The most difficult phase of one’s life is his old age, it is a period where one needs maximum support, love and attention, but feels most lonely. It is really sad to see how someone who used to be the head of the family, bailing them out of the troubles, suddenly feels the need to seek out the help from others. Everyone wishes to enjoy their last few years healthy and happy. It is no secret how people wish that even when they grow old, they remain healthy enough to stay self-dependent because nothing hurts you the most than being burden on others. You have lived all your life proudly, how can you not live with the same pride in your last few years. Health facilities are far more expensive for senior citizens than the rest of the people, but that doesn’t mean they need to beg others for their health treatment. They just need the right health plan that covers their expenses and maintain their self-esteem.
