When one begins to think in terms of the elder, at what age does it start? It may well be a generally accepted practice that assisted living care in Moorhead, MN is offered with open hands to those ladies and gentlemen who have reached the age of seventy and beyond. But it could well be that there are those men and women who are proceeding to this point directly after retiring from work. Universally, the retirement age is still around sixty-two to sixty-five for the men.
And around sixty for the ladies. It is also a widely accepted practice these days for institutions across the board, both in public and private practice, to be retiring their senior staff at age fifty-five. It can be argued that this would not have made any sense at all because it is at that stage that exceptional workers are able to impart their knowledge and skills on the younger staff, leading by example and with a great sense of wisdom about them.
Be that as it may, there are those who simply have no alternative but to lay themselves off owing to medical reasons. They are incapacitated, more or less. They can never be as productive as they once were. Nor are they of any value to the companies and its clients that they serve. Those of the younger set really ought to take care of their elderly. It is, after all, the least that they can do after all the years they reaped the benefits of their seniors’ care and custody.
Now they are no longer in a position to look after themselves. And they should be given that opportunity to see out their last years in peace, comfort and dignity.
