The Poor House & Hospital “Shot-Gun Wedding”

In 1965 a decision was made to support the elderly.  This support was not through the welfare system but instead through the healthcare system.

“A century ago they were called nursing homes because you received nursing care, and most of the time it was in a home like setting.  That was before [I guess] our civilization advanced [?] to the point where we created 15,000 nursing homes based on a hospital model.” – Lucille Hanscomb, Executive Director of Picker Institute.  A model where patients are first and human beings second.

I found two definitions for the word home. 1. The place one lives permanently, especially as a member of a family or household.  2.  An institution for people needing professional care or supervision. “An old people’s home”.

The shot-gun wedding between the poor house and the hospital was a marriage doomed for disaster and certainly guaranteed for divorce.  Why are we moving away from the nursing home institution?  Because it’s not working and it’s dehumanizing.  The baby boomers are saying, “This is unacceptable and it is not how I want to be treated when I get older.”

Since 2010 Montrose County, Colorado has had the highest net migration of people aged 65 and older.  Older residents continue to move to Montrose County and overall the Western Slope of Colorado seems to be an attractive place to move for those 65 and older.

The over-whelming statistical facts are that over 55 million adults are taking care of their parents, with over 2 million caregivers.  92% of these adults want to live in their own home as opposed to a nursing home.
