A look at ancient approaches to eldercare/ 24 Hour Home Care in Pasadena

At Navajo blessing ceremonies, a tee pee is erected, which symbolizes the womb from which all people emerge. The poles are the "bones of our grandmother" and the word "grandparents" is spoken lovingly and often through the ceremony. Elders are at the center of this graceful dance of mutual care, and the Navajo sensibility holds that caring for the elderly is a "blessing path" in which the whole community should participate. 

Such consideration is nonexistant in our first world way of caring for our elderly parents. Rather than a community, failing elderly health signals a time of confusion for middle aged children. Without comping strategies at our center, we don't know where to turn.
