Let’s put the seniors in jail - and the criminals in a nursing homes!
This way the seniors would have access to showers, hobbies, and walks. They’d receive unlimited free prescriptions, dental and medical treatment, wheel chairs, etc. and they’d receive money instead of paying it out.
They would have constant video monitoring so the could be helped instantly if they fell or needed assistance. Bedding would be washed twice a week, and all clothing would be ironed and returned to them.
A guard would check on them every 20 minutes and bring their meals and snacks to their cell. They would have family visits in a suite built for that purpose.
The seniors would have access to a library, weight room, spiritual counseling, pool and educational training.
Simple clothing, shoes, slippers, P.J.’s and legal aid would be free on request. Private secure rooms for all, with an exercise yard outdoors with gardens.
Each senior could have a P.C. a T.V., radio and daily phone calls.
There would be a board of directors to hear complaints, and guards would have a code of conduct that would be strictly adhered to.
The “criminals”, on the other hand, would get cold food, be left all alone and unsupervised.
They would have lights off at 8 p.m., and showers once a week. They would live in a tiny room and pay $5,000.00 per month and have no hope of ever getting out.
