[Perspectives] Family ties

In India, children usually continue to live with their parents past adulthood, as they become financially and socially stable. Both generations contribute to the running of the household. In turn, as parents grow old, the younger generation provides the emotional and economic support. Ideally, it is a rather beautiful system that inculcates close family ties across the generations. Unfortunately, no system is perfect, and sometimes the needs of ageing and dependent parents are ignored. As physicians it is our moral obligation to motivate the family in these situations to be more involved, lest our patients suffer.
