Warm Hug of Old Age Home
- Jan 16, 2013
An old age home is usually the place, home for those old people who have no one to look after them and those who have been sent by their children. The place is of course like home where the inmates get all kind of amenities for their monotonous routine such as food, clothing, and shelter. All these necessities are well-looked after. They are perfectly aware that security is the necessity in a world that is increasingly fraught with risks. Happily, their disciplined staff is manning the security. Free personal and room laundry are being provided. Reading room, library, indoor games, plenty of entertainment and recreation amenities are there to keep them in high spirit.
Senior housing always provide yoga classes and prayers specially for their lovely senior citizens every morning and evening. They are very concerned about their medical condition. They take them to a hospital for a routine check up on a regular basis. If they need to be admitted in hospital for operation or treatment they make sure extra care and the best possible treatment and proper round the clock services, which they love to provide. Their volunteers and committed staff members give day and night attendant duties to look after the senior citizens that are admitted in a hospital. It is very sad to share that some of the old people living in their old age home are in critical condition since they had suffered before they could join them. Some of the inmates in their retirement home are bedridden and some are blind and others handicapped.
The motto of their supportive health care is to enhance the quality of their life, dignity and the much coveted independence of their senior accommodation community inmates.
LOVE AND AFFECTION
All these necessities are well looked after but, the much needed love and care of their loved One’s is of course sadly missing. In these homes, it is very interesting and even touching to talk to people, whether they are men or women. At least in India till now! The old people are staying away from the home & children, because their loved one’s have left them forever, which is not considered to be a very happy situation. This concept of separating the elders from the youngsters have been imported into India from the west.
It is the break up of the system of the joint family and the introduction of a nuclear family that have brought this unhappy situation in our society, and the old age homes have had to come up to cater to the needs of the elderly.
POOR MANAGEMENT OF WORKING WOMAN
Besides this, since the women have started working out of home, there is no one to look after the regular needs of the elders at home. Working woman has started bringing the attitude from her office towards the elders. Due to her poor management of both places have made a worse situation for elders. Moreover, today a working woman is preparing her kids to do the same with her. For instance, young children are running towards bad society such as drinking, smoking, watching vulgarity and searching bad sites on the Internet due to freedom, which is given by nuclear family’s poor management.
SCARING TOMORROW OF SECOND GENERATION
It is very clear that inmates do get the daily needs fulfilled in retirement home but, from where will the love of dear One’s come? They also want to spend time with their first generation. Happily, little first generation and third generation understand and love each other, but second generation’s poor management is digging the hell for themselves. Wisely, they do not know, if their happy ” today” is giving them relief, their tomorrow will steal their happiness, love and little one’s too and unfortunately, their tomorrow is also searching the retirement villages for them too. The stories of old people are almost the same. For all the inmates, there is no better alternative left for them. Once they are ignored and sent from their homes, the warm hug of old age home help them until their last breaths.
FINAL WAY TO HEAVEN
Really it is a moment, which is unable to explain. Specially, the pain of all inmates, staff at old age home, when any inmate leaves them forever and his loved one’s never come at his cremation. OH, no ! horrible explanation ! words are going to start trembling, eyes will be showering with pain-full tears, hands will get shivering. Tongue will be speechless.
Once in a blue moon, the day comes towards home inmates to stop smiling, reading books, watching television, doing yoga and chatting with retirement home mates. Performing so much care challenges here with old age homes to face sorrows due to constant ill conditions of inmates who die in their care home. Finally, who stop breathing while remembering their soul pains. Old age homes treat these tragedies seriously and make sure their final way to heaven, which must be performed with full respect dignity and respective religious customs.
RECHARGE THE ENERGY OF ALL INMATES
Finally, the staff of old age home drinks a large quantity of sour sips to forget the grief of died inmates. They fully try to let the inmates forget their died inmates moments. If one goes then another inmate enters to fulfills the vacant palace in old age home by carrying his/her spirit to live with their same-mates and the staff involves themselves to create new hopes for them.Wisely! they start organizing the recreation facilities for their sweet inmates to recharge their will-power and energy to live happily.
