Could you afford assisted living or... how did you get in a place? My mother has limited income and can’t pay the whole amount. I don’t know where to start. She insists on staying in a house, (that I own) but has limited mobility and increasingly falling. I live 2.5 hrs away.

Hi Lon:  Thank you so much for your post.  Would you mind talking about how you stay up-to-date and competent with new technologies (for example: are you self-taught or have you had any training)?  It all advances so quickly and it takes me a few years to catch up to what is available on the market.   

 

I will share that one of our local colleges offers a mentor-up program that has the college students working hands-on with older adults to demonstrate the capabilities of smart phones and computers.  Pretty cool.

ASSISTED LIVING

Message 13 of 13

My name is Lon and I am a 83 year old well traveled single male living alone in a one bed room/ one bath/living room/ kitchenette at a very nice Assisted Living Facility. Imade the arrangements for living here by my self instead of a Caretaker doing it. I would like to share some ideas with caretakers and other Forum members that currently reside in a AL Facility. First---Let me just say to those of you in your 50's 60's & 70's. KEEP AND EXPAND YOUR COMPUTER, I PHONE SKILLS. It will make getting old so much eaiser and rewarding.
