|No nursing home for us. We're checking into the
Holiday Inn! With the average cost for a nursing home
per day reaching $188.00, there is a better way when
we get old & feeble. I have already checked on
reservations at the Holiday Inn. For a combined long
term stay discount and senior discount, it's $49.23
per night. That leaves $138.77 a day!
1. Breakfast, lunch and dinner in any restaurant I
want, or room service.
2. Laundry, gratuities and special TV movies. Plus,
they provide a swimming pool, a workout room, a
lounge, washer, dryer, etc. Most have free toothpaste
and razors, and all have free shampoo and soap. They
treat you like a customer, not a patient. $5 worth of
tips a day will have the entire staff scrambling to
There is a city bus stop out front, and seniors ride
free. To meet other nice people, call a church bus on
Sundays. 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 are not
stuck in one place forever, you can move from Inn to
Inn, or even from city to city. Want to see Hawaii?
They have a Holiday Inn there too. TV broken? Light
bulbs need changing? Need a mattress
replaced? No problem. They fix everything, and
apologize for the inconvenience. The Inn has a night
security person and daily room service. The maid
checks to see if you are OK. If not, they will call
the undertaker or an ambulance.
If you fall and break a hip, Medicare will pay for the
hip, and Holiday Inn will upgrade you to a suite for
the rest of your life. 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 grandkids can use the pool. What more can you ask
So, when I reach the golden age I'll face it with a
grin. Just forward all my email to: me@Holiday.Inn
