I used to oppose against the idea of putting our elder love-ones in a retirement homes where they are being cared for by the skilled hands. For me it was like being ungrateful to our parents or relatives, knowing that they were taking care of us when we need them, and now, I believe that it should be our turn to take care of them. But after months of staying here in USA, somehow, I fully understand how placing our older love-ones in a retirement home is considered as a good option on both parties. They don’t want to be a burden to everybody, and also… they don’t want to lose their dependence on their selves. I can’t blame them, especially if they have been living dependent to their selves for a long time, which are very common here in USA.
