Hi SidKemp. Thank you for taking the time to share your experience, your insight on the elderly and knowledge. I should research meditative presence. You are a caring person.
James Bowden says
Thanks, Jlbowden. You're right that the elderly succumb to emotional and mental issues. The doctors and social workers are vey busy. Drugs are easy to dispense. I shall research osteo.
Abby Campbell says
Thanks, Abby. You are absolutely correct. I just wish treatment was more freely given as some have no family to fight for them. Your daughter is a lucky one to have your love. Hugs.
Thanks, irvinetraveller. It's my dream to start some sort of advocacy group for these who don't have anyone fighting for them. I'm still learning the ropes of how everything works right now. Have you joined billybuc's group called H.O.W.?
Dear Abby, All it takes is someone with a dream and the fortitude to head on. I shall look up billybuc's group. Thank you.

Your mother was lucky in finding that good doctor. I guess the science is there. The willingness to treat is a problem. Thanks, Becky, for sharing your experience and knowledge.

You are absolutely correct in that friends and family should ask for help. The problem I have seen is that social services and the medical community are quick to dismiss the elderly's problems and it is quite a struggle to get the help. Thank you.
