What are your views on people in their 70's and 80's living alone in large houses?


There are many issues to consider regarding growing older. Who decides if a person is safe, living alone in a large house? Should large houses just be for families with children? Should the amount of help someone needs to stay in a large home be dependant on how much money they have?

    Attikos, you make a very strong case. I think of my own mother and how she loves her garden. How can you give up what you know and love at a time when you may feel vulnerable? Again more questions. Thanks for answering.

    I just mean service providers like cleaners or carers and nursing staff.

    Strange then that you choose to answer a human rights question.
