Often, sick and elderly people realize that their disability limits liveliness in their everyday lives, making living alone too challenging. They desire to change their conditions and stay in the warmth of home, yet, favor not to become a burden to their family. This is something that takes place to many of us at some point. It can be overwhelming to have a member of the family who needs constant care. Plenty of us simply doesn 't have enough time or the facilities to be available all the time, although we may want to.
In “A Rose for Emily”, the theme is change, and the elements that were seen throughout the story were character, point of view and setting. Change can hinder people because not everyone can accept what the future has to offer, for example, older people find it harder to accept help from others, and adapting can make them feel uneasy about their life in the future. In “A Rose for Emily”, change is seen throughout the story as well as the first element which is character. In the story, Miss Emily has been depicted as a strange, older woman who has never been married and cares for her father. Once her father passes, Miss Emily cannot grasp how to live on in her life because someone important to her is no longer with her.
She wants affection and love. She wants these things from the one person she can’t have it from, and this was caused by not getting the love and attention she deserved to get at home growing up. It is hard growing up with no parents and family to fall back on. Although many of us don’t realize it, not all of us have the perfect family life.

Most of us believe that our family is normal but with life experience we recognize that there is something unusual about our family life and upbringing. We all desire to have a healthy family but unfortunately we realize that many families are not happy. “Many families may seem normal at first glance. Scratch the surface, however, and some surprising relationships are exposed.” (The Scrivener 2006) In my opinion dysfunctional family is one in which parents are unable to fulfill their children’s psychological, emotional and physical needs. This causes the children to suffer from low self esteem and affect every aspect of their lives from jobs to financial stability to marriages.
Most would say that an older person who passes away has already lived their life, yet the pain it brings to family members is still difficult to deal with but may be easier to bare with because it is part of life. On the other hand, a child who dies at a young age has not yet lived their life or experienced anything. Therefore, it is a life changing experience that one may never overcome.

Another single parent, Sherlyn Clerigo shares the same thing with Jackie. She said “It's hard especially when she's sick - you really have to take leave from work until she gets well. It's also a big problem when your helper decides to quit her job and leave you without any replacement. These incidents always force me to use up my emergency leaves,” (Rodriguez, 2011). Those are more likely problems concerning being a single parent but that does not stop them from striving hard for their children to survive and be given the full support from a single

A dying grandparent means facing my mortality with new eyes. In the final weeks of my grams illness, I’d often look at my children and worry that my death would burden them in the same way. I worried that the fear and terror I felt in these last months would be their journey someday when their father and I face our health issues.
My life was never easy, my family was messed up, my country, my village, and my state was slowly falling apart, I never got to see my childrens face for the last time, I fought for my country and still not respect and no change.
