If Only All Nursing Homes Followed This High-Tech, High-Quality Model!

It’s a fear we all have—living out our final years in a nursing home. It can conjure up images of elders living out their “golden years” in a sad, sterile, institutional environment.
Lois Gallo definitely had that fear.
At 79, she’s an avid writer, retired professor and psychotherapist with two Master’s degrees, five children, nineteen grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren. She’s also living with Charcot-Marie-Tooth, a neuromuscular disease that has confined her to a wheelchair for the last 15 years. After years in an assisted living facility, her doctor told her she’d need to move to a nursing home – a thought that filled her with dread.
