Humidity is high temps down. we had pork eggroll for lunch, mixed veggies, chicken noodle soup, and gummy brownies for dessert. I found dipped in coffee they were edible if gummy . Lunch was really pretty good, surprising that a lot of people were not there.I just do not see that since we are charged for room and board, how can we then afford to eat out all the time?Huong was not there and I did not really miss her at all. shame on me.

Lol. .sounds like Huong is a source of a lot of irritation. It is strange that people there would be eating out. I can see it would be a treat but most people in a living situation like that don't seem to be able to do it. Maybe for special occasions.

that's the difference between retirement centers like I'm in and nursing homes where the residents are frail ill people and have a big nursing staff here we have no nurses or doctors no hospital beds and wards. we are comparatively healthy and have no medical staff at all.

Yes, it does seem strange that some do not eat the food for which they pay. Well, a break from Huong every now and then is a well-deserved break.

My Mom says the same thing. With the cost of a nursing home being what it is, taking the meals... is something that I wouldn't want to pass up!

just to clear up things I am not in a nursing home, nursing homes have huge medic al staff. many nurses drs et., I am in a retirement center and we do not take ill people here as there is no medical staff at all. I would not ever have gone to a nursing home as Im not ill Im retired big difference..
