Foster homes are usually home for the old people who have no one left or have no one to attentively cater to their needs. While some people would make these homes their last resort, the risk of not being able to take care of such people who are in their latter years is just too much to consider.
People today have lesser options of taking care of their elderly folks. Much as they would want, home for the aged and foster homes were put up for a reason, that of which is to provide proper shelter and care for people who have become weak and need a respite to which they can retire from the usual busy days of their lives.
The thought of parents or grandparents being surrendered to such homes may be heartbreaking but the best thing to do is look out for their welfare. This includes that of making sure that they are visited at every possible moment. People may get old but their hearts and minds will always cry out for the people they love.
