Prof. Temitope Alonge, the Chief Medical Director of the University College Hospital, Ibadan, Oyo State, Nigeria said last year that the elderly would constitute 20 percent of Nigeria’s population before the end of 2016. This means 34,000,000 Nigerians are well advanced in age.
The effect of this is that many elderly and aged individuals are lonely considering their neglect by people who are meant to care for them. These persons are usually very busy with work. This neglect unfortunately sends them to their early grave.
While some will hire a helper, others will ferry them to an old people’s homes and there are quite a number of them in the country. Despite this, you cannot guarantee the care they will receive. Besides, the idea of sending someone advanced in age to an old people’s home is yet to catch up with Nigerians.
There is a dilemma here. You cannot send them to an old people’s home and you cannot take care of them. What will you do?
We introduce to you Greymate Care.
