    What is more challenging to watch after? I mean, I know it hurts the pride of old people, but many of them simply act like children. They have to be watched like children. So what is your experience in this situation?

    I have a little experience in taking care of the elderly whenever I would visit a nursing home with more than 20 patients. If the sanity of the aged is intact then I don't see any problem. But there are elders who are like brats that they act like spoiled kids. And if I were to choose in taking care a child or an elder I would probably choose the child because I know that I can bargain with a spoiled brat. I mean it is easier to convince the child than an elder who acts like a spoiled brat.

    Well, you have a point. However, certain adults can sometimes have distrustful motives - even though the elderly person is - at times - childish. I think certain caregivers can use childishness as a springboard for abuse, honestly. Of course, the scary thing about the abuse - is that the abusers think they're (the adults in-charge) totally normal people, lol.
