On the phone Adler wanted to tell his daughter how much he loves and appreciates it. he would think, "Oh, that's a sign of suicide," but it was during my stay, "says Ricard." I just left her and she always cryed all my life when I left and would always say , that I love you

This time was different. "" This time, "says Ricard," he was goodbye. "

When the plane landed, "Her mother, at the age of 72, tried to take her life." "I went home and I guess I just did not know how to deal with it, "says Adler for suicide attempt." It was just something I could get together … I just made a stupid mistake. I suppose I just wanted to quit because I felt I was not a good mother. And that's all I ever wanted to be.

The suicide rate is rising across the country, and this rise has been a particularly violent blow for the elderly in the country. Of the more than 47,000 suicides that occurred in 2017, these over 65 years represent more than 8500 of them, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Men aged 65 and over are at the highest risk of suicide, whereas the elderly 85 and older, regardless of gender, are the second most likely age group to die from suicide.

According to the US Census Bureau, there are 47.8 million people. In 2060 this figure is expected to reach 98.2 million

This refers to mental health experts such as Dr. Jerry Reed, who manages suicide, prevention of violence and injuries in the non-profit center for education development. "Probably, if we have a problem now, we may have a problem in the future if we do not pay attention," Reed said.

While the exact reasons for these figures remain unclear, experts suggest that older people are weaker and thus more vulnerable to self-inflicted harm. They can also be more isolated, making rescue more difficult and may even plan their trials more carefully. “/>

There are countless reasons why older adults are more vulnerable [susceptibletothe10nations leading cause of death.

One of the most widespread is loneliness. Adult adults often live in isolation and can struggle with the death of a husband or wife throughout their lives, or with the loss of other close relatives or friends . Studies show that severe loss is "disproportionately experienced by older people" and can often cause physical or mental illnesses such as "great depression and complex grief."

With children who are often far away from home, parents and grandparents can be left for miles, craving for the love and human ties that brings the family visit.
