I generally like your programs very much but found the last one on aging very lacking...It was especially distressing to think that the NYT blogger on the subject did not even mention the options of continuing care communities. Many of us who join communities such as the Kendal communities find a very meaningful life...almost like being back in college. We know that as we age the burden of care giving will not fall on our children, though of course we expect interaction. Some of us think this is the best thing we have ever done for our children. There are many options for us to consider rationally as we age for our future care and death, and we have a great deal of help in doing it. Alzheimer patients remain part of the community for as long as possible. Local residents join hospice workers to help people in the last stage of life. Medical services as well as housekeeping services, mainenance, etc. all available.
