The Industry of Dissolving Portraits

Nursing homes have now become a growing industry in Pakistan, and this phenomenon is rising partly because of a rise in globalization, modernization, and urbanization. It is true that industrialization and modernization have created new job opportunities, but at the same time, it has also created a vacuum for elderly folks as they are left behind at native homes by their children.

The familial system disparity has also declined, and the state of older people has been compromised and undermined by modernization. In the coming years, more parents and seniors will land up in nursing homes as the society evolves and the norms mold with the new generation paradigm.

Due to a lack of structure, professional staff and unequipped facilities in Pakistan, nursing homes have become deeply rooted in the feeling that depicts the lack of purpose in life. In the absence of a social support system, the residents of nursing homes are the vulnerable victims of depression extended by the emotional consciousness in the spam of isolation and loneliness.

It’s the need of the hour that Pakistani nursing home department as well as profit, and non-profit organizations start working on researching and reforming the structure of nursing homes with the specialized skilled team in the field of gerontology. This issue needs proper attention. Otherwise it will become the corporate commercial industry similar to Pakistani education and health sector.
