Nursing Homes in 2069

PBC Blog General 2 (14)Recently, I took my mother to visit the skilled nursing and long-term care facility that she went into when she had her stroke.  She was thrilled to see the friends she made, both staff and patients when she visited.  Then while standing listening to golden oldies over the speaker in the dining hall as she talked to her favorite kitchen worker, and my mind began to wonder…

What will nursing homes be like for my generation?

Video or APP games will be our BINGO –  I don’t think we will find full satisfaction BINGO.  But leaderboards within the nursing home charting patient progress in Words with Friends, Candy Crush, Angry Birds, Zelda, or Super Mario.

Plant-based, Paleo, Keto, Pescatarian, Vegan, and Vegetarian Diets – Many are adopting new lifestyles and choices of living.  I just hope Ensure is working on some new dairy-free recipes.

Wireless Everything – Sure there may still be the need to buttons or remotes.  However, most electronic may be voice activated or be controlled by another smart device.

Different Dining Music – In the dining area instead of Aretha Franklin, Michael Jackson, Beyonce, Green Day, or N’SYNC will probably be streaming over the speakers.

Virtual Pets – Being that many nursing homes don’t allow pets to be long term guests; I suspect many will have virtual pets that patients take of on their watch, tablet, phone or other device.

Beauty Salon Extravaganzas –  Also, I think the salons inside of facilities would need a wide variety of color options for dying hair.  In addition, they should be prepared for men and women getting manicures and pedicures.

Alternative Medicine Practitioners on Staff –  Due to the increasing demand for natural remedies I think these practitioners may find a home in these facilities.

Just random thought, but I would like to know your thoughts on this.

I am sure I missed something…what do you think nursing homes will be like?  Leave your reply below!

A Poem: So Sick & Tired!

For those who have or had toxic family, friends or people in their lives…


PBC Blog General 2 (13).pngSo Sick & Tired!

by Cortney of Peaces by Cortney

 

My mother always said, “no one has to tell you what to do when you are sick and tired.”

She is right and I got sick and tired.

Sick of them acting one way here and another there.

Then have another change of heart as if they colored their hair,

Who are you now? Your heart has been dyed black.

No, we can’t go back to the way things were.

Your toxic fumes and furry have overtaken my system.

No longer can I inhale your exhaust of lies, drama, and deceit.

It makes me sick and I am tired.

Today is the day and I am the one.

No longer, no more, for I am done.
