A man's life is normally divided into five main stages namely infancy, childhood, adolescence, adulthood and old age. In each of these stages an individual has to find himself in different situations and face different problems.
The old age brings it’s own problems such as physical strength deteriorates; mental stability diminishes, so at this last stage of life, the eldery can only expect some help from their spouses or other younger family members.
However, factors such as economy and lifestyle have caused many to neglect their parents or other eldery relatives.
Many Old Age people experience loneliness and depression, either as a result of living alone or emotional neglect from their family members or caretakers. There are usually 2 types of neglect: Physical neglect and Emotional Neglect.
Physical neglect can mean failing to provide an elder with adequate and necessary medication or physical therapy, not taking care of an elder's personal hygiene needs.
Emotional neglect is when family members fail to give basic emotional support, respect and love that inflict emotional pain, anguish, or distress.
Rimbunhope strongly encourage all adults to love and respect their parents, grandparents and other eldery in their life.
