Lois Winters is the only other SO member that I know of that lives in a first class Assisted Living Facility and she would concur with my post I'm sure. I write this for the benefit of some of you that will reach the point in your life of needing some kind of assisted living. I have missed seeing a few fellow residents that I would see at meals periodically. When I enquired about them I was told that they moved out. When I asked why I was told it was $$$. I don't know the details or where they moved to. A number of residents have told me that they sold their homes and use the interest on the proceeds in addition to Social Security & private pensions. If I live to 95 as did my mother and father my assisted living costs will be in excess of $800,000. I am OK with that.
