It is the government’s responsibility to look after the aged. Do you agree?
It can be argued that the government are accountable for the of its older citisens and there are a number of factors which support this point of view.CorrectIncorrect
Firstly, the majority of older people have spent most of their adult lives working hard and contributing to society. Older people deserve to have peace of mind once they finish working. Therefore, pension levels in many countries are not in line with inflation which means that older people are often unable to meet the costs of maintaining their basic needs in the UK for instance, many pensioners find it difficult to adequately heat their homes in winter.CorrectIncorrect
Secondly, the structure of the traditional family is changing in many societys. The extended family is often much smaller than in the past and often fewer family members are available to take care of older relatives; in any case, elderly people are often preferring to remain as independent as possible and do not wish to be a burden on their family, only happy to ask for help with small such as shopping.CorrectIncorrect
Admittedly, since the ageing population is grown in most countries, some believe that it is unrealistical for governments to provide adequate pension funds; however, in many countries, their are plans in place to overcome the challenges of this situation.CorrectIncorrect
To conclude. It seems reasonable for those who have worked hard all of their lives to expect that they will be taken care in their later years. It is important that the government considers now how an increased in numbers in this segment of the population will affect their ability to do so.CorrectIncorrect
