An observation

Share this Article



I did quick review of all my postings on this blog this morning. I can see if I was in your shoes as a reader I might want to see more of the community and maybe pictures or video of me with the residents. I would love to provide that because I see the power in that content to this “story”. However, I hope you all appreciate that the moment I start “interviewing” my neighbors or asking them if I can get them on video that it will dramatically change my position in the community. So, I hope you see value in me simply sharing my thoughts, feelings and emotions.

Today we are taking a trip to the Museum of American History, I am bringing my camera, perhaps I can give you a different glimpse of my journey.

Thanks for following me!

    First of all, I love what you are doing! I’ve participated in some short exercises (1-2 days) of being a resident in a nursing home, and they left indelible marks. I’m more sensitive to ageism, to the importance of respect and comfort and dignity.

    From your experience, what are the strengths of the staff? What makes the great ones really shine? Is it attitude, heart, knowledge or a combination of the above? How does leadership show? What happens when problems need to be solved?

    You’ve hit the nail right on the head by calling your blog “Everyone is Aging”. There really is no “us” or “them” – some of us have easier roads than others. Thanks for getting the conversation going, Steve
