In 2009 while attending the National Association for Home Care and Hospice’s annual meeting, I had the great privilege to attend a session led by the inspirational former Secretary of State and Chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff Colin Powell, who recalled a time when extended families lived in the same neighborhoods during a time when community members looked after one another.  

As he reminisced and joked about his childhood growing up in the Bronx during the 1940s, he noted that the deterrent that kept the kids in line could be referred to as “The Auntie-Net.” He told the audience that he had more aunts and uncles than his mom and dad had sisters and brothers living on the same street.
