> 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 monitoring, so they would be helped instantly
> if they fell or needed assistance.
>Bedding & clothing would be washed & ironed twice a week
> 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.
>Each senior would have a P.C., T.V., phone and radio complete with gardens
> 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!"
