I want a drop in nursing home!

My mom is way too high needs for day care, but I wish there was something for her to stimulate her mind and provide a social outlet. It would be great if she could be fed her meals and allowed to nap most of the day but still be able to take part in any activities. And having access to the big soaker tub and the hair salon and other services would be wonderful too.
And then when she would be getting picked up in the afternoon all the families with a loved one with sundowners could be getting them dropped off for the night.
I know, dream on.

Doesn't this all sound like a five star resort service anyway? Forget the nursing homes. I'm going to the jacuzzi!

Ah, and there is mall security. The senior could be fitted with a special gps locator, so if they tried to leave the mall, security could re-direct them! And, they could carry little bitty coins to pay for their purchases ( sort of a pre-purchse that had to be approved by the caregiver when brought out to the car, sneaking back any unapproved pkgs.).
This is a good plan for the more functional elderly.
All I would be wanting is a place to lie down.

Back in the 80's and 90's it was popular to drop your teens off at the mall, now you want us to drop off our seniors?
Lets see, it is climate controlled, there is mall walking for exercise, the food court for meals, lots of handicapped accessible washrooms, people watching for entertainment, even piped in music. And best of all it doesn't cost anything unless you go on a shopping spree...Sendme, I think you are on to something!

Here I am, we will just re-name Starbucks as the new daycare center and nursing home, drop off your mom/dad, shop at Vons. Give them a kindle for christmas and set them down. With a little planning, this is free to sit here.

Maybe we all should just start dropping in to our neighbor's homes, supporting each other's lives. I could do that as long as I have something to give that they need.

As for donald, they should add an extra choice on the ballot: A vote of no confidence for all the candidates.

However, knowing my limitations, I am never going to be a part of this idea. It seems great for others and could be a worthy endeavor.

Saw Riverspring at night, drop in has everything. If there is a waiting list....the drop-in part should be next door and much smaller.

Since the visitor/guest/client would be short term, the grouping maybe should be small rooms just outside a huge dayroom. People will get lost. The more separate the rooms, the more 24 hr. Staff required?

Glad, I meant you could be in the planning, design, administration, not the daily hands on.

Yeah, donald can be the first client, we can set him straight, get him fixed up again, maybe he can run for office?

Send, no for me too much direct hands on after four years of 24/7. Franchise opportunities? Don't know at all about that, will think on it though. And financial backing? HEY, DONALD! You listening?
