Mexico Retirement Homes and their popularity today
On many occasions, the idea of a retirement home is linked as a place where older adults are confined to spend their last years, but the type of attention and care that these institutions provide is not very clear, so for some people there is a negative image.
However, nothing could be further from the truth. For many years, modern lifestyle has imposed an increasingly accelerated rhythm that makes family life more limited.
In the country of Mexico there is a deeply rooted tradition of family attachment, where all members of the family, including the elderly, live together at home. That is why many times the idea that an older person resides in a retirement home is perceived by many people as mistreatment, when in reality it is the opposite.
The demands of current life make coexistence more limited, and older adults, who require special care, due to their age or illness, cannot be cared for in an adequate way, since in addition to the lack of time, the lack of knowledge on gerontological care.
This is a problem of which society is becoming more aware, and for which they make plans so that, upon reaching an old age, they can receive specialized and adequate treatment, without being a burden to the family.
