I read this on another site. I wonder if any of the younger generation would take us in . If we had nothing , were old and sick. Would you ?Yeah I read all the stuff about "nanny states" all the Stuff about SS, Medicare, and Medicade. But if it all went away tomorrow would you step up and take in old Aunt sue?

Ys. We have talked about this. I am going to add on rooms and learn about gardening.I plan on talking to some Amish to learn what I need to do. If we can save money on the every day things we should be able to handle the big things better.My great grands and grand parents all lived in one house. We need to go back to the old way, family first.Even if there is SS its not enough to support my Aunt . She can barely survive. I'm going over there when the rain stops and talk her into coming to live in our garage apt. Free of charge.

I hadn't actually thought about this. My grand daughter read this and is now working on a plan to make sure her grandparents and parents are always taken care of.I think we all need to start better planning. Better insurance. Hoarding essentials.My old home is big enough to take in most of my older relatives. I'm just happy that someone in her 30s and established in her career is working towards a positive out come to this(for me). If it ever occurs.
