Worth the Risk

I haven't had time to take the blog down yet, but I'm glad. Some things are worth risking discovery by the corporate compliance officer.

Sunday morning, WorkerBee went to the apartment of an 86-year-old male resident to assist him with his morning medication.  He came to the door naked, holding a pillow in front of himself.  The WorkerBee, on task, was not deterred and continued to enter the apartment to do the medication.  That's when she saw the naked lady.

It turns out this woman was a "church friend" and she was "visiting" our resident for the weekend.  WorkerBee was pretty freaked out. She stammered out something like "those aren't the kind of church friends I have," and called to report the "incident." 

Incident? I don't think so.  I say rock on, old people. Rock. On.

Shameless Plea

Hello to anyone out there who still reads, and my regrets to you for not being able to share lately the daily humor and awesomeness that is my job.  Two things.

Rock Ridge has been sold to a new owner. I have had little time to even breathe, let alone post. Bigger company, more corporate...so my guess is this blog will have to disappear for awhile...so if anyone (Big Bro? You out there?) can tell me how to do that without losing all my past posts, I would be grateful.

Second---below is a message I've sent to all my professional contacts.  I'm asking for anyone out there with the means (Facebook, email, blogs, pony express, whatever) to share the link and help us get votes.  Anyone who has read this blog for any amount of time knows how passionate I am about this topic. It's much bigger than me...I'm just trying to create an awareness.  I'm shooting for the moon and going to the top....who better than Oprah to help a girl out, right?  Without further ado...


It has long been my passion to preserve the wisdom of our elderly, so I took a leap and would like for you to help. My co-workers, a few residents, and I have made a video in an attempt to create an awareness about aging (Oprah has never had a show about elderhood!) Please help us spread the word and gather votes. There is no limit to the number of times you can vote!

Thank you for helping us spread the joys of elderhood!
