The reality is that not everyone is able to care for themselves in their old age. This is by no fault of their own; some people are the victims of diseases like Alzheimer’s, and for reasons that are still not fully understood, some are not. This can be a difficult thing for anyone to accept. But it’s also difficult for the loved ones of the elderly to comprehend. It’s hard enough to accept that a person you love is no longer able to care for themselves — what do you do next?

Your first apartment, whether it be townhomes through student housing in college or just a small apartment downtown, was probably a disaster. You never cleaned anything, you didn’t even own a dish to wash, you thought that nasty smell was just the way the world smelled, and you slept on a little pullout couch that was also part desk, part TV stand, and part bathroom for those wild nights.

About 78% of adults admit they prefer fresh sheets on their beds, to the point that that good clean smell helps them have a more comfortable night’s sleep. This simple pleasure depends entirely on one’s attitude about laundry. Stripping the bed and stuffing the sheets into the washer certainly does not sound as though it is a lot of work.
