Let me start by saying I LOVE our senior guests. LOVE. I worked in health care for a long time and geriatrics was my specialty. But we've had a rash of children buying their elderly parents gift certificates to our place. These folks just really shouldn't be out by themselves. They are not comfortable out of their home environment, don't like being somewhere strange and worse yet having to DRIVE there. But they feel they can't possibly "waste" their childrens' gift so insist on using it. And we end up elder sitting the whole time they are here and resent it. I am afraid the whole time someone is going to fall, etc. I wish we could get away with not selling GC's.
