I learned that long ago when I first started working in LTC. They keep those places hot, even in the summer, because the elderly folks who live there are almost always cold.
Now I understand how they feel because I'M almost always cold. I think menopause knocked out my thermostat for good, because I've been this way ever since no matter how much adipose tissue I'm carrying around. Once my feet get chilly in October, that's it.....and I don't thaw out until July. I turn the heat up on Power Ranger and huddle under blankets while my poor hubby is walking around the house in a T-shirt, shorts, and bare feet. Hope neither of us ever needs home care, because those nurses will be walking into a blast furnace!
