Old people are “Gods of experience and treasures who love us”
(Based I on writing posted by Sri Rajagopal Srinivasan .My thanks to him.)
1.Old age is the second infancy and,
Only his family members can make it pleasant,
The senior citizens are the fruits of experience,
If we look after and protect them properly ,
WE would became mature and have a meaningful life.
2.Old people do not except separate room, AC or TV,
They want you to love them, express it by words,
When you go out in the morning bid them farewell,
And when you return back ask them, “how was the day.”
3.Provide facilities to them for meeting their friends,
Or at least talk to them ,because by talking ,
To their friends about this and that,
They would feel that they are not alone.
4.When friends visit you at home ,
Please introduce them to the old people in home,
So that they will never , ever feel ,
That they are safe and a part of your home
4.At any time , do not make fun of the old people,
Especially about their old age problems,
Of hearing problem, poor memory and constant repetitions ,
If you do this , though they are true, they will wounded.
5.If the old one is affected by diseases like ,
Diabetes , heart problem , arthritis etc,
Please purchases the needed medicines one week,

Exercise and treatment and annually make it a point,
Do their health check up and to women above fifty,
Regularly get donethyroid test and mammograms , papasmear etc.
7.You have to encourage old people to use ,
Modern electronic gadgets so that,
They get a feeling that up to date,
With modern technologies ,
And keep them fit and happy.
8.See to it that all old people are entrusted,
Responsibilities like taking children to school,
Going to near by shop , minor jobs in the kiychen,
Because then they feel that they are part of your home.
9.Give all people in your home who does not earn,
Some pocket money , so that they can go to temples,
Buy sweets to the children , give children presents ,
And so on so that their dignity is never damaged.
10.When you take important decisions in family ,
Do consult the elders as their experience would be helpful,
And a request to elders, never interfere in life of youngsters,
As they may think it is unnecessary interference.
A request to the you,please show concern ,
On them who are interested as much as ,
God in our welfare , and please remember,
They were the people who cared for you,
Sacrificed their all , to make you happy.
