Take heed: A Senior Warning

A Senior Warning

This is what all of you 70+ years old, and yet-to-be senior citizens, have to look forward to!

This is something that happened at an assisted living center.

The people who lived there have small apartments, but they all eat at
a central cafeteria. One morning one of the residents didn't show up
for breakfast so my wife went upstairs and knocked on his door to see
if everything was OK. She could hear him through the door, and he
said that he was running late and would be down shortly so she went
back to the dining area.

An hour later he still hadn't arrived, so she went back up towards his
room and she found him on the stairs. He was coming down the stairs
but was having a heck of time. He had a death grip on the hand rail
and seemed to have trouble getting his legs to work right. She told
him she was going to call an ambulance, but he told her no, he wasn't
in any pain and just wanted to have his breakfast.

So, she helped him the rest of the way down the stairs and he had his breakfast.

When he tried to return to his room he was completely unable to get up
even the first step, so they called an ambulance for him. A couple
hours later she called the hospital to see how he was doing.

The receptionist there said he was fine, he just had both of his legs in one leg of his boxer shorts.

I am sending this to my children so that they don’t sell the house before they know all the facts.
