The township Board of Supervisors last night approved a plan to build an assisted-living facility on the east side of Route 202, across from Stetson Middle School. The go-ahead for the preliminary land development plan seems to indicate that the future of the 70-acre property may finally be set after more than a decade of wrangling between the township and property owner Joseph McCawley. The assisted-living facility is one of several uses planned for 20 acres of the tract that McCawley has reserved for commercial development.

Developer Vincent DeLuca, of DeLuca Enterprises, presented his proposal for the facility to be built on a 9.7-acre residentially zoned property to the board Monday night The facility would provide a moderate level of care for older people who, for the most part, can look after themselves but need help with bathing and other tasks, said Tony Gennotti, director of operations at a Northampton Township facility developed by DeLuca five years ago. According to state regulations, such facilities do not require medical personnel, Gennotti said, though his facility provides nurses.

The Bensalem assisted-living facility where an 81-year-old woman with dementia wandered off, and was later found dead two miles away, has filed an appeal of its license revocation. Betty Trainer left the NewSeasons at Hill House grounds, 6400 Hulmeville Rd., on June 26 after a defective smoke detector caused an evacuation. Hill House was operating on a provisional license at the time. On July 11, the state Department of Public Welfare revoked the facility's license based on the Trainer case and three other incidents since December - all of which, it said, showed that residents were not properly supervised.

Anyone who has ever burned his or her mouth on hot food or drink can try to imagine the horrifying last days of Ronald Myers. But, try as I may, the tragedy remains completely incomprehensible. Myers, 79, had a cup of boiling-hot cereal poured into his mouth by an aide at a Montgomery County assisted-living facility, according to authorities. Myers, who had Alzheimer's disease and could not feed himself, suffered burns to his lips, tongue, mouth, and throat. He died two weeks later.

More than three months ago, residents came out in full force to express their concerns over a zoning ordinance change that could have allowed assisted living in a residential area.

This time, Seldin is asking for the site to be redesignated as institutional.

But mostly, Maggie spends her days indoors, taking long naps and visiting with her friends at WovenHearts, an assisted-care facility in Deptford. "She is so nice," said Madeline Hand, 71, who had just sat down to coffee and toast. "She listens to you and understands what you say.

In an aggressive move to help remedy its deep financial woes, the Archdiocese of Philadelphia said Tuesday that it had put its six nursing homes up for sale. The archdiocese also said it would attempt to lease out 11 cemeteries and two parcels that could be used as cemeteries. In addition, the archdiocese said it would try to outsource the management of the cemeteries, a move that could cut costs and increase revenue. "Our difficult financial situation must be addressed and the actions that we need to take may be painful ones," Archbishop Charles J. Chaput said in a news release.

LOOMIS, Calif. - It's a story that plays out often in California once the fall rainy season starts and mushrooms sprout: someone unintentionally picks and eats a poisonous variety, leading to hospitalization or even death. But Friday's mass poisoning at an assisted-living facility near Sacramento was shocking in its scope - two dead and four sickened, including the caregiver who had prepared soup for residents using toxic wild mushrooms. Amateurs take a big risk when they harvest wild mushrooms, especially when they serve the fungi to others, said Casey Jonquil, owner of Alpine Foragers in Portland, Ore., who certifies and sells up to 8,000 pounds of wild mushrooms a day. "You just don't do that.

Adapted from a recent online discussion. Question: I have a friend who is a genuinely thoughtful and generous person. However, after doing you a kindness, large or small, she lets the world know about it, saying something to the effect of, "Well, yes, it was inconvenient; but that's just the kind, generous person that I am. " Recently she helped me move my mom to an assisted-living facility. I sent her a nice (snail mail) thank-you note and took her out to dinner, which she says wasn't necessary.
