My wife's parents have always been a big presence in our lives. Which is great. Not to mention our kids adore them. About once a year, the whole family would drive to the New Jersey shore to spend a week just relaxing by the ocean with our feet in the sand. My wife's father helped the kids build sandcastles, and her mom read novels under the shade of an umbrella. It was, for everyone, the highlight of the year.

When the war ended, Mom moved to New Hanover, where she worked at Fort Dix and finally agreed to a dinner date with a handsome airman on base—Dad. They bought a stylish rancher in the suburbs. Of course Dad thought she should stay home, cook and clean, but he didn't know the force he was reckoning with. She fought to keep her career, continuing to work part time, even after we girls came into the picture.

As a non-profit Methodist organization, United Methodist Communities seeks to be revenue neutral between costs charged to our residents, and the cost of actually providing 1st class care across all our communities. While the cost of living in our communities is at or below the cost of living in similar communities in each geography, the cost of providing care and fulfilling our lifetime commitments to residents no longer able to pay, escalates every year. In fact this shortfall reaches into the millions of dollars every year, and if not for the United Methodist Communities foundation and its charitable support, United Methodist Communities would have a staggering deficit that no amount of goodwill could bridge.
For a long time, this escape to the shore was a tradition in our family. That is, until my wife's father had a mild heart attack a couple years back. After that, he started moving slower; needed more rest. Soon, trips to the shore were too hard on him. It was difficult for everyone to watch this decline, and all we wanted was to be able to help him. Unfortunately, he required the sort of attention that neither I nor my wife could offer; so it was time to consider options.
