Modern world is witnessing a rapid evolution in almost every facet of life. Quality of education has also improved by leaps and bounds to keep up pace with this evolution. Increased impetus is being given on education both by parents and children alike. With increased connectivity and availability of multitude of options, youngsters of today choose the best avenues to fuel their vision of growth. Be it education or employment, they do not shy away from moving to new geographies in the pursuit of success. Only a handful of them stay back in their hometowns pursuing family vocations or businesses.

Parents on the other hand are prioritizing the future of their children ahead of their own emotional needs. They do not want to impede the professional growth of their children; hence staying put in their hometowns while waging a battle of loneliness has become a norm. Adapting to the environment in new cities is a big challenge even if they decide to live with their children. Furthermore, with most young couples opting to work full-time, boredom creeps in the lives of the elders thereby nullifying any feeling of comfort being with their kids. This results in increased affinity towards their own hometown. Irrespective of the place they live, one factor is a constant companion – loneliness!

Living alone in their hometown comes with its own perils for senior citizens. In many cases there is no one to take care of them during emergency situations. Also, there are instances of these people becoming easy targets for anti-social elements.

As a result, old age homes and senior citizens’ communities are becoming increasingly popular over the past few years. While many of us have a mind-block about staying in such facilities, a deeper analysis unfolds several advantages associated with old age homes. In addition to security and healthcare, one can find several other people who are from similar backgrounds. New acquaintances and friends help infuse a new enthusiasm in life. It becomes easier to share the thoughts and feelings with these newfound friends. Thus, a new ecosystem of support is born.
