Day 2158 - Elder-Wear!
Greetings, Bloggy Bucket-Listers!
I forgot to tell one story about my excellent visit to the retirement community.
Some of the residents need 'semi-supervision'. They have wrist or anklet monitors that cause an alarm to sound if they leave a programmed-in range. I may very well be wearing one someday - though I hope not!
Staff have codes at the elevators to disable the alarm if they need to transport a patient to exercise or health appointments.
I was in the elevator with one such resident, who showed me her bracelet and explained it's purpose (kind of). I quipped 'I know what that is for! You're on parole, aren't you?'
The other residents in the elevator really enjoyed that...
"You're on parole, aren't you?"--only you could get away with that! They love when they see you coming!
You are too funny! I think I'd have to say the same thing though...lol! I haven't seen those ankle bracelets before. Very cool! Can I get one for Savi??Post a Comment
