Administrator, where are you?

One of the neat things about having electronic interaction with readers, especially in blogs, is the ease with which readers can “talk” to other readers and editors and vice-versa. This dialogue is a great source for story ideas for the magazine and a way to ensure that what’s on readers’ minds is what we produce in the print version of Long-Term Living.

Staff Writer Kevin Kolus posted a poll question on September 9 concerning your willingness to live in your own facility. One respondent didn’t have to imagine the experience. Because of a serious car accident, he or she went from administrator to resident for 2½ months. I don’t know about you, but I’d like to know more about his/her experience. The problem is, our polls are anonymous, so I have no way of contacting the administrator unless he or she writes back to me. If you’re out there and you’re reading this, please e-mail me at I’d like to talk to you about your experience! And everyone else, if you have an interesting story or an article idea, please send it my way. We’re very interested in your ideas.

I stayed in my facility for 24 hours and found it was comfortable and enjoyable. Staff didn't actuall provide care although they did check my vitals and check in on me like they do for any residents. So it wasn't an accurate reflection of what it would really be like to live in the facility.
The residents I ate with enjoyed it greatly and the activities were fun for the day though not what I usually do for entertainment.
I had a private room (huge plus) but our facility is primarily private rooms - not the norm in LTC.

Thanks for sharing information about your nursing home stay.

I think it's great that LTL tried to find you.
