I think its impossible to say how its going to be for us in old age because we dont know at this moment in time the extent of our deterioration or where our family are going to be when we reach the end. You can make a flimsy plan of how you would like it to be but you cant predict the future.

Well they say you can be alone in a crowd, that goes for young and old.

For me I am not too bothered if I don't have a partner into or during proper old age, as long as I can get to the shops or have something delivered and am not too infirm.

After all we all die.

I'm determined to die in the middle of the sales floor on a Tuesday morning - that'll have 'em.
Knew someone whose uncle died in Harrods Food Hall - now that's class....................

most people fear dying alone as in some cases it can take several days!.
ie stroke,heartattack, etc.
mind you odds wont improve much if you end up in nhs "departure lounge" at least you wont die alone!

My beloved Nan died last week. Her husband of 60 years and 2 of her children by her side. So many family members came to visit her while she was in hospital the nurse commented she had never seen the like. She was so loved by everyone.
I don't want to be alone when I get old.

reading through the posts it really surprises me how many people have said it doesn't bother them.
It scares the living shite out of me to think I might be old and alone :S

^^^ It is lovely to read that.
This day and age is far removed from what used to be in years gone by for many of us. These days kids move away for work or are too busy with their own lives to want it disrupted by looking after their parents in their last years. Today very many elderly people do not see anyone cross their door for weeks at a time,save for maybe a home care worker.

When my time is come, I have absolutely no mental issues about shuffling off on my own - at least I won't have someone in my left ear demanding that I use the satnav.........
