Jail vs Nursing Home? (6/7/10)
Let’s put the seniors in jail, and the criminals in a nursing home.
This way the seniors would have access to showers, hobbies, walks, and they would receive unlimited free prescriptions, dental, medical treatment, wheelchairs etc. and they would receive money instead of paying it out.
They would have constant video monitoring, so they could be helped instantly, if they fell, or needed assistance.
Bedding would be washed twice a week, and all clothing would be ironed and returned to them.
A guard would check on them every 20 minutes, and bring their meals and snacks to their cells. They would have family visits in a suite built for that purpose.
They would have access to a library, weight room, spiritual counseling, pool and education.
Simple clothing, shoes, slippers, P.J.’s and legal aid would be free, on request.
Private, secure rooms for all, with an outdoor exercise yard, with gardens.
Each senior could have a P.C., a T.V., a radio and daily phone calls.
There would be a board of directors to hear complaints and the guards would have a code of conduct that would be strictly adhered to.
Justice for all.
