly persona very carefully. As the person grows older their metabolic rate decreases and prone to diseases frequently. Hence we must take good care of them.

When it comes to elderly health care you should never compromise as the old people lose more and more control over their lives. The younger generation is trying their level best to take over everything and it is really appreciable.
