KAMLOOPS — When I get old, I’d like certain things: a bath or shower every day, all my faculties, and a comfortable bed in my own home.
The first is non-negotiable. The second is beyond my control. As for the third, if I can’t be in my own home, I’d at least like to know who my landlord is.
These things don’t seem too much to ask, but this week we were reminded we can’t take anything for granted. This week we’re hearing about seniors who can’t get a bath, and their retirement homes being bought by somebody who lives in Beijing.
