I read this post every day but am a bit confused by the acronyms that are used... Is there a list somewhere that I could read through to see what they mean?

WyoNana, funny! I would never have thought of it as Saturday Nite Live because I've never watched that show.... Whenever I saw SNF, I would think "Snafu".

Thanks so much for all the info!! Now I know SNF has nothing to do with Saturday Nite Live...maybe Sat Nite Fiasco.

WyoNana, i know what you mean. When I first came onto the forum and saw IL, NH, and AL, I honestly thought why are elders all moving to Illinois, New Hampshire, and Alabama???

NH = Nursing Home
AL = Assisted Living
Alz = Alzheimers
UTI - Urinary Tract Infection
POA = Power of Attorney
DPOA = Durable Power of Attorney

There are more, but that will get you started.
