Who takes care of the elderly in the United States today?Many people wrongly believe that when people reach old age,their families place them in nursing homes.They are left there in the hands of strangers for the rest of their lives.Their grown children visit them only occasionally,but more often,they do not have any regular visitors.The truth is that this idea is an unfortunate made-up story.In fact,family members provide over 80 percent of the care that the elderly people need.
Because Americans are living longer than ever,more social workers have begun to study care-giving to improve care of the elderly.They have found that all caregivers share something in common:All caregivers believe that they are the best persons for the job.One caregiver said that she had always been close to her mother.Another was the oldest child.In other words,they all felt that they could do the job better than anyone else.Social workers interviewed caregivers to find out why they took on the responsibility of caring for the elderly.They discovered three basic reasons.Many caregivers believe that they had an obligation to help their relatives.Stated L helping others made them feel more useful.Others hoped that by helping someone now,they would deserve care when they become old and dependent.

When I was 65,I decided to go back to school.I realized this was the step toward bettering my life.It was merely an idea,and when it was time to take action,a community college named Rock Valley College stood out as a great fit for me.The reasonable cost and location of the main campus meant that I could attend classes without seriously affecting my family’s finances.
My family noticed a change within weeks;I was happier,more organized,more focused.My workload forced me to manage my time more wisely and work more sufficiently.I felt confident,ready to take on new academic challenges and fill in my knowledge gaps.
However,the changes I’ve experienced run deeper than that.There is a renewed sense of curiosity and a desire to learn in our house---not only for me,but also my children and husband.
Within the excellent professors and great classes at the college,it would have been difficult to pass these lessons on to my children.“Education is important”would have been just words,instead of a way of life they now see.The example I set sends a stronger message:Pursue education with passion,and happiness will follow.
The college has made it possible for me to reach my potential and set higher goals for my life.Going back to
school has enriched my entire outlook on life.Anything is possible with an education;I felt that from my first day at the college and still believe it today.My community college has most certainly changed my life for the better,and I even made a few friends.
