    Some Interesting People In My Assisted Living Facility

    Beth is a retired Realtor in her 70's and needs a walker. She is married to a doctor with ALZ that lives in a different facility across town. She goes to visit him twice a week.

    Kevin is a 54 year male that is wheel chair confined due to a stroke. We have the same Physical Therapist.

    Larry 79 & Elizabeth 75 are my next door neighbors in the adjoining apartment. She is wheel chair confined due to Multiple Sclerosis. Larry is OK with just a cane and is the CARETAKER for Liz.



    Thomas 94 lives alone like me and like me, just uses a walker. He is a WW 2 decorated Marine Vet.

    There are 120 people living here where I live. Some are in the Memory Loss and ALZ section and the rest in various apartments. Each has a story and at least I can hear some from those not in the Memory Loss & ALZ section.

    It's lovely that you have a mix of ages, and backgrounds as your neighbours Lon, it means you can have a great variance in conversations

    Since you are writing a book, you will have a lot of experiences to draw from.

    How is three meals a day in the dinning room working out? Do you sit and have to wait for a server to take your order? After ordering how long is the wait? can you see the menu before mealtime? Do you have a fixed table where only you sit? i don't like the idea of having to go to a dinning room three times a day. Do you like it?
