Ueda says that one in three millennials taking care of a person with dementia has had to reduce their workhours, or lost benefits or their job altogether. Lyons describes care homes that he and her sister look at for their mother, and says some residents apparently had no visitors or their families only visited briefly. Collins says loneliness is worse for one’s health than smoking or obesity.
何が「気の毒」だと、ライオンズは言っていますか。
pity the poor millennial who’s expected to make decisions about someone else’s life when they’re still trying to plot out their own path.
高齢者介護について忘れがちなことの1つとしてコリンズが挙げているのは、何ですか。
One thing that we tend to forget when we’re talking about elder care is loneliness.
pity 気の毒に思う、哀れむ
Lyons is saying, “We should feel compassion and sympathy for these people, for their situation.” Likewise, you can say, “Ah, how pity Mark with his car troubles! He said he had to pay 300,000 yen to get it fixed.”
There’s also the expression “It’s a pity that -” meaning some situation is unfortunate, too bad.
Like, it’s a pity the company picnic ,ah, canceled. I was really looking forward to it.
plot out one’s own path 自分の道を計画して決める
Or, map out one’s own path. That would work too. Determine, plan the course we will take. For example, he’s been plotting out his career path for years. Or, I’m going to map out a course to opening my own consulting business.
