There are those who believe that grandparents should continue to live with the family. On the other hand, some think that it is better for the elderly to live in nursing homes.
What way of life will be best for the elderly? Defend your opinion with relevant examples or explanations.
With unprecedented movements towards cities for better job opportunities, which is called urbanization, most people set up a separate family. As a result, elderly living in dangerous situation. So that many people maintain that elderly should live in nursing homes. While naysayers claim that it is better to live with their families. As for me, living with family seems like the best way for old people. In this essay, I will examine advantages and disadvantages of both living with families and that of nursing homes.
On the one hand, old people who are living with families have certain positive effects not only for elderly but also their family members. Firstly, parents can discipline their children the way how to show respect for elderly while they are living together. There used to be a saying ‘Good parents always lead by example’ and ‘Practice what you preach’. Parents can demonstrate such good behaviors by setting a good example while they live with grandparents. Apart from that, if senior are decent they can educate their grandchildren as good means of showing love and affection. However, there are some downsides of living with family. In general, family members are not adequate to react appropriately in the cases of emergencies. Since ordinary people have not many knowledge and experiences then it may cause serious problems.
On the other hand, nursing home can offer proper facilities and services for elderly. Since there are doctors and nurses working around the clock, aged people can be treated on time. Besides, elderly can be taken care of by licensed staffs in order to prevent getting diseases associated with aging such as hypertension, diabetes mellitus or cerebral accident disease. Nevertheless, nursing home has some drawbacks. Even though they can avoid having diseases, it seems inevitable to feel more loneliness and depression as they are away from their families.
In summary, both staying with families and being accommodating in nursing homes have benefits and negative consequences. In my opinion, advantages of former outweigh that of latter. However, individuals are free to choose which aspects they are patronize.
