    Sorry if I offended you.." handeled" was used inappropriately..I meant the issue of perception regarding elders in society.. recently the media had remarked how

    " overwhelmed " caregivers were..Thank you for your feedback...I agree by the way.

    celafoe..It is sad that the elder members of a family are looked on with disdain..I believe it is because so many people are overwhelmed by their own lives we have become a disposable society thus seniors become as " used tissues " thanks for comment
