Lynn's Comments: I've spent a great deal of time now visiting my aunt in a senior's residence, and it's clear to me that when you are ready to have a small, secure home with medical help and regular prepared meals, you are definitely ready! The one thing my aunt is saddened by is the strangeness of being surrounded by very old people all the time! The only young people are staff members and visitors. When I take her into town for a change of scene, she will say, "This is normal! Everyone is here...young, old, and in between!"
