Do the elderly play an important role in society?

  • Old will always be gold

    They are the people who made our future possible . Their every little achievement in the past helped to shape the future . We could not be here if their sacrifice and sweat was not an element of the past.When we cross old age we too would not want a room in a forgotten place where we live a lonely life....

  • Would you deem your mother incompetent?

    We will all be old and bent one day, if we keep up this stigma that the elderly are worn out and have no possible use, then they would believe that, and so would the world. Leading to know one letting them help, or do things for themselves. We have to show them that just because they are wrinkled it doesnt mean they are worth less as human beings

    what i am saying is, we have to believe in them for them to believe in themselves and be able to act as all other human beings.

  • Their sacrifice for us counts

    Once we, as children, come into the picture our elders sacrifice much of their life to see to it that we are well and happy. They make sure to provide us with all the comforts. They sacrifice their own likes to see a smile on our faces. They look to us in times of failure or success to remind themselves what they are fighting for everyday.

  • Yes they do

     Seniors give generously: they make more charitable donations than any other age group.
     Older people have a wealth of skills and experiences: They contribute on a macro level to the workplace and financially and at a local level to their communities and individual networks in terms of experience. They have also contributed for many decades which is something which is often forgotten.

    They possess a great deal of old world knowledge, and a level of expertise unknown to the younger generation. They possess the knowledge from real-life experiences, situations and customs that can help lay the path in an effort to maintain honorable values within our current culture.

  • We should be thankful for what they have given to us...

    Without them we would not exist. They are there to remind us of old traditions that we may have forgotten. They are proof of the generation that came before us. They can also teach many things because wisdom comes in old age. Finally, they are living proof of the generation before us

  • They are the building blocks of our being.

    If they were not to be than neither would we. If we believe that we should take care of children, than how can we neglect the elders? They are the ones who created and build this place so we can enjoy and have a life of ease, if it werent for them, our life would be hard and not as easy as they are these days. They have done the hard work so we can harvest the fruit ;)

  • Yes we need the elderly

    The U.S. Census Bureau has projected that in the years to come there will be more elderly 65 and up, then any other generation. I believe that we need to volunteer for their needs. They are important for our society and for young people. We need to learn how to take care of them since they are living longer and are the biggest population because of the baby boom. We should help them with living activities and make sure that they eat. I think that a volunteer program in each neighborhood would help to make them feel important in this world.

  • YES they rae good

  • No they don't

    When theres more elderly than young people working people will have to support the elderly because of a decrease in population, the elderly will be a burden expecially if the elderly are not kept in jail where the elderly won't all repeatedly sexually assault with pedastery that will murder people, and repeatedly do regular assault that will murder people.

  • No they don't

    The elderly read the bible more than anyone else, the bible with hell in it which is excessive punishment. The elderly watch the news with criminals in it. Working causes stress which causes crime. If the elderly become a majority of people then the elderly should all be put in jails so the elderly don't take over society and make all the media too mature, evil, violent, and about excessive punishment.

  • No they don't

    The elderly are not important at all to society. The elderly don't work to support society. The elderly don't have fun or entertain people like children do. The elderly are just a bunch of grumpy burdens to society that have nothing to live for and are better off dead. If there's too many elderly then the civilization fails because they cannot support that many people that don't work and are never going to work. The elderly are old, boring, stupid, evil and stubborn. Old people have contributed nothing to civilized society. Old people have the most amount of health problems. Old people have nothing to teach young people that they couldn't learn themselves or from someone younger. Old people are the evilest people there are they are in the process of dieing and want to make as many people as they can die with them by making them older and more mature and by that I mean making them eviler. Old people have no ability to fix their own evil mistakes because they are so set in their old ways. Old people have seen the most amount of evil since they have lived the longest and watch mature media which has the most amount of evil in it. If old people hadn't worked when they were younger then supporting the elderly would be stealing from the future generation for no good reason.

  • Elders becoming a headache!

    I'm not at all saying that they are to be neglected totally.I respect their experiences of life which no one can tell except they themselves.It's just that there is a long generation gap which they really need to understand. Customs and traditions are a priority to our culture but it shouldn't cross our privacies. Not allowed to wear this,don't go there,don't talk to these people and all that stupid stuff.

  • They are not a burden to anyone in fact they are everything

    They are life . How can we say that they are irritating .... Technology has improved but we need them . History doesn't even exists without them
    This should be taken seriously. Nowadays i can see old age homes filled with old people . I know u will be cursing me for writing this in the NO column. But this is for a reason.......

  • They are a burden to the society.

    Many feel that they are important but many people learn from their experience. So its better to learn from the experience than to depend on them. It is very important to be self dependent and not over rely on them. Sometimes they are right and get fussy about things which surely irritates us. They have lived i/n a different generation and the generation now is too fast, tech savvy and progressive. People have different views about different things and their methods are not always the better choice. For eg. A grandma would refrain a child from using technology to learn things fearing that he/she would go on the wrong path. They believe in traditions like dowry which would lead the next generation to a wrong path.
