School Was Simple Once
I attended grade school during the Dwight D. Eisenhower administration. You do the math. My first year was grade one at age 6. Kindergarten was available if you paid for it. I walked about a mile to school in sun, rain or snow. Some days I even walked back home for dinner and back to school again. You could buy your noon meal for 15 cents or take a brown-bag sandwich that my mom made while I was eating my oatmeal breakfast with fresh cream on top. Whole milk or buttermilk in a quarter-pint bottle was available for 2 cents. At recess you could buy an ice cream for a nickel. You had a choice of a Popsicle, Dreamsicle or a fudge bar. You could get two pretzel sticks or a bag of Fritos also priced at a nickel.   The classrooms had ceiling-to-floor windows to let the sun in to supplement the lightbulbs high above the desks. On warm days the windows were unlatched with a long pole with a hook on the end. One of my teachers insisted that the windows be opened for a while in the wintertime to get healthy fresh air in the room. After we shivered a while, the iron steam-heated radiators would spit and gurgle and warm you back up. If you happened to sit near one of those noisy beasts, you could be hot on one side and cold on the other. It took a while to heat those oiled, wooden floors and the plaster walls with several feet of slate blackboards. During the winter months we hung our coats on hooks in the long hallway and put our boots on the floor underneath. A huge circler hand-washing station was located there, and after soaping your hands, you could step on the pedal and rinse your hands before going to your classroom. You always washed up after recess, too. After the bell rang, we all went to our desks of dark wood and black iron sides to begin the day. Books were kept on a shelf underneath, and pencils lay in a grove at the top of the slanted desk next to a hole for an ink bottle. The seat was attached to the desk behind, and both pieces were bolted to the floor or on wood runners. No scooting around or leaning back in those days.We were assigned seats in alphabetical order, and roll call started the day. We stood next to our desks and pledged allegiance to the flag with its 48 stars and 13 stripes. “Under God” was added to the pledge and two more stars were sewn on the flag before the decade was over. Next we bowed our heads and recited the Lord’s Prayer before settling down to learn our reading, writing and arithmetic — the famous three R’s of yesteryear.  For recess we headed outside to the dusty dirt play ground with its tall swings and teeter-totters. A baseball game was always played in season with a real hardball and wooden bat. Sometimes we shot marbles inside a ring drawn in the dirt with a stick. My mother said I better come home with the same amount of marbles I left home with. In other words, don’t play “keepers.” If you got a cut or scrape and needed some mending, you went to the principal’s office for some iodine or a Band-Aid. It was also the office you went to for a paddling if you misbehaved anywhere on the school grounds.It was a bit different from the schools of today.

Testimonials
 My Mother has been going to Care4Ever Senior Care Center for several years. She looks forward to going and socializing with the other seniors. She especially enjoys the singing and various activities. The staff is so wonderful and compassionate and go a step beyond their jobs to make sure Mom is comfortable. She feels loved and appreciated at Care4Ever and her life has definitely been enriched. Care4Ever has given me confidence and peace of mind knowing she is provided a caring, positive and safe environment.
 
 
 My Mother has been cared for by the wonderful people at Care4Ever Senior Care Center for several months. Mom is picked up at her home and transported to the center.The center is beautifully decorated and feels like home. The staff of Care4Ever does a wonderful job of planning activities to keep Mom entertained. Mom enjoys the time she spends there. Her day at the center includes lunch. Mom has always been very smart and she is good at playing word games. I have stopped by the center and have seen the way the staff interacts with Mom. They treat her with respect. I believe that the time Mom spends at the center will allow her to remain independent, with a little assistance, longer.     
 
 
 Care4Ever has been a blessing to our family. My Dad has been attending for approximately three years, two or three times a week. From the first moment my Mother and I walked in to visit we had a warm, welcoming feeling. My Mother is my Father's sole care giver, I work full time and was looking for a place for my Father to stay a few hours during the day to give my Mother a break. Not only has the facility provided my Mother with a break, but the socialization and care my Father receives has been excellent. My Father is very much a people person and this has been a wonderful outlet for him. When my Mother or I had a concern it has been addressed promptly and taken care of by Val. It is hard as your parents get older and you try to do the best you can for them while working and taking care of your own family. I do not feel like we could find a better place for my Father!!! We are very happy with all the services provided!   
 
 
My Father has been going to Care4Ever for about two years now. He absolutely loves going there. My wife and I feel confident that Dad is taking good care of by well trained staff at Care4Ever. My family truly appreciate the way Care4Ever accommodate our needs to make things easier for us. We highly recommend this place for any senior citizen.

Care4Ever Alzheimer's Respite Care
Care4Ever Senior Care Center Alzheimer's Respite Care Benefits of day centers: For people with Alzheimer's and dementia, adult day care centers provide a chance to be social and participate in staffed activities such as music and exercise programs. Keep in mind that the person with dementia will need to adjust to the experience of going to the day center. Some people may resist going at first, but they often look forward to the visit after several weeks of attending, meeting people and joining in activities. If you are a caregiver that works during the day, an adult day care center can be very helpful as you try to balance a job with caregiving duties. Care4Ever hours of operation are Monday thru Friday 7am to 6pm. Is a Adult Day Care Right for Your Parent or spouse? How does a caregiver who has a elderly parent with Alzheimer's know if they should consider adult day care? Here are some questions to ask: Does the elderly parent or spouse with dementia seem unable to provide any structure for their daily activities? Is the elderly parent or spouse isolated from others for more than an hour or two each day and misses companionship? Can the elderly parent or spouse with Alzheimer's or dementia be safely left at home alone? Does the caregiver work outside the home or need a regular break? Care4Ever is a State Certified Social Model Day Center for Senior Adults. Contact us today for a tour of our facility. Contact: Val at 270-765-3344
