I had a nice EGGS BENEDICT breakfast this morning and sat at a table with Jim @ age 98 and George @ age 92 and myself @ age 84. Although the three of us live on the same floor of our Assisted Living Facility we were able to go to breakfast and leave our apartment un assisted by using our walkers. Residents with Dementia or Alzheimers live and eat in another part of the facility. There are any number of health and medical issues that cause some of us to live in AL . Jim & George agreed with me that our current living arrangement is so much better than living with our children or other family. There are a number of married residents living here with their spouse and neither being a care taker to the other. I write this post just to give other seniors one persons experience living in AL. Given my age and health I fully expect that I will eventually die at this facility or a hospital. Hope I can hang on as long as Jim & George.
