Isn't one expected to support their parents or children if they have financial issues anywhere in this world?
Provided they're able to help. But careful here, FMF. Elderly care is a huuge issue in Europe, especially in countries where population is ageing, conditions in senior homes are not always good or too expensive etc etc You might need some immigrant to take care of your mom* or child while you're busily building your career or having a bliss in Mallorca......(you in general)
*as she deserves - constantly and at the highest standards meaning permanent attention....
Old age care is expensive, however people that own a house worth on average in the UK 250K expect the state to pay in full & then they can leave their children the 250k house. I think that care home fees should be collected at death if the assets exist. Care costs are an expense of living, no reason for the state to pick up the tab for the better off.
