Some commentators feel that grandparents should live together with their children and grandchildren, while others say that elderly people should be encouraged to live independently. Consider the possible arguments on both sides of this debate, and reach your own conclusion.

Grandparents are the root of the family tree and we can'
t
imagine our lives without their existence.
However
, it is argued that grandparents should spend their
last
time
in old
age
home
for better health
care
facilities. I strongly disagree with
this
thought and I believe grandparents should spend their
last
with family while playing with their grandchildren. One can'
t
imagine a house without its roof the same way, we can'
t
imagine our lives without our grandparents. Forefathers are the backbone of the family, they not only bound us together but
also
they shower their love and
care
on us. Along with
this
, they are the value system for their bloodline.
For example
, a worrier raises their kids with the stories of the valour while a poet raises their kids with poetry and elegance.
Besides
this
, grandparents
also
have an emotional connection with the family so the way a family can take
care
of their elders no one else can do.
However
, many thought that the old
age
homes are the best place to spent the
last
time
of life. It is because, not everyone can afford the medical requirements of their elders;
therefore
, they can avail the best available medical facilities at the old
age
home
.
Besides
this
, in today's
time
, the majority remains busy to earn their daily bread so they don'
t
have sufficient
time
to take
care
of their elders well at
home
. Along with
this
, grandparents have to participate in the daily chores of a household even if they are not physically fit to do so.
For instance
, a person living with a family has much more responsibilities compared to a person living alone in an old
age
home
. In conclusion,
although
elders may get much more comfort at old
age
homes, they can'
t
get the emotional attachment, love and
care
which they get from the family and I believe
this
is the most important requirement of elders at their lat stage of life.
