    The advantages and disadvantages of special homes for the elderly

    Hi all,
    Please support me improve the below essay with topic as title.

    Home for elderly is always a problem in our modern life. In order to deal with this issue, many governments applied a policy called special homes. Obviously, there are many advantages we can see from this policy.

    Firstly, old people have a better living condition in such those homes. They have chance to access to heath services not only by government but also offered by private companies which deliver high quality of treatment to improve health for them. For patients, who are facing with serious diseases are taken care by nurses everyday without going to hospital. Moreover, in case of emergency if the old people have any health issue suddenly, they can get treatment timely. Another good point of special homes is freedom. They can share hobby with the others. This is really difficult to do if they are living in a big family. For example, watching a favorite television program or feeding pets.

    By contrast, special home also has disadvantages. One of the issues is loneliness that we can easily find from those homes. The elderly usually feel that they are abandoned by relatives. This leads to serious problem is depression. If this happens, it is better to let them keep living with family and relatives should spend more time to take them care. They might feel uncomfortable or bored without family as well. There are no kids for to play, hardly to share feelings which they used to share with relatives. If the staff in special homes do not know their character will cause misunderstanding, uncomfortable. As a result, they are not happy to live in there anymore.

    In conclusion, special home is a good solution in a modern society. But we need to consider the negative effects that it might cause for our senior citizens. As well as, we should visit them frequently while they are living in there.

    Re: The advantages and disadvantages of special homes for the elderly

    Is it okay if I write a sentence as below:

    ---->No matter how it is, losing some time for a good meal is still better than saving time with fast food.

    Or

    ---->No matter how it is, taking some time for a good meal is still better than saving time with fast food.

    which one is better?

    Re: The advantages and disadvantages of special homes for the elderly

    I would say:

    No matter what (it is), spending some time cooking a good meal is better than saving time going for fast food.

    To me,"no matter how it is/no matter what" doesn't mean much, unless you have a context which requires it.

    You are advised to start a new thread on a new question, though I have given you a reply here.
