Noteworthy Email on Nursing Homes

Received this the other day and want to share:
Here's the way it really should be:

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

This would correct two things in one motion:

Seniors in jail 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 - I.e.. 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 in the nursing homes:

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!"
