With the cost of healthcare rising, some business are starting to downsize their employees and some are even thinking of closing. Hubby and I attended a PTA meeting last Tuesday and one the father who also attended sat by us. He said that his children used to go to St. Joseph when they were in pre-school but he had to pull them out there because the tuition fee is high and he can't afford it anymore. He said that he works as a lab technician at one of the hospitals in the area but afraid that he is soon going to lose his job as the said job is now being trained to do by the nurses. That is so sad to know that to cut the cost, some people will be losing their job.
Anyhow, We were supposed to visit my father-in-law today but there are some cars parked in front of his house to we decided to just go home. We will be visiting him again tomorrow after we bring our daughter to the hospital for her blood test. I commend my father-in-law's strong will to live by himself. For most seniors, living alone is quite hard to do but for Dad is the best option for him. He is almost 91 years old but he can still function very well in doing his household chores like cooking and cleaning. He does not want other people to do it for him. He no longer drives so we take turns in taking him to the store when he needs to buy something.
Skilled Nursing, assisted living apartments, home health care services, and rehabilitation are among the services that Country Club Retirement Campus provides to seniors. These type of services would be enjoyed by my FIL if he decided to just live in an assisted living apartments. The advantage of this is that, you can enjoy your life without worrying too much of home maintenance and other obligations when you are a home owner.
