Unregimenting the regimented

Unregimenting the regimented: this may be the soul work of making more caring our caring for our elders. We certainly have the technology to deliver individual care. Instead we send a platoon of sergeant-nurses through the ranks of dependent people to make them conform to one schedule. Thus we remove from folks their privacy and any semblance of having an individual life. “[B]ut when you are old…someone else will dress you and lead you where you do not want to go.” We are demonstrating our own lack of imagination, lack of humanity. It is up to us to demand of us our highest and best.
