JAILS AND NURSING HOMES
Ever thought what would happen if we put pensioners in jail and the criminals in nursing homes.
> Pensioners would have access to showers, hobbies, and walks.
> They would receive money instead of having to pay it out.
> They would have constant video monitoring, so they would be helped instantly
if they fell or needed assistance.
> Bedding would be washed twice a week and all clothing would be ironed
and returned to them.
> Someone would check on them every 20 minutes.
> All meals and snacks would be brought to them.
> They would have family visits in a suite built for that purpose.
> They would have access to a library, weight/fitness room, a pool, education,
spiritual counseling, and free admission to in-house concerts by nationally
recognized entertainment artists.
> Simple clothing, for example: shoes, slippers, PJ’s.
> Legal aid would be free upon request.
> There would be private, secure rooms provided for all with an outdoor exercise
yard complete with gardens.
> Each senior would have a private computer, TV, radio, and phone in their room
at no cost.
> They would receive daily phone calls.
> There would be a Board of Directors to hear any complaints and the rights organisations would fight for their rights and protection.
> The guards would have a code of conduct to be strictly adhered to with attorneys
available at no charge to protect the Pensioners and their families from abuse or neglect.
As for the criminals:
> They would receive cold food and receive showers once a week.
> They would be left alone and unsupervised.
> They would live in tiny rooms for which they would have to pay £5,000 per month.
> They would have no hope of ever getting out.
> Their families would not bother visiting them once they were "settled in", saying "it just upsets them"
Sorry. It's not really a joke, is it.
