Right?? Elder care is not easy — it’s a full time job on its own, because at least toddlers are small enough you can swoop them away from danger, and toddlers don’t have a lifetime of memories of independence, and years of simmering resentment & anger about aging.

... I get stuff that would be Seen On TV, but with lower production values.

Trump's weird twitch response of calling strong women "nasty", over and over again, is such a specific and greasy tell. You can practically hear his mother hissing it over a teacup, searing into Donny's brain,.

If I had it to do over, I would have definitely found one that did advancing care. My grandmother’s were both great (the first was far, & management changed) but it would have been better for her if she never had to move again, regardless of her condition.

... well, a senior co-op is basically a nursing home or assisted living or group home. (There are some that are not-for-profit. The Masons run many.) And 95% of the people who work in them now are women, usually women of color.

/nods I’m so sorry, and I’m sad she mourns, but also glad she’s not being so worn down now.

Oh, yeah. I’m so grateful for assisted living & nursing homes. I *WOULD* prefer assisted living be the last move, and the care ramp up as the person needs. Private rooms mean better sleep; better sleep means dementia moves more slowly. Any aid available in home should be in AL.

Really, the Nation, just come out & say it: you have LONG favored fucking over GenXers & Millennials. You supported cutting education funding when we were in elementary school; favored rising college costs; favored destroying pensions in favor of 401k. Now you want us indentured.

And you’re definitely showing you favor forcing women out of the paid workforce, because elder care will fall primarily on women, either daughters or daughters-in-law. Men hardly step up on the Second Shift NOW. They won’t pick up a third. The Nation allied with Redpillers.

Seriously, Nation: why don’t you just say you’re in favor of feudalism? Of tying people to the land where they’re born, so they will not have to choose between making a living in the city or taking care of their parent who won’t leave Nowhere Middle.

Right?? And it ties people to the place where their elder lives, or forces the disruption of their elder’s social network. And even with significant elder day-centers... it’s women who will end up taking on this third shift.

In my favorite “if we survive this” fantasy, is put in charge of a new CFPB-like entity with a mandate to end voter suppression and ensure 100% ballot access. Then we just win because there are more of us. And then we can elect her president.

Agreed. Possibly a nitrogen tank. But on my schedule. Not because someone else decides I’m no longer worth the care.

That has potential, at least in suburban places. (Would make NIMBY heads explode, though.) (More reason to go with it.)
