and the City
Geriatrics and the City was written by Krista. She was an activities coordinator in a Chicago-based nursing home by day, and a stand-up comic by night. This blog combines Krista's love of the elderly, her passion for writing, her blunt humor, and her need for attention. It tracked her days spent at her dream job, and followed the amazing residents she worked with. From funny stories, to heart-breaking losses, to daily challenges and wins, this blog examined a side of the population that is commonly forgotten about, but holds more treasures than you could ever imagine. You will laugh, you will cry, your heart will be touched, and you will feel like you know the people she wrote about. The elderly are some of the most interesting people in the world, and we can all stand to learn something from them. Please enjoy the stories and adventures of working in a nursing home!
