    Default Bathtub test

    Some have counseled me to go to a long-term care home. I was not sure about this. So I decided to ask my long time doctor.

    So, I awaited my next visit and I asked him, "How do you determine whether or not an older person should be put in a Long-Term Care Home?"

    "Well," he said, "we fill up a bathtub, then we offer a teaspoon, a teacup and a bucket to the person to empty the bathtub."

    "Oh, I understand," I said. "A normal person would use the bucket because it is bigger than the spoon or the teacup."

    "No," he said. "A normal person would pull the plug."

    "Do you want a bed near the window?"
