    The older folk needs to find someone trustworthy to help them run errands, with all the illnesses going around it is not safe for them to be traveling alone.

      People who are safe and trustworthy are hard to find. That is why the old people go it alone.

      How does this make Barbados bad. People die every day. I didn’t know we had assigned places to die. You leave home you don’t know if you will return.

    • Joel C. Payne

      It seem that if you on the ground waiting for ambulance care in Barbados that it still a death sentence unless someone take up you and drive you.

    we all have to be careful the days are very heated.

  27. N. Lucas December 14, 2014 at 7:15 pm

    Why does this happen that the elderly always die either walking or at a bus top around this time of year. My condolences to this gentleman’s family.

    Could it be that they were sick and didn’t say anything, because some men don’t really like to complain when they are sick, my sympathy to the family.

    This could also be a case of men that do not like going to the Doctor and have underlying issues that are not deal with. The problem as well is that even if they go to the Doctor they seldom take their medication properly if at all and seldom ever follow up. As soon as they feel a little better they put illness on the back burner.

    It is not matter about going to the hospital there are people getting headaches, vomiting etc and are home treating themselves and the chickunguna is weighing heavily on their underlying illness and some are not making it.
