World Elders Day 2013
World elders day 2012 date is October 1.
There are many cases we have heard nearby that, that couple has sent their parents in old age centres. This is because there arises a vast generation gap between two groups which are increasing day by day. Young generation think by providing food ,clothes and shelter their duty is completed towards them, but important thing is they want our attention, care and time, which becomes difficult for younger’s to give. There arises a tremendous impatience in younger class that they don’t pay any heed of their parents. They compel their parents to leave their homes and settle somewhere else. In this way we, the younger generation, no doubt are committing a crime.
What we are doing?
We all are very familiar with the fact that one day we will also grow old and come in this group. Even then there are many families in this world who forced their parents to leave their own place and live an isolated life. There are many reasons between them like showing disrespect, impatience, ill treatment in front of family members and society, showing them inferior by doing ardent behaviour, which result in severe results against our elders.
How elders suffer?
When their children misbehave with them they are badly shattered and therefore they come into depression and result in stress.
Psychological and emotional disorders:
Our elders expect lots of exception from their children and when their emotion gets hurt they suffer from physical ailment.
Some cases these people fall sick frequently, feel restless, and remain in isolatation.
Therefore, World Elder Day is dedicated to make our elders happy and calm. Many organisation are working for elders to provide them safe and better life also there are many day boarding’s centres opened for them where they can spend their quality time with others members. The Government should also pay attention towards this group by providing proper security measures and securing their life financially. But still there are many places where this day is celebrated in old aged homes or centres. The only way we can keep our elders happy by satisfying their physical and emotional needs. They want a little attention and time to show themselves that they are also the part of the family. This is the only thing they want from us.
In the last, one should know well that everyone has to face ageing, what we do with our elders same can be repeated by our children. They observe the atmosphere in the house and when they grow up they do the same. So, we all should try to bring the change in our attitude towards elders as they have more knowledge and experience, give more care and attention and also helps to form the strong base of the family.
