Walfared, but lonely; the living dead - Smelly Media-

Welfare! Social state! State support! Taking care of its citizens!

Ok, the last point I am not an enemy of, but there is a rule: "The rule of unintended consequences"

All this feel good policing... Giving support to single mothers to the extent that fathers are not needed (with basically all men forced to pay (PC: tax) women to have raise their dysfunctional womb turds), and so creating a generation of dysfunctional kids; is just an example of unintended consequences.

But there is a clearer one, which of course is once again downplayed by the media's left hanging di....

Elderly left in hospital care for Xmas

People are becoming increasingly reluctant to bring their elderly hospitalised
relatives home for Christmas. Hospitals say a clear change has been
witnessed over the past decade.
When the state takes over the responsibilities of families, at some point some (which turns out to be most) families will let those responsibilities go.

This is no surprise.

The state took over the care of the elderly, you know, in the name of the elderly. It was a task too much for families. I mean these families don't even have time for little babies, looking forward to the day some government worker will take on the role of parenting once the baby is 12 months old.

So now, these families are letting their elderly taken care of rot in the hospital for christmas.

Yes, daddy government can provide care, it can provide financial support, but can it provide the love and caring of a family?

Apparently in the quest for the welfare state, another casualty is the souls of the elderly. The body alive and taken care of, the soul rotting in loneliness, hoping for time to pass so that the nurse comes for vitals check, only to see some living being, even if this human is only there because the pay is doubled for Christmas days.

Tinsel and artificial Christmas trees decorate hospitals around the country
this holiday season. Work in the patients’ ward may be difficult, but the
personnel try to generate Christmas cheer— donning elf hats and singing
My respects go out to these people who are forfeiting their own families to take care of those in need.

Once more the question is,

Would those elderly want to be in the hospital between those white walls, alone except the people paid to be there, or would that elderly be with the children and the grandchildren, who sadly are more interested in playing with their new ipads instead of listening stories of a life lived through thick and thin?

How many lonely christmases would these elderly forfeit, just to have one christmas with the family?

Can daddy government give you love?

“We’re trying to make it feel at least a bit like Christmas would at home,”
says Merja-Liisa Kaaronen, who heads hospital services of Asikkala–Padasjoki
in southern Finland.
My respects.

Kaaronen says that part of the reason is the weak physical condition of the
hospitalised elderly. Patients’ health may not always allow for home visits. Long
distances also play a role.
There was a time overcoming these factors was a reason for pride in families, it was a way to show the elderly that they are loved and cherished.

Excuses do not hide the fact that an families are losing the first rule of families: Love and care.

Gimme my Ipad.

I know in some cases it is near to impossible o take care of some of the elderly in bad health conditions, but how many are that? How many are just that the strond and independent children just did not want to have the elderly around?

“Relatives often live far away, so family Christmas is not celebrated like it
was before,” Kaaronen notes.
Yea.  I take 12 to 24 hour long trips (one way) to see family.

These families that are reluctant to take these trips today, will get to feel what it is to be a lonely old person in the ward where living is more like breathing with a fying soul.

Will daddy government provide love to revive that soul?

Can daddy government cure this loneliness?

What other casualties of the "rule of unintended consequences" are there?
