Mark,I would think this would be a great idea. I can not offer any advice on the business part, but I am sure you would have plenty of clients. I do imagine the taking on trips, concerts etc might not work. Many of the elderly that would need senior day care would probably not be able to travel because of either physical difficulties or from the beginnings of dementia. I was reading this week in the Washington Post about a place for Alzheimers patients. These people would have dances, do art work, etc. Activities of this nature would probably work well in a day care. It would take a special person to take on this responsibility, but I think the senior day care could have great possibilities. Care givers many times are with their spouse, parent etc constantly. They still need to shop, get their hair cut fixed etc. I recently saw a woman write that she had not been in her home alone for almost 18 months and she wished her husband could have some place to go for just a few hours so she could just sit quitely by herself for a while.I read about subjects like this a lot. My first husband died with a malignancy. I had to leave him to work and worried constantly. He was an only child and I then took care of his father who died at the age of 91. I have been remarried for 13 years. I am 62 and my husband is 72 and is in the first stages of Alzheimers. So I do recognize the value of what you are doing and would encourage you to go for it. If you decide to do this I wish you the best of luck. I will E-Mail this to you as it seems no one else has used this board. I just noticed it today and since it has been a while since you posted you may not be checking it any more.Ivy
