With aging, many start depending on a support especially to perform the daily requirements of life starting from cooking to housekeeping and for shopping to visiting the banks. Usually, the post-retirement days are planned by most smart people but as they grow older- it becomes difficult for them to do everything on their own, especially if they live by their own or with busy children. Often, it becomes hard for the other family members to feed them or bathe them or even drive them to the stores or banks as they have work to do.
