Hi,

Can someone please check this Caring for the Elderly Essay. Thank you!


In Britain, when someone gets old they often go to live in a home with other old people where there are nurses to look after them. Sometimes the government has to pay for this care.

Who do you think should pay for this care, the government or the family?



Old homes and proper care of the old people has been an intriguing issue for years. In my opinion it is a family responsibility, in the very first place to take care of their elders when they get old. After that government and society should take steps that old people and old homes get all the proper care to live healthy life.

The old people have spent all of their lives for their families. They raised, support and made them able to live in the society. They gave them values, courage and motivation to face all hardships. So, when they get old and need moral and physical support, it is the family responsibility to stand beside them. Give them respect, love and care as they gave you when you are dependent on them.

In addition to that, there are circumstances when the family is not able to take proper care of their elders. Such as, financial problems or the old one has no one left in the family. In such cases, I would suggest it is the government responsibility to pay for their expenses. After all, these individuals have paid taxes and support the government to run the state.

In all cases, old people cannot be left alone. These people deserve equal rights and care either from their families or the government. And to make it applicable, the government should keep checks on old homes, if the old people are getting proper care or not. And what lifestyle is given to them in the old home.

Paying for the Care of the Elderly

In Britain, when someone gets old they often go to live in a home with other old people where there are nurses to look after them. Sometimes the government has to pay for this care.

Who do you think should pay for this care, the government or the family?


Generally, old people need help and someone should interest them. There are many home in Britain for help this old people. Also many old people could not retired and have not regularly income. For this reason, the government must pay fort his care. Other retired has an income and they can pay and they must pay to care expence themselves.

Nowadays, old people need a home because they can not live alone. For this reason, they need old people’s home. This home must have nurses and have an emergency room because old people can be sich and nurses urgently should help them. As we know, the old people’s home have many expenses, for example food, home’s rent, pills, bills and employee salary like that. For this reason, this houses need regularly income but as i said many old people have not pension and old people’s expence should pay by the government.

Other case is retired. They have regularly income and they can pay expense themselves. The government should not pay but if they pension is not enough, the government should pay but, if they pension is enough, the government should not pay. Maybe, the government can pay medical expense them. Because they pension is not enough for medical expense and the government can be help them in this case.

To sum up, in my opinion, the government must help old people and if they have not regularly income, the government must pay expense them. For example, medical expense or old people’s home expense. But if retired have a regularly income, the government just can pay medical expense them. I think, the government more than better manage budget for retired or old people expense.

Include Family members
by: Anonymous

Hi,
It would be better if you add some points by including Family members. Because, the family members have the equal right to take care of their parents when they are old.
