It would be really cool if every single community in every single company made the commitment to take in just one resident who cannot afford full freight.

It is with sadness that I will have to take George out of the Alzheimer program . . . even though he has only been in for a month.
This is crazy.
I was not given any help from the grants I applied for and the income George is receiving is simply not enough to keep up with household expenses.
I have been given a gift by the TN Respite Coalition of a senior companion and am on the waiting list, which they said should come soon.
If anything opens up for me I will be back and or if anything comes up from major sales of George’s estate I will be in touch.
I am writing this blog post from Nashville where I am attending a board meeting and strategic planning session for Abe’s Garden, a national Alzheimer demonstration community, and the team shared this email with me.
It’s Just Not Enough
Our Challenge and Opportunity
I find myself thinking that as an industry it would be really cool if every single community in every single company made the commitment to take in just one resident who cannot afford full freight. Think about it; with something like 9,000 senior communities in this country, we could make a nice dent in the affordability problem.
If we are honest it would also be a great positive story to tell about the industry.
