In 1991, Dr. Thomas went from being an emergency roomphysicianto the medical director of a nursing home in upstate NewYork. “Theplace was depressing, with old people parked inwheelchairs likefrogs on a log, bored with nothing to do, justwaiting for death tofinally reach them. It was horrible,” Dr.Thomas recalls. Sohe did the unthinkable. He persuadedthe facility and staff toget two dogs, four cats, several hens andrabbits, and 100parakeets, along with hundreds of plants, avegetable and flowergarden, and a day-care site for staffers’ kids.At the time, therewere laws prohibiting animals in nursing homes.They went aheadanyway. Listen to the rest of Dr. Thomas’ storyand find outhow we can change our misconceptions about aging, beingolder andwhy we don’t need to fear our “elderhood.”
