An Alternative To An Assisted Living Facility - A Cruise Ship!

Lee Lindquist, M.D. and Robert Golub, M.D. published a comparison of people who checked into an assisted living facility vs. those who took a room on a cruise ship. Turns out that the cost is about the same -$3000 per month - but the cruise ship wins hands down. On a cruise ship all the meals are provided; you get housekeeping; medical care is available round the clock; and you'll be escorted to your meals. On top of all that you get new ports of call to visit and entertainment every evening. Finally, wouldn't it be much nicer to visit your loved one on a cruise than in a home? So - if a loved one needs assisted living, take a closer look at cruising!
