I was working on my Geography homework and while reading in the text book I came upon a fact about Italy that I had no idea about.
In Itay they do not put their elderly into retirement homes. Usually the family helps to take care of their elderly. As years have gone by more women have had to join the work force and are unable to stay at home to take care of the elderly. Well to fix the situation a family can adopt an elderly person to be the family grandparent.
The person would go to the families house and stay there during the day and is legally part of the person's family. I found this to be so interesting.
I told hubby we should adopt someone so our kids can have a real grandpa. My dad has never met my youngest to kids. He lives in Cali and we don't have a lot of communication. And his dad well there is so much wrong with his dad that I could spend all day explaining.
I think that the idea is wonderful. Did you ladies know about this?
