I have been thinking about my future. I am bedridden most of the year with a summertime reprieve, mild though. I need help with shopping, cooking, cleaning, yardwork, painting, etc. Wouldn't it be nice for a group of us to band together and live in small aprtments with staff on hand to help with errands, shopping, driving us, help with the heavy stuff....laundry...we would still have our privacy but have a social support network available 24/7....we could all help each other with the things we can still do....like gardening to make the outside look nice...and fixing up stuff in the apartments, someone might be around to help with that task....pets would have to be allowed since many of us need our little friends. I bet we could get hairdressers to come to our community room in our imaginary apartment and cut everyones hair all in one trip! And we wouldn't have to leave our home to get a haircut. We could probably order groceries in bulk to be delivered. Has anyone thought about the future of housing for people ike us? Low income, need assistance, ill, isolated and lonely....we could locate it in a retirement area since we need similiar help.....what do y'all think?
