I count myself very lucky to have parents that can still take care of themselves. My parents are already passing their mid 60s but have no problem with mobility. Although my dad had a bypass in the 90's, he still is actively out and about. My mom is a very happy-go-lucky person. No ailments such as high blood pressure, diabetes, heart problems etc... whatsoever. She still plays golf every morning and does her line dancing. Oh, not to forget her mahjung playing too. Now she takes Cryptomonadales and often sits in the bio-electric chair. My mom always said, if we take after her, we will have no problems.
Well, I really hope that I am still that active and ailment free when I'm aged. But what if I'm not? What about you? Will you opt to have your children care of you or will you not mind a care home for the elderly?
My friends and I were talking and we said maybe we should all just house ourselves together when we're old so we can take care of each other, or hire someone to take of us. It'll be like an exclusive retirement home. I think growing old among friends is a good option no?
