    Technology to enable seniors to stay in their homes, and avoid nursing homes, is great. I find myself watching the Xfinity home monitoring system commercials and thinking, “great, let’s sign mom & dad up for that.” But when it comes to helping the elderly stay in the family home, especially with stairs and outdoor maintenance, we need to be more pragmatic, and try to move to an attitude that moving to a condo (with elevator) is not a defeat.

      Moving to a condo is not what people want to do, so it IS a defeat.

      There’s no getting around that.

    Oh, and where’d the image come from? Looks European to me.

      The photographer (Miriam Doerr) is based in Germany, so I suspect that you are correct.
