My wife and I have come to our native place in Guntur, Andhra Pradesh, after a long time, to attend a family wedding. We were here earlier for almost 9 months, taking care of my in-laws who were suffering from multiple chronic ailments.
Our whole family has been taking turns to take care of my elderly parents in law. In fact, my elder sister-in-law has moved residence from Delhi to Guntur to be with them. On 14th March 2020, we had left for our home in Goa. We could not return to Guntur earlier to take care of the old couple as we were held up in Goa due to the lockdown and travel restrictions.
This time we plan to stay here with them for at least a month and look after them. And we hope that this tradition will continue with one offspring or another being around to care for them.
It is a happy family who can provide compassionate and wise care for their elderly parents.
