Kathleen Herring commented on AccessCity

I love this idea. I wonder what criteria you would include as being "disability friendly". Who would have access to the application? Would it be limited to certain disabilities?

Kathleen Herring commented on Treat Seniors Like Gymnasts: Pad Their Floors

I think the floors help seniors cushion their falls, but what happens when they fall and no one can help them up? Would the older adults also have ways to communicate to the staff that they have fallen?

Kathleen Herring commented on PEACH - Bringing dignity to end-of-life care for homeless individuals

Homeless shelters are now becoming retirement homes for the poor. Marginalized populations deserve dignity in death, but most of them will not find this end. I applaud this initiative and hope we can find ways to integrate the homeless population into society so they can receive better palliative care. Thanks for sharing!
