Neighbors Hear Tears And Cries In The House Of The Retired Couple. What The Police Discover Is Shocking

We feel tired, we have wrinkles, we have our backs curved, the sight fails us, our skin wither, our hair abandons us and the little remaining becomes gray; such is the picture of old age, also called old age. The fourth age comes when the state of the person requires dependence on others. The dependence of the elderly is reflected in their inability to perform the simple actions of everyday life. A care system for these people is set up to provide them with moral and financial support.


A Swedish saying says: "young people go in bands, couples go two together, old with solitude". Even as a couple, older people feel lonely and in need of social relationships.

Many old couples find themselves living alone in a house, sharing a daily life increasingly difficult and precarious because of their state of health that is deteriorating day by day, and when loneliness takes over, a negative emotional state prevails, plunging these people into distress and anguish.

Their only meal was a piece of bread and withered grapes on the table.
