Determining When An Elderly Person Needs Assisted Living

Hat Tip: my brother Sandy in an e-mail....sorry, I don't know who this originated with so as to give full credit for that person.

Determining When An Elderly Person Needs Assisted Living: 

During a visit to my doctor, I asked him, "How do you determine whether or not an elderly person should be put in an assisted living home?" 

"Well," he said, "we fill up a bathtub with water and then we offer a teaspoon, a teacup and a bucket to the elderly person to empty the bathtub."


"Oh, I understand," I said. "A normal person would use the bucket because it is bigger than the spoon or the teacup."

"No" he said. "A normal person would pull the plug.”

Now, would  you like a room with a bed near the window?
