- by marsqueen Apr 11I keep seeing stories about people that are celebrating their 100th or 102nd birthday, or somewhere around there, and was curious if it is becoming more common for people to live that long?
- Apr 11 by funtimesIve taken care of quite a few people who were 100 plus(maybe its something in the water here). When I worked in LTC we had a couple of pretty spry ones who were my favorites. If my experience was any indication having a sense of humor helps you live longer because some of them were real characters. They didnt always know where they were or what the date was(or even who they were talking to), but they still had some amusing stories, or would have conversations with people who probably died decades ago that were interesting to listen to.

- Apr 11 by loriangel14I have had several in the hospital that were over 100 and still pretty lively. One lady was 106.Her 85 year old daughter came to the hospital one day and approached the nursing station.A nurse didn't know who she was and asked her if she needed help. She replied " yes, I'm looking for my mother".The nurse said " oh my dear, I don't think your mother's here".We had to tell her the little lady wasn't confused and her mother was indeed there.
