So guys, Would you send your parents to a retirement home when they are old and unable to look after themselves properly or would you take care of them at your own home?

Assuming that they are dependant.

Personally I would hate to send them to a home.

Good question.

Yes.

If I couldnt fully look after them with the care and attention they need then yes.
Not to say I'd be incapable, but if commitments like work, etc got in the way.
Then I'd happily pay someone to give them the care they actually need.

Me too, but I'd put pride on the back seat to make sure they are looked after as they need.

After the way my grandparents have been treated by their retirement homes there is almost no chance that I would send my parents to one. My wife and three other relatives work at retirement homes and the stories they tell me about how the residents are treated make me wonder why some of the staff aren't arrested.

If by 'send to a retirement home', you mean 'murder them and take their house', then yes. Yes I would.

old people should tie balloons to their houses and fly away.

no more old people on the streets, no more old people in malls

AND NO MORE OLD PEOPLE WHO STAND IN FRONT OF A TRAIN TICKET MACHINE FOR TEN MINUTES STARING CONFUSEDLY AT THE MACHINE AND THEN WALK AWAY WITHOUT BUYING A TICKET AND MAKING ME MISS MY TRAIN

yeah.
#10
Depends.

If my parents treat me well these last years I will be living at home, I won't bother.

But if they aren't nice to me. Hello retirement home!

Depends, if I was single or going out with a girl, or newly married then retirement home it is.
If I was married with kids and had a massive house then I would let them live with me.
#21
Nope. I'd hire a home carer to look after my mum if she got to that age. My mum works in a retirement home and, well, there's no freedom there and it's just depressing.

Depends how old age effects their health and if I have the skills and equipment required to take care of my parents.

I'd probably end up having too, because I doubt I'd be able to look after them if they got terribly unwell

if my mom has use of her hands and can stand then I am keeping her at home to utilize her talent and continue to not pay for haircuts. My dad would live in a room with a computer, TV, and such (and if he can still walk around, he would disappear for weeks and come back with deer and fish).

No. Then I would just be stooping to their level. I'll let them grow old on their own.

edit: Also, after reading Stephen King's The Green Mile, retirment homes sound like hell.

Pretty much this.


If I have a job and family there is a good chance that I wouldn't have time to properly care for them at my house. Not to mention I likely won't have the extra space for them to live with me.

I honestly don't think my parents would want to live with me though. They wouldn't want to put that burden on me.

I wouldn't want to, but there's no way in hell they'd live with me.

Not really, they have looked after me for 18 years.

Also, I have done volentury work in old people's home and have seen how they have been treated.

I wouldn't send them, but I would talk to them about it and if we both decided that it was a better option then I would. They did it to their parent's, so I don't think it would be too out of the ordinary.
