The certification is an extra certification for a Type B facility and extra “layer” of regulations the facility must follow while providing such care, both operations and Life Safety Code.

  • 11. Bowel Movements Three old men are talking about their aches, pains and bodily functions. One seventy year old man says, "I have this problem. I wake up every morning at seven and it takes me twenty minutes to pee.“ An eighty year old man says, "My case is worse. I get up at eight and I sit there and grunt and groan for half an hour before I finally have a bowel movement.“ The ninety year old man says, "At seven I pee like a horse, at eight I crap like a cow." "So what's your problem?" asked the others. "I don't wake up until nine." source: http://www.jokes4us.com/miscellaneousjokes/retirementjokes.html

  • 13. Quotes • “It`s not how old you are, it`s how you are old.” ― Jules Renard • “Sex at age 90 is like trying to shoot pool with a rope.” ― George Burns • “Learning is an ornament in prosperity, a refuge in adversity, and a provision in old age.” ― Aristotle • “The good thing about being old is not being young.” ― Stephen Richards • “Old age is like a plane flying through a storm. Once you're aboard there's nothing you can do.” ― Golda Meir • “If you see me running, do me a favor, shoot what’s behind me!“ ― Sue Davis
  • 14. Centenarians The oldest human to ever live (one whose date of birth can be fully documented) was Jeanne Louise Calment from Arles, France. She died in 1997 at the age of 122 years 166 days. In many ways, she was a remarkable person. She is the only person to have ever been confirmed beyond a doubt to have reached the age of 120 years. Although she died 14 years ago, nobody else has managed to live that long. An interesting side question is how Jeanne Louise Calment managed to achieve such an advanced age? She smoked until the age of 117 and reportedly ate a couple of pounds of chocolate a week. She also rode her bike until the age of 100 and lived on her own until 110. Go figure.
