It is quite common for people to live in a nursing home after retiring, some think it is negative.
, I argue that it will keep them in mental health and relieve their children's burden.
On the one hand, seniors live in retirement which will improve their mental health. Because there are many people in nursing homes, so they can communicate and socialize with their friends and are less likely to feel lonely.
, it will help them maintain psychological well-being.
, the elderly who live lonely tend to isolate themselves which could cause mental diseases.
, the published reports by UBC show that those who had psychological diseases mostly stayed by themselves, and
proved that staying in long-term centres is the best way to maintain them in a good mood.
On the other hand
, elderly people who are living in long-term care centres are less likely to rely on their children's responsibility. Because In retirement they are cared for by professionals, so in general, their offspring just need to visit them on weekends only, which will remain enough time for their work or their families.
others who are living on their own may need their children to be concerned for them daily which means it will disrupt their kids' life significantly.
, most Canadian seniors lived in nursing homes and don't count about their kids.
someone contends that seniors are better to live in their home, staying in long-term care centres is a good solution which helps them stay healthy and avoid bothering their offspring.
