All we wanted in life is to love and be loved. One of the people that have given us a genuine love is our father and mother. Our parents have worked very hard to gives us a good future. Their sacrifice is measured of how much they love us. Their devotion is truly an inspiration and blessing. They are worth emulating and following for they have truly made their marks on our hearts forever.
Society has become results oriented with how fast things are and sometimes we neglect the most important people in the society which are our elders. The government has given them privileges and pensions so that they can live life to the fullest at their age. Many services were offered and programs established to help our elderly for they are the priority and some include the following:
Care giving – This includes the service in meals and shopping needs. Old people sometimes are too weak to buy their stuff so this assistance is giving them a good help. Also when it comes to house chores, they are the ones doing the tremendous work that our old people are too weak to handle.
Nutrition program – It is one of the human aspect that the government pays attention especially for our senior citizens which needs this type of program. Lunch programs and meals service are not the only component to this program but it pays attention to the diet and exercise appropriate for the old people.
Transportation program – The government provides a shuttle service or a bus for the senior citizen when they have their errands such as visiting stores, to vote during election, attend Sunday worship service, attend occasions and visits to the doctor.
Other grants such as rental and food stamps are also provided to those whose retirement fund is not enough to support their needs. Indeed, our elders are important and must keep them healthy and well provided in all aspects in life. If it was not for them, we are not here in this world.
