The real crisis is not necessarily in areas where the elderly need care. It is where they are not in need of it. Generally, we see elders as “olders” - useless in the grand scheme of things. We see old age as a time of need, sickness & of wasting away. And because we do, we fail to see “them” as still there, still alive. And we see this “situation” as better dealt with through an out of sight out of mind concept of care. We “house” them in elder prisons called "retirement homes" and visit. . . when we can. In reality elders are, more often than not, lost energy, wasted experience and skills, ignored mentoring potential. Not so long ago, England created a Loneliness Ministry. It recognized that elders are "becoming" ill often not because they are old but because they are ignored & "wasting away" - a waste of potential, of brains, of heart which would be willingly shared if we connected these experienced people with younger generations who in our era are becoming just as emotionally needy as our elders are becoming - suffering from anxiety, depression and suicidal tendencies.
Through a re-connection of elders and young, mental health care for both would decrease - saving our worlds from depression at both ends of the spectrum. If a young electrician, a young visual artist, a young accountant needs guidance, what better place to get it than from the built-in knowledge and experience of an elder from that realm. Time to stop looking at our elders as waste, as in need to be tended to garbage that just wont recycle. We choose to not recycle their knowledge, And that is the actual waste - a waste of insight and values that elders would readily transmit. Ironically, “lesser developed” nations survive on mentoring; as a crucial step forward both for the receiver and the giver. Time to review our apathy regarding the young and the elderly.
