Practical Assisted Living Structures - PALS

A couple of years ago I met a man named Henry Racki. Henry is a builder, and he had a vision for families to be able to keep their loved ones at home and out of institutions. It wouldn't matter if the loved ones were old and frail or young and disabled in some way. He developed modular, temporary additions for homes called Practical Assisted Living Structures, or "PALS."

Henry's company is going strong. They are building the PALS and attaching them to homes. Even cooler, he has built this business during the worst recession our country has had since the Great Depression. He has built this home-building company in the midst of our worst housing slump in ages. That is something to be proud of.

Another thing we all can be proud of is that Henry is a veteran, and he first thought of PALS to help disabled veterans. In fact, he installed the first unit onto a veteran's home, donating the time and materials. I wrote about this in a previous blog.

Take a look at the PALS website and watch the video of the PALS being put in place.

Hi all,

When living at one of the assisted-living facilities, you can enjoy the variety of on-site and off-site activities offered at each location. Most assisted-living facilities offer volunteering programs for any senior residents wanting to give back to the local community. Assisted Living facilities offer a good place for seniors to age. Thank you...

While assisted living facilities do offer services and activities to their residents, there are a vast number of people that want to age in place and stay within their own environment and community. PALS are just another option for seniors to have for their long term care.

Well said Rimme. Assisted living is a great place for the elder to get rid from loneliness and to participate in certain activities.
