GETTING OLD CAN BE EXPENSIVE WITH NO HELP AROUND January 14, 2011 crizlai As time passes by swiftly by the winks of many blinks, you can actually feel that the body clock is deteriorating much faster than ever each day. Physically and mentally, you would get more illness cruelly hitting hard on you. Your senses would begin to show signs of failing. Your medical bills would hit high on the ceiling. If you are rich, these problems would not be a problem at all as you can seek many alternatives with your richness. The worst scenario would be to be sent to the Home for the Aged to settle all your “inconveniences” by just paying a lump sum of money. Thus, there’s the lack of personal contact with the ones who had undyingly loved you from the start of your birth into the world. All they would get would be a few hours daily of visit from their personal helper. Unfortunately, a large number of the elderly would not fall into this category of the rich and famous. They have to spend their lifetime earnings to fend for themselves. Medications, supplements, vitamins or even frequent visits to the doctors are not costing any much lesser nowadays. The amount spent in keeping the body in the best of health can be quite a surprise. How great it would be if any member of the family is in the nursing line. He or she could at least have the necessary experiences in caring and nursing any elderly members in the family within the best of their knowledge. As a Registered Nurse (RN), one would provide scientific, psychological, and technological knowledge in the care of patients and/or families in many health care settings. It would even be better if one were to possess a B.Sc (Nursing) which could easily be achieved through any of the bsn online programs available out there. Don’t you think that it would be so ideal to have someone so qualified who has gone through bsn online around to empathize along with you through old age? I'm thirsty for a drink now. Would you be kind enough to treat me?
