The Friday Joke - Jails and Nursing homes


Ever thought what would happen if we put pensioners in jail and the criminals in nursing homes.

>  Pensioners would have access to showers, hobbies, and walks.
>  They would receive money instead of having to pay it out.
>  They would have constant video monitoring, so they would be helped instantly
     if they fell or needed assistance.
>  Bedding would be washed twice a week and all clothing would be ironed
     and returned to them.
>  Someone would check on them every 20 minutes.
>  All meals and snacks would be brought to them.
>  They would have family visits in a suite built for that purpose.
>  They would have access to a library, weight/fitness room, a pool, education,
     spiritual counseling, and free admission to in-house concerts by nationally
     recognized entertainment artists.
>  Simple clothing, for example: shoes, slippers, PJ’s.
>  Legal aid would be free upon request.
>  There would be private, secure rooms provided for all with an outdoor exercise
     yard complete with gardens.
>  Each senior would have a private computer, TV, radio, and phone in their room
     at no cost.
>  They would receive daily phone calls.
>  There would be a Board of Directors to hear any complaints and the rights organisations would fight for their rights and protection.
>  The guards would have a code of conduct to be strictly adhered to with attorneys
available at no charge to protect the Pensioners and their families from abuse or neglect.

As for the criminals:
>  They would receive cold food and receive showers once a week.
>  They would be left alone and unsupervised.
>  They would live in tiny rooms for which they would have to pay £5,000 per month.
>  They would have no hope of ever getting out.
>  Their families would not bother visiting them once they were "settled in", saying "it just upsets them"

Sorry. It's not really a joke, is it.
