The presentation will focus on a significant element of respect for the Elderly, namely ensuring that they receive proper care when they can no longer care for themselves. We are informed by examples in the Torah from Noah to Miriam. The presentation will review Jewish imperatives for caring for the Elderly and their practical application. We will discuss the overlap between the mitzvot of Kibud Av v'Eim (honouring one's parents) and Bikur Cholim (visiting the sick) and how they can be fulfilled on both an personal and communal basis.In this regard we will consider government policies regarding regulated long term care homes and home care and how we can make individual and systemic improvements.
