As kids, our parents ensured that we grew up safe and healthy. As kids, we fell and hurt our selves even in the safest environs of our homes and schools. But then, as kids, issues were less complicated and we grew up enjoying every moment of our lives. Our parents were there for us till our wings got strong enough to fly and be on our own. It's now time for us to ensure that our parents' quality of life is preserved and live without being dependant due to disability and illness and live in dignity.
