Problems When the Old Live Alone

25 Comments

— What can we do if old people live alone? This question was asked in an MSN group several days ago. And I gave some suggestions at that time. Now I post them below.

_____________________________________________

Honestly, I don’t approve of old people’s living alone in China. Even, you know, it’s dangerous and will do harm to old people’s living condition and lives.

Yesterday, I read a piece of news on the Internet. It said that a body of an old man who lived alone was discovered after several days he had been dead. Incredible!

If old people have to live alone, I think there are many measures that should be taken, not only by their children and family, but also by the society and the authorities.

We should take care of old people if they live alone. We must make sure that their living condition is fine and their have enough money to go on with their lives. They shouldn’t be hungry or thirsty. And children should keep in touch with them as often as they can. The family should know the old people’s present situation. In case old people are ill, we must take them to see a doctor immediately.

Meanwhile, we should visit their houses at times. We can spend the weekend with them. We must let them know that we still love them and we are still concerning about them. We must let them know that they are not lonely.

Law and legislation are needed to protect the old people’s rights and insure their required living condition. Any conduct which trespasses on old people’s rights will be punished.

The government should build some departments to deal with everything of old people’s living. If old people choose to live alone, some organs or organizations should take care of them if necessary. A well-run social security system is needed. If old people live far away from their children or their children don’t attend them at all, there must be some people and organizations that take care of old people well.

The community and the society are responsible to care about old people. They can do and should do many things to improve old people’s life.

In a word, we should improve old people’s life by taking as many steps as we can take. We can’t leave them alone. They need us. We need them, too. The old people shouldn’t be separated from our society. They need to enjoy their well-being life.

  3. (1)的确.
    o(∩_∩)o…哈哈,对于一个高中生来说,这样的语法问题似乎太有深度。哈,其实我也不是看的很仔细,是语感问题吧。恩,你说的那种语法结构我确实见的很少,孤陋寡闻,贻笑大方了。而且我似乎有点吹毛求疵,u know , just jealous of Ur perfect English!
    (2)至于中国的英语教育,或其他,我们默哀吧,~~

  5. 有一句话我一直想说,就是——
     中国教育体系里把英语当作是一门课程和一门考试科目来进行教学 并没有把它当作是一门语言  舍本逐末

  6. 谢谢winnie! 你看的很仔细 感到!我一直偏爱物主代词+动名词的结构—– 动名词复合结构在句中作主语时,其名词或代词一般用属格;
    但当动名词复合结构在句中作宾语时,其名词或代词也可用名词通格或代词 …

  17. chinese or japanese?

  18. 中国原来一直觉得老龄化离自己很远,却不料就在眼前了。我现在在日本真的感受到一个老龄化的社会,不论在什莫地方都能看到很多的老人,不过日本要好得是它的社会保障体系,虽然家庭之间的亲情要淡,但是有社会保障体系做底就好多了。我们和日本不同,不仅经济上得差距大,而且社会保障体系差很多。中国经济在飞速发展是不可争辩的,但是以我们几年的经济发展又怎能和一个发达国家相比。况且我们国家的贫富差距很大,刚刚看到晚上说广州有个老太太死在路边,说是估计是冻死的,不管原因是什莫,这种情况的发生还是让人觉得很寒心。如果家庭不能做什莫,那让我们来期待整个社会和政府吧。

  20. 恩,每个人都应该照顾好老人.人人都有老的时候啊,要尽孝道.
    jesse同学很孝顺!
    支持论点!

  21. hi,jesse,i\’m reading your blog,but i think that  old age problems are different between advancing contries and developing contries,when we talk this problems with foreigners,what are they main concerns? thay talk about :how to impory quality of life in old age.but in China,we talk about :Shoule older people live with their adult chidren. why?there is a obvious difference between China and  some contries,there is a line between parents and filial in some contries,but in China,the line is fuzzy.for example finance.

  22. It seems like a essay of IELTS writing test~:D

  23. Hi. What are you studying? Maybe Psychology or something like that? You are very interested in social problem…. It is good. But if we are interested in some issues we should concentrate on one of that in order to solve it. Talk not gonna mak it better.
    😉

  24. some of my friends aged under 30 tell me that they dont want to be regarded as a burden during their time is coming, because these men still young now have already endured.
     

  25. Where is the paradise? If you\’ve never been to yourself, so-called "paradise" is not a real one 🙂
     
    BTW, I am not the "Irene" in that group 😛
