And a little food for thought...


Let's put the seniors in jail, and the criminals in a nursing home...

This way the seniors would have access to showers, hobbies, and walks, they'd receive unlimited free prescriptions, dental and medical treatment , wheel chairs etc. and they'd receive money instead of paying it out.

They would have constant video monitoring, so they could be helped instantly ,if they fell, or needed assistance. Bedding would be washed twice a week, and all clothing would be ironed and returned to them. A guard would check on them every 20 minutes, and bring their meals and snacks to their cell. They would have family visits in a suite built for that purpose. They would have access to a library, weight room,spiritual counselling, pool, and education.

Simple clothing , shoes, slippers, P.J.'s and legal aid would be free, on request. Private, secure rooms for all, with an exercise outdoor yard ,with gardens. Each senior could have a P.C. a T.V. radio, and daily phone calls. There would be a board of directors, to hear complaints, and the guards would have a code of conduct, that would be strictly adhered to.

The "criminals" would get cold food, be left all alone, and unsupervised. lights off at 8pm, and showers once a week; live in a tiny room , and pay $5000.00 per month and have no hope of ever getting out.

Justice for all...

I hope I get a place somewhere close to the kids!

True. My ex was a guard and the guards ate the same food as the prisoners. My grandmother was in a nursing home, a decent one, and was fed ravioli from a can and steak fingers and the like. Nothing like the food she was used to cooking and eating. :( And once I visited at 6:15, they had already put her gown on her and put her to bed. I wish my dad had let her come live with me like I wanted, but he refused. Thought it would be better because of "the round-the-clock" nurses. Not that they ever mistreated her, by any means, but she was a patient to them--- not their Mimi. Quality care starts with quality caring.

Well Mom,
We can look at it two ways, If you rob a bank and abscond with enough money, you will be able to hide away on some deserted island. If you get caught you will be put into the pokey.
Better look for a bank that has some cash on hand.

What and no mention that you are a new grandma?

Penny, if we live long enough, we will probably all end up in a home. My MIL is in a home, and she is very content. I will go screaming and fighting!

Phil, no robbing a bank, and I posted about the new one!
