Something I hadn't given a lot of thought about - but should - has been well addressed by cnn.com. In "Culture clashes when old moves in with older." Aging boomers have different ideas about what they want in a facility than the older generation, many of whom are still fairly active into their 90s.
"Culture Clashes" looks into this problem. It begins:
"SAN FRANCISCO, California (AP) -- At retirement communities around the United States, a gap is opening between the 90-year-olds and the comparatively spry 70-year-old newcomers.
They are clashing over the food, the conversion of tea rooms into coffee bars, higher monthly fees for weight rooms, roomier quarters and computer-ready apartments demanded by the younger, more active set.
And the tension is expected to grow as more baby boomers enter their golden years. They are expected to be healthier and more active than the generation before them. By 2030, one in five U.S. residents is expected to be 65 and older."
