This NORC idea intrigues me. My mother passed away recently at the age of 92. She did have some brief stop-overs at the nursing homes following illnesses, and her mental status always deteriorated quickly whenever she stayed in one. I was glad she was able to return to her own home and spend the last couple of years of her life there. Staying in your home if possible is almost always the best option.

Do you have any contact information for someone who can help set up NORC's in other communities?

Kermit-
I'm sorry for your loss. I'm sure your mom and your family had some comfort with her being able to stay at home. If someone were interested in starting up a NORC in their own neighborhood, I would start with contacting St. Louis Park where they've got some experience, and likely someone who can help get you started. I would also contact the County social services and your city council person to see if there is already an intiative under way.

Thank you for stopping and joining in on the conversation!
