Daycare for All Ages
posted by Amy
This article points out how eldercare differs from childcare in its unpredictability and, ultimately, in outcome (children mostly grow up and require less care, while for elders, the reverse is true). The upshot, however, is that people tend to be connected in various ways--birth, marriage, friendship--to other people, and those people take care of each other. Doesn't seem like such a hard concept to get behind, does it?
