Senior Citizens: Who should care for them?

In many parts of the world, the number of older citizens is slowing growing to the point someday in which the elderly will out number younger citizens. However, in your country, what are common ways in which family take care of their older members? Do families care for each other in their old age, or do the elderly prefer to live on their own? Are these attitudes changing over time? Please share your ideas.

  1. In my country, there are very few rest-homes. Senior citizens usually live with their descendants. Family with three or four generations live under the same roof is very common. I think the older citizens will be happier when they live with relative.

  2. as a daughter of a loving parents, it will be very great of exchange to give them more patience and more attention on there older age. not just because of duty as a daughter but to show to them that they are more appreciated on there in capable days.
