Leisure World Makes Getting Old Easier

Our readers wrote letters throughout 1992, expressing their viewpoints on a variety of issues. Here are condensed versions of some of those letters to help us remember the events that mattered to Orange County readers this past year. We would like to thank the readers who took the time to share their views, and we look forward to hearing from them and others in 1992.

If the people hadn't moved to Leisure World, their health still would have failed, they'd still have run out of money, and they'd still be alone. But, unlike those in Leisure World, they would also be stressed out, living in apartments or houses with bars on the windows, in fear of being mugged or robbed.

In Leisure World, the worst can happen, but seldom does. There are no bars on the windows, people walk the streets after dark, 24-hour nurses are on call, (there is) free transportation, apartments are constructed to accommodate a life in a wheelchair, and much, much more.

It's hard getting old. Leisure World just makes it a little easier.
