Life’s little pleasures
Life’s Little Pleasures: Coffee in Your Jammies Not everyone drinks coffee in the morning. Not everyone has the luxury of lingering in bed with that first hot cup of joe. But if you are retired this can be more than just a weekend indulgence—languishing in bed in your jammies, having coffee, maybe even catching the last ten minutes of the show you fell asleep watching the night before. Or maybe you want to read the paper in complete silence. Ah, the retired life. Now imagine you are 94 years old, hard of hearing, achy-boned, and last night you suffered yet another in a long line of sleepless nights due to the commotion out in the hall…of your nursing home. Sorry, old man, but you have to get up, get dressed, and make your way down the hall before you can get that first cup of coffee. The dining room is full of chatter. The grains of spilled sugar on the table bite into your elbows. You think to yourself, sure, I like these folks well enough. We’ll be playing cards later. But right now I want to be drinking this coffee in bed in my jammies. In-home care is one of life’s great gifts to the aging.
