Dear Dr. Thomas,
You have mentored me from a distance for about 8 years. I can not tell you how much I admire the restructuring of Elder Care Homes. Thank you for your dedication to our valuable population of elders. I am a Gerontologist and first found your Eden Alternatives while I worked for our Area Agency on Aging. I just wanted to say thank you for all you have done! Cecille Noto, NCG

Thank you so very much for all you have done for our elder population. The world needs more people to stand up and fight for them. I visit yoursite daily, and if it was not for Changing Aging, I don't know how long it would have been before I found TIME GOES BY.

I notice home care companies starting up here in western wa. Considering the full employment gap in the U.S., the fulfillment of home care goals, the unemployment situation might fade away. Now I'm searching for the other top six or seven new industries staring us in the face and watching them mature.

There is no excuse for the elderly to be denied the dignity of aging. Bless you all.

I'm so pleased to have found this blog again - full of links, wisdom, great ideas.

I have been helping our county Human services adviser, get services and activities re-instead in our senior center. (I'm 84 and have a spinal cord injury.)The present coordinator has stripped our county's centers of everything. Federal grant money isn't being used for the seniors. We have contacted commissioners, State DAAS and local authorities and only get lies. The state DAAS director wrote me a SEVEN page letter blaming me for the problems. I was only the messenger.
It's a big cover up and This is an urgent matter. NO One will help us. We need rides to medical appts (there is NO other transportation to doctors one and a half hours away. The meals are inedible (they took out the steam table that kept the food at a safe temp.) etc., etc. I'm hoping that you know someone with enough clout who will work with us in getting our senior center back.

I believe Dr. Thomas effort should be appreciated and treasure as he share his expertise to everyone.
