When people get older, their life becomes increasingly hard. The medical expenses get bigger, while the incomes are cut. Many have problems with nutrition, as some of them can’t afford to buy food, while others are physically impaired and can’t go shopping.
Many of them live alone and don’t get help from anyone. And this raises another issue of the old adults: they don’t get enough socialization. They feel lonely and abandoned.
In developed countries, the quantity of old people is permanently increasing.
In the US there’s one organization that helps seniors all over the country. This is Meals on Wheels. In 2016 alone they served about 220 millions of dishes to 2,5 million older adults.
They also help with medications and talking to them, listening to their stories and provide moral support.
We think what they do is absolutely amazing! It’s so important to help people in need. It’s what makes us humans. I have a senior neighbor, whom I often attend and spend some time talking. She always smiles, when she sees me, and that’s the best thing she can give!
Have you see that?
