    Default No nursing home for me!

    No nursing home for me. I'll be checking into a Holiday Inn! With the average cost for a nursing home care costing $188.00 per day, there is a better way when we get old and too feeble. I've already checked on reservations at the Holiday Inn.

    For a combined long-term stay discount and senior discount, it's $59.23 per night. Breakfast is included, and some have happy hours in the afternoon.

    That leaves $128.77 a day for lunch and dinner in any restaurant we want, or room service, laundry, gratuities and special TV movies.

    Plus, they provide a spa, swimming pool, gym, a lounge and washer-dryer, etc.

    Most have free toothpaste and razors, and all have free shampoo and soap.

    $5 worth of tips a day and you'll have the entire staff scrambling to help you.

    They treat you like a customer, not a patient.

    There's a bus stop out front, and seniors ride free.

    For a change of scenery, take the airport shuttle bus and eat at one of the nice restaurants there.

    While you're at the airport, fly somewhere. Otherwise, the cash keeps building up.

    It takes months to get into decent nursing homes. Holiday Inn will take your reservation today.

    And you're not stuck in one place forever -you can move from Inn to Inn, or even from city to city.

    Want to see Scotland ? They have Holiday Inn there too.

    TV broken? Light bulbs need changing? Need a mattress replaced? No problem. They fix everything, and apologize for the inconvenience.

    room service.

    And no worries about visits from family. They will always be glad to find you, and probably check in for a few days mini-vacation.

    The Inn has a night security person and daily room service. The maid checks to see if you are OK. If not, they'll call an ambulance. . .or the undertaker

    The grand-kids can use the pool.

    What more could I ask for?

    Well, I gots to admit, racing wheel chairs down the hallway of some rest home wasn't my idea of fun.
