Well you really 'got it,' Tina.' And having seen several facilities of
various sorts myself, I'd say you're absolutely correct about the staff
being the single most important factor.

Thanks, B.D.  That's exactly what I hoped the photos would show.  The
day care should be a depressing place but every time I photograph there,
feel good about the care that the people are receiving.  There is such a

world of difference in these places and it has nothing to do with the 
facility or amount of money spent and everything to do with the
who really like what they are doing and care about the people.  The game

they were playing only required two straws, a wad of paper, and a piece
masking tape, but they were having a blast and exercising their lungs at

the same time.  I also photographed in an upscale, expensive "retirement

community".  Now that was depressing!!  Everybody sat in reclining
in front of a big screen tv showing game shows all day.  My idea of a 
retirement from hell.
