I'm not sure I know what you're saying WarCulture.
Well after reading your replies, I assume its a moot point.
I have a friend who's dad couldn't keep his house together, multiple things failing. He negleted those things until they became more expensive to fix than the home was worth. His kids wanted(did) to sell the house and use the money to fund him a senior living arrangement.
He didn't want to go to a facility, so they spent a year looking for a really nice place considering they were all living with roomies etc. They finally found this place that had small (1br) homes surrounding a gated lake w/ ducks etc.
They took him there without acknowledging it as senior living, to see how he reacted to the environment. Needless to say, he knew immediately what it was and told them he loved it and there was relief on both sides I assume.
Not all senior living places are cramped and horrid hospital style buildings. Some are really nice and could please most people, but they're resticted to seniors to keep the experience calm and somber.
Again, a moot point after reading your replies.
