      "But the social workers, geriatricians, retirement community administrators and family members heís been talking to since 2002 universally believe this: The sheer volume of objects in a typical household, the enormous physical and cognitive effort involved in sorting out whatís essential, the psychological toll of parting with whatís disposable ó all can lead to a kind of paralysis that keeps seniors in place, even when the place isnít the best place." 09-10

  4. Selecting an Assisted Living Facility (U.S. News)
      "As people age and need more help with daily activities, such as bathing or taking medication, moving to a facility that provides some assistance, without sacrificing independence, may be an option. This type of environment, known as assisted living, has emerged in the past two decades as an increasingly available option for housing and long-term care. In 1999, one third of the facilities that offered assisted living services had been in existence for less than five years, and 60 percent had existed for less than a decade, according to research published in January in the journal Health Affairs." 05-10
