Jails and Nursing Homes

Here's the way it should be:

Let's put the seniors in jail and the criminals in nursing homes.

This would correct two things in one motion:

Seniors would have access to showers, hobbies and walks.

They would receive unlimited free prescriptions, dental and medical
treatment, wheel chairs, etc.

They would receive money instead of having to pay it out.

They would have constant video montering, so they would 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.

All meals and snacks would be brought to them

They would have family visits in a suite built for that purpose.

They would have access to a library, weight/fitness room, spiritual counseling, a pool and education...and free admission to in-house concerts by nationally recognized entertainment artists.

Simple clothing - ie., shoes, slippers, pj's - and legal aid would be free, upon request.

There would be private, secure rooms provided for all with an outdoor exercise yard complete with gardens.

Each senior would have a P.C., T.V., phone and radio in their room at no cost.

They would receive daily phone calls.

There would be a board of directors to hear any complaints and the ACLU would fight for their rights and protection.

The guards would have a code of conduct to be strictly adhered to, with attorneys available, at no charge to protect the seniors and their families from abuse or neglect.

As for the criminals:

They would receive cold food.

They would be left alone and unsupervised.

They would receive showers once a week.

They would live in tiny rooms, for which they would have to pay $5,000 per month.

They would have no hope of ever getting out.

"Sounds like justice to me!"

I love this this is so true. Don't forget they would only be allowed to go to the bathroom when someone had time to let them, and would be forced to set in their own s#$% sometimes for hours:)
Those prisoners needing solitary confinement can go to the Alzheimer's unit.
Lmao cmagnum;)
How about people who doesn't work 40hrs. because they will loose state benefits. How about caregivers asking to pay them cash so they don't loose the state benefits and the elderly in Medicaid being reimbursed for $4,47/hr when the caregivers are asking for $15-$20/hr or $240-$250/day and the elderly is bed-bound, feeding assistance as well turning every 2hrs. 2 caregivers assistance during the day, total care.

Keep the conversation going (or start a new one)
