YOUR PERSONAL GPS
You might reach  your life's destination better if you remember
CARING FOR OUR SENIORS IS PERHAPS THE GREATEST RESPONSIBILITY
WE HAVE.   THOSE WHO WALKED BEFORE US HAVE GIVEN SO MUCH
AND MADE POSSIBLE THE LIFE WE LIVE TODAY - John Hoeven

FIVE SIMPLE RULES FOR CARING FOR THE ELDERLY
LISTEN
ALWAYS BE THERE
MAKE THEM SMILE
DON'T LIE
PROTECT THEM

There comes a time in your life
 when you realize:

Who matters
Who never did
Who won't anymore
Who always will

So, don't worry about people from your past.
There's a reason they didn't make it
 to your future


A Metlife survey indicates the highest 
Daily rates for nursing home care was $655 in Alaska.

The average cost for nursing home care being $188 per day, consider a better way for the eldery.  Combining a long term stay discount and a senior discount, a senior can stay in a Holiday Inn for only $59.23 per night.

That low price includes breakfast and some have happy hours in the afternoon.  That leaves $128.77 a day for lunch and dinner in any restaurant we want, or room service, laundry, gratuities and special movies.



The Holiday Inn will also provide a spa, swimming pool, a workout room, a lounge, free toothpaste, razors, shampoo, soap and maid service.

For a $5 tip you will have the entire staff scrambling to help you.  They will treat you like an important guest, not a patient. There is a bus stop right out front and a handicap bus will also pick you up--if you can fake a decent limp--I do it with a cane.  Take the free airport shuttle bus and fly someplace.

Living in a motel, you will meet lively people just like yourself.  Always wanted to see Hawaii?  Hey! They have a Holiday Inn waiting for you.




TV broken, light bulb need changing, mattress need replaced?  No problem.  Don't worry about seeing the family, they will wear out their welcome.


GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR'S

GOD BLESS THE USA
