No Nursing Home for us !!!
NO NURSING HOME FOR US
No nursing home
for us. We are checking into the Holiday Inn!
With the average cost for a nursing home care costing $188.00 per day, there is
a better way when we get old & feeble.
We have already checked on reservations at the Holiday Inn. For a combined long
term stay discount and senior discount, it's $49.23 per night. That leaves
$138.77 a day for: Breakfast, lunch and dinner in any restaurant we want,
or room service, laundry, gratuities and special TV movies. Plus, they provide
a swimming pool, a workout room, a lounge and washer-dryer, etc. Most
have free toothpaste and razors, and all have free shampoo and soap.
$5 worth of
tips a day will have the entire staff scrambling to help you. They treat you
like a customer, not a patient.
There is a city bus stop out front, and seniors ride free. The handicap bus
will also pick you up (if you fake a decent limp).
To meet other
nice people, call a church bus on Sundays.
For a change of
scenery, take the airport shuttle bus and eat at one of the nice restaurants
there. While you're at the airport, fly somewhere. Otherwise, the cash keeps
It takes months
to get into decent nursing homes. Holiday Inn will take your reservation today.
And you are not stuck in one place forever, you can move from Inn to Inn, or
even from city to city. Want to see Hawaii ? They have a Holiday Inn there too.
TV broken? Light bulbs need changing? Need a mattress replaced? No problem.
They fix everything, and apologize for the inconvenience.
The Inn has a
night security person and daily room service. The maid checks to see if you are
ok. If not, they will call the undertaker or an ambulance. If you fall
and break a hip, Medicare will pay for the hip, and Holiday Inn will upgrade
you to a suite for the rest of your life.
And no worries
about visits from family. They will always be glad to find you, and probably
check in for a few days mini-vacation.
The grand kids can use the pool.
What more can
you ask for?
So, when we reach that golden age,
we'll face it with a grin.
