I'm wondering what has happened to the notion of us children taking care of our parents...long term, so-to-speak? In most cultures of the world, the elderly remain part of the family...are cared for and, yes, even contribute to their offsprings quality of life.As far as I know, nothing has happened to the notion of us children taking care of our parents. My wife and I have been heavily engaged in doing so for four years, and a fair number of peers are doing, or have been doing the same. Remember that "in most cultures of the world," at least through the last generation or two, average lifespans were shorter. There were simply not as many very elderly people living for long years, with some of the frightening conditions that age is subject to.
