Your piece really was on target in every way and I commend IBJ for giving it such a prominent place in the paper.

Another thanks for column about nursing homes
Thanks for [Tawn Parent's] excellent commentary in the Feb. 16 issue. My 88-year-old father has been in his first nursing home just over two weeks. We attended the care meeting today, as you suggested.
I can't say enough good things about Westminster Village in West Lafayette, but I know your concerns will ring true with many readers as other facilities fail to measure up.
We also can't get enough customers interested in long-term-care insurance until it's too late. I hope our generation takes that more seriously and plans ahead.
