No nursing home for me.. I am checking into the Holiday Inn!
With the average cost for a nursing home care costing £150 per day, there is a better way when we get old and feeble.
I have already checked on reservations at the Holiday Inn. For a combined long term stay discount and OAP discount, it's £29 per night. That leaves £119 a day for breakfast, lunch and dinner in any restaurant I want, or room service, laundry, gratuities and special TV movies Plus,
they provide a spa, swimming pool, a workout room, a lounge and
washer-dryer, etc ........ Most have free toothpaste and razors, and all
have free shampoo and soap. £5 worth of tips a day will have the entire staff scrambling to help you.
They treat you like a customer, not a patient. There is a will be a bus stop out front, and OAP;s ride free. The dial a bus will also pick you up (if you fake a decent limp).
To meet other nice people, call a church bus on Sundays.
For a change of scenery,boOK a hotel at airport take the airport shuttle bus and eat at one of the nice restaurants there. While you're at the airport, fly somewhere. Otherwise, the cash keeps building up.
It takes months to get into decent nursing homes. Holiday Inn will take your reservation today. And you are not stuck in one place forever, you can move from Inn to Inn, or even from city to city. Want to see Hawaii? They have a Holiday Inn there too.
TV broken? Light bulbs need changing? Need a mattress replaced? No problem. They fix everything, and apologise for the inconvenience.
The Inn has a night security person and daily room service. The maid
checks to see if you are ok. If not, they will call the undertaker or an
ambulance. If you fall and break a hip, the NHS will pay for the hip, and
Holiday Inn will upgrade you to a suite for the rest of your life. And no worries about visits from family. They will always be glad to find
you, and probably check in for a few days mini- break.
The grand kids can use the pool.
What more can you ask for?
