    Your last sentence just put a different spin on the “it takes a village” quote that I constantly hear from parents.

    It takes a village to raise a child. But it also takes a village to care for the elderly.

    What happens when that village is no longer cooperating?

      That’s why the Silent Generation created industrialized elder care. Nothing like a hospital setting to help with the old dementia.
