Yes, to some extend, as people are getting busier and busier and old people feel neglected.So there should be sort of hostel where they can stay and some one will take care of them.
I know few people who stays alone at home during day time as home and feel lonely, I wish there should be some day care center also should be there where they sit,play, chat with other of same age.I wish to start such a place. Do pray so that i'll be able to

I agree that it is a departure from our basic good nature to put someone as close to us as a parent in an old age home. But what about dutiful and caring children who are themselves getting on in years, and are still treated in a cold and cruelly manipulative way by their own elderly parents? Parents who, despite all the care, try to take advantage, are opportunistic, and think nothing of hurting their children by their words and actions? Don't such children deserve to be peaceful after decades of caring leaning towards servitude by putting such unappreciative and uncaring parents in old age homes?

Old Age homes should not be necessary during any time be it modern or otherwise..... I don't know how grown ups can even think about putting their old parents in some kind of a home after all that they have done for them.
It's unfortunate that they forget that at one point of time in future they too will be on the same threshold....... will the now grown ups like the old age home when THEY grow old?
