Life and death in assisted living

Frontline on PBS recently aired a documentary called "Life and Death in Assisted Living" that discussed problems with assisted living facilities. The documentary focused on a company called Emeritus, but the problems with Emeritus are not unique within the assisted living industry. I recommend watching it. 8O

Inventor - Question for the Forum

Hello,

My name is Vadim. I'm a biomedical engineer and inventor. I've designed and 3d printed a set of ergonomic utensils for my arthritic grandmother. Unlike other "ergonomic" utensils available, my design requires almost no hand strength or dexterity to eat comfortably.

I'm considering making these into a product and am very interested in getting feedback on my design from people living with MS. If you're in the New York metro area (preferably on Long ...

Assistance/Tax Deductions for Air Conditioning?

Hi All!

Just wondering if there are any tax breaks or organizations that offer financial assistance towards the purchase/installation of central air? Like many with MS the heat just torments my hubby so we have multiple window units running all the time and would like to simplify by getting central air installed, but its pricey .

We live in Massachusetts.

If anyone has any suggestions we'd appreciate it!

Thanks.

I have chronic neuropathic ...
