What now? Patience in trying to build a viable peaceful home in the city… The Failure of this type of “independent living.”

“Deal Breakers”

  1. Dailey Living Situation in EPA

 

  1. Unable to adjust sleeping cycle (sleeping hours shorter and shorter)

 

  1. Unable to have a service-assistant dog

 

  1. Unable to eat 4-6 times a day

 

  1. No, no, no, morning hot showers

 

  1. Not permitted kitchen/cooking privileges

 

  1. Too much snoring

 

  1. Too much Transactional Analysis as a child; Staff not acting adult; Parental Style does not explain reasons or rationale.

 

  1. No transportation offered and complaining when given ride from surgery as required by hospital and requested in-writing a week in-advance.

 

  1. Alleged fire safety violations blamed on particular resident.

 

  1. Not compensated for living in Room 2 with allergens and other hazards and asked/demanded to take responsibility and “set THE tone”

 

  1. No laundry or means to wear clean clothing

 

  1. Noisy neighbors and dangerous dogs

 

Lesser Causes for seeking another living arrangement:

Location, location, location…

No parking for the :Santa Maria”

Strange concept not working for self and others

Management is in-flexible with “rules”

No storage available

Added costs for clubs, incidentals, lunches. Sunshine, utilities, etc.

No laundry facilities

Poorly-trained staff

No emergency-contingency plan

No means of transportation

Her interpretation of “independent living” significantly different than mine!
