Dear Maryalice, I really like this idea. I visited some retirement homes. Even though staff and management tries to provide a nice environment, it nevertheless feels like a kind of hospital. Staff members have a lot of formal administrative routines, medication plans to stick to and "standard" care to do. It's not like living in a community or living at home. I think it's worth thinking about how to make retirement homes more homelike. Thanks for sharing your input.
