There is a lot of information about how to stay healthy and live longer. This includes eating right, exercising, sleeping enough hours, having access to good medical care, as well as and equally important, having a purpose in life and friends you care about and who care about you. I am 90 years old and have all of the above at my fingertips. I live at White Sands La Jolla, a HumanGood retirement community. The nutritionist on staff gives monthly lectures on healthy eating, and our dining room provides us with a multitude of good choices. We have 18 exercise classes a week, with the physiotherapist on staff to advise us on how to deal with our aches and pains. I am lulled to sleep with the sound of waves from the ocean below my window. We also have nurses here 24/7 and a medical director available on site. I am surrounded by friends to eat meals with while sitting outside overlooking the sea. The White Sands bus takes us to all of the theaters, concerts, museums, fun restaurants, shopping malls, and excursions to see the desert flowers or an art exhibit in LA. We are a not-for-profit community with a highly involved resident population. I serve on several committees here knowing that my input is valued. We make a difference not only in our own lives, but in those of others here. We offer four levels of care; I am in independent living today, but know that, if needed, there is assistant living, memory care, and skilled nursing. In the meantime, I wake up every morning and nothing hurts. I look forward to a day full of fun and meaningful activities. Come join me!

Looking at the ocean is nice, but management sucked. Shows you that even some people that had an education can be mean.
