If I were a Nursing Home Administrator!

I got this idea from another mylotters post. I simply answered the question in it then I came up with this poem. Just so that you will know, this poem was written by me and I just wanted to share it with mylot friends. Thanks for taking the time to read it and feel free to leave comments. Citychic (1687) If I were a Nursing Home Administrator, these are the changes I would make. I'd shake the whole place up and make it all the way live. There would be lots of singing and dancing and lots of slapping the high five. The food in the place would taste as good as could be. All of the ladies would be active doing the booty dance all the way down on their knees. And all of the men would be Active there too. They'd be smoking a little weed . And making love all that they wanted to. All up behind the trees. There wouldn't be any snitchers around. Lots of picnics going on. I'd tear the roof off that town. it wouldn't be anything like the norm. As everyone danced and jammed to the funky beat. I'd give all the senior citizens a place where they could really dig in their feet. They'd all have their own cell phones, their own rooms with Wide screen tv's. With extra room for all their junk. With kitchens as clean as could be. Attached to every bedroom there would be a spa. And all of those that requested would have their very own Masseuse. All of their family members could come to stay as long as they pleased. They'd feel like they were on vacation and they wouldn't want to leave. I'd fire every single worker that did not show empathy to these. If anyone walked in displaying a bad attitude. I"d send then right back home until they changed their little groove . To be put in a nursing home would be a real treat. All the holidays would be festive and a lively place to be. When finally I am coming to my end. I would fight to stay in my home So that I could be close to my family and friends. But if the time ever came that I was a burden upon anyone of these. Then I'd head on over to the nursing home. To partake of the festivities. I'd be out there trying to walk around, working hard to keep my shape. I would probably plant a garden there, a few trees and watch them grow. I'd probably break on down and back a few cakes for some poor old hungry soul. Then once I'd finally gotten all of my affairs in order. And I'd done all that I could do. I'd get down upon my hands and knees And I'd be there praying "Father, I'm ready to come on home with you". I'd pray that all of my little old friends and family could all be there too. And every single life that I'd touch, would be at heaven's gates. For I'd know that my Journey would be over, once I'd seen my Father's face.

Thank you very much for your response KrauseHome, It meant so much to me to hear from you. I'm happy that you were able to see the humor in my poem. I've never actually worked in a nursing home before but i can just imagine some of the things that go on behind the scenes. So let's just say what little I've seen of it as a visitor, wasn't very impressive. Anyhow thank you very much for giving positive feedback on my writing/poem. Actually I would love to become a published writer some day, so I'm sure that this won't be the last that you've heard from me. Unfortunately I tend to think that i can be a bit too anil when it comes to such things as writing and music. Perhaps this is where I tend to get myself into a little bit of trouble at with friends as well as family when expressing myself. But don't worry, I can usually handle it. Anyhow take care and thanks for the friendship. I look forward to stronger bonds in the future.

Wouldn't the nursing home be a popular place to go if they had these things, lol. Thank you for writing this. You did a good job with it. I worked as a nurse's aide in two nursing homes years ago and it [b][/b]is hard work. Some of the other nurse's aides sure did have bad attitudes, too!Some of them didn't have any patience with me whatsoever.Some of them just don't any patience with a new nurse's aide and this is not right because they need to give verybody a chance. If you don't mind, I would like to print this and give it to the administrator at the nursing home where I go to sing once a month. He/she might get a kick out of this. Kathy.

Off to bed now forsure this time but couldn't resist - I think you should be running every nursing home in the nation! This is fun but at the same time sends a great message - people in nursing homes deserve better than what they have and how they are treated... Amen!

Thank you very much for your comment my dear friend. I do sincerely hope and pray that somebody in a position of authority will wake up and realize that things aren't being run right out there in those places like the nursing homes and even some hospitals. But anyhow glad that you could see the humor in it. Well all we can really do is keep the faith and pray my dear. Just keep the faith and keep moving on. We may not be able to change the world. But we can make a difference by the small things that we do. I believe that writing is one way to help do that. Off to bed for me too soon. Take care and thanks for taking the time to read my poem. May God continue to bless you. Have a good night!
