My nursing home would contain....

Here's a laundry list of what I would need if I were to move into communal elderly housing: Raised garden beds and hens in a coop. Bird feeders on pulleys so that the feeders would be easily gotten to. A little kitchen area for us inmates that were with it and needed some basic exercise: in this kitchen area would be a wheat grinder and a juicer or other gadget to make peanut butter with. For sure a blender and bowls and butter knives- nothing fancy, rolling pins. All the basics for making pie pastry and bread. A fridge that would have wheat germ and flax and sesame seeds in it- all healthy, life affirming goodies. And of course, there would be a room for literary readings. And books. Must have books. May Sarton and Emily Dickinson and Walt Whitman and of course Mary Oliver. Good, honest folks. And music. Must have music. For me, folk music. For you: you tell me?? What do you think? We have a few more years. Anyone want to join me in my ark? Want to climb aboard? Run away? Far away?

@sallypup I think almost all kinds as i never read a sci-fi book and would like to try them. The same with fantasy never read one but would like to try them I think my ideal reading room would let me explore all genres. I would like to explore Philosophy more in the future.

In my view, there, it would lack the computer area (the technological area). However, although I am not old, I will not go into a communal elderly housing, but in a therapeutic community (for lifetime!), the day that I will miss my parents. I do not work and I'm mental disabled (75%)

I feel like someday i will be in a nursing home, having no children of my own i do not see anyone taking me in. I just hope that i have my old family photos, and my genealogy stuff, i hope i am allowed a laptop with internet access, i hope i am allowed to scrapbook and write, i hope i do not have a annoying roomate.

If ever i needed a home for the elderly mine would need a kitchen that offered anything and everything anyone craves. a movie hall to watch videos, a dancing hall to get moving. music to stream each and every day and oh, yes, a bowling alley. Then perhaps I could survive.
