There is a piece of news from China Daily about “Lonely deaths surge in S Korea”.
A growing number of South Koreans are dying alone. Lonely deaths surged from 682 in 2011 to 1088 in 2014, according to government statistics. Families have come under strain from economic and demographic upheaval. The long-cherished traditional family structure is changing. The poor and old have nowhere to go. Some even die without a funeral. This symbolizes the crumbling of a Confucian social contract Koreans have lived by for ages. South Korea has one of the fastest aging societies in the world.
Elderly people is becoming the biggest problem in society, we need to pay more attention to the caring of our elderly people. Who should be responsible for our elderly people? Firstly, I think governments should improve public welfare that includes medical assistance, pension services and rural minimum living allowances. Secondly, younger people should raise the awareness of respecting and caring the aged people. We should undertake our responsibility to create the best environment for them. We need to spend our time to talk and accompany them if we are available.
We can watch and supervise elderly people by motion sensor or surveillance camera. For modern surveillance cameras, mostly have the motion detection function that can show them how often they go to the bedroom, bathroom and kitchen then the supervisor will know them health status. We can also talk and watch them through the camera on smart phone. Here we recommend our surveillance product—indoor IP camera for you as reference.
