My neighbour Sandy Burke is trying out an old people's home. She is 92-93, quite alert and seems to be in good health. But she is almost blind and deaf, so it is difficult to watch TV. Audi books help a bit. She says that there is no activity in the place. But there was less when she was home. At least now, she meets a number of people at meals times and there are common rooms etc. being with or near the children might have helped but this is a somewhat independent culture. I wonder whether we will face similar problems if we live too long.
