Do You Really Care What “The Home” Looks Like Inside? — 8 Comments

  1. As much as I appreciate your post, I do not appreciate being demeaned. I am not a “poor clueless” interior design student, nor am I an idiot. I was trying to get real feedback instead of making something up. You may have experience on me but what I lack in experience I make up for in an every growing desire to learn more. I don’t expect someone of your closed mindedness to understand that.
    I do however, expect to be treated with respect for my ideas and not be put down because I am trying to educate myself.
    I do not think that the boomer generation is ready for “the home” as you so considerately put it, but I do believe that it is something that you should be thinking about. Not everyone is going to be able to afford home care. What about those who are less fortunate?
    Great idea about wireless broadband everywhere, but that was not my question. If you are referring to having wireless broadband in the facility itself then no need to worry that will for sure be there. We are in the 21st century after all. And after reading your very educational and objective response I will make sure that there is a meditation room and maybe some spa services to help in the removal of your grumpy attitude.

  2. I still think you are clueless.
    You know how to reach me.
    If you don’t want my feedback, I don’t care.

  3. You have no idea what I know and don’t know. You never even asked. My firm takes these old decrepid LSC building and makes them beautiful places to live in we don’t design concrete walls that people are living in today. I really can’t wait for you to be in that position. I would love to see how you feel living in one of these facilities it would be justice for sure. You are the most frustrating person that I have ever delt with. You should be removed from human contact to save the rest of us from your rudness. How the hell have you been married for so long? She must be deaf, mute and blind. I know exactly the room to design for you: padded walls and nothing but blackness because that is what you bring to every communication we have had.

    I really don’t feel the need to explain my project to you since you are such an asshole and I think that you are being this way just to get a rise out of me. Well this is the last time you will hear from me. I am better than you and always will be. Have fun in “the home” since your time is approaching faster and faster you old bastard!

  4. You are being incredibly rude to someone who appears to be seeking input from older and “suposedly wiser” individuals. What a fine example you set! Rather than attack her experience of only visiting bleak and depressing homes why not direct her to the “lovely places” you appear so familiar with? Personally, I agree with her that many care facilities are nothing more than human warehouses with little aesthetic appeal and limited activity options. She is not saying that everyone over 50 needs to “move to the home” she is simply looking to improve the experience for those who through their own decisions or through family intervention do make that choice.

  5. Oh, she’s a punk kid just screwing around at work and calling it research. I have no tolerance for such ignorance.
    How do you know what she is up to? You a savant?
    Fine, you agree. Now go away.
