Do we need old age homes? I read a news about an authority planning to make old age homes. It made me sad. Please, we don't need them.

    @Zain, brother really it is a very false practice to invest in such projects .... Like what??.. Should we promote OLD AGE HOMES CULTURE ??? Absolutely not .. And as Nasir sb has said, "There are old age homes in Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad, some are owned by Edhi and some NGO's." These are enough I think and in a Muslim country we shouldn't need more!

    @PK1, I completely understand your point of view and I respect your words but Sir, don't you think this will further promote this culture and people will start thinking in another angle, "Oh! We have no time for our parents. Why don't we send our parents to old age homes for their better look after ..Oh, we are so caring!!!"

    What I experience is parents don't expect anything from kids, they even leave properties for their children after their death ... what they want from us is affection towards them and care ...

    So I totally oppose Pakistan Baitul Mal's plan.

    May Allah bless and protect all parents.. Aamin

      Zain bhai many people treat old parents really bad. If someone cannot treat old parents with the kind of love they gave him when he was a kid, then a much better option is to send them to old home. At least paid employees will take care of their needs.
      Even busy professionals like doctors, lawyers and engineers give no time to parents and are not worried about their needs.
      Instead of being mistreated by their children and being shouted at they will be happy in the company of other old folks.
      So there should be old homes for parents of disobedient children who don't know the value of their mother and/or father.
      But this is the topic of another forum not this one.

        Agreed with PK1.
        We do need old age homes.Instead of treating the elders badly its best to send them there where they can be looked after.
        But i would rather die than to send my parents there.they looked after me when i couldnt now its my turn. Sadly and shamefully this cant be said for every one in Pakistan.

            Is their potential in Islamabad to set some old peoples homes up? Is this a good alternative as appose to a hostel or plaza?

              Pakistan Baitul Mal (PBM), is planning to make old age homes in Islamabad. But i wouldn't be interested in investing in such homes.
