Mags, you crotchety, conspiracy-theorist, old goat.......... Your last few posts are total derp.

What do you think a picture of seniors living in a board and care or senior facility looks like when it floods? It looks like the pic that Duchess posted upthread. Is reality too politically correct for you now too?

Why do you think seniors who have dementia, physical disabilities, deafness, blindness, etc........are unwise when the administrators of their facilities follow orders to have their residents stay put rather than evacuate? Do you think Matty and Ethyl should have gotten their rebel on, thrown wet suits over their support hose, and wandered out into a torrential rainstorm - oxygen tanks dragging behind them?

It's required by state law that we train caregivers what to do to assist their senior clients when natural disasters hit. Seniors are among the most vulnerable and at-risk in those type of situations for a variety of obvious reasons. It doesn't make them unreal or unwise.

I'm left with the impression that this was more of a private home/assisted living place rather than a regular nursing home. Don't quote me on that as I'm not completely sure.

It looks like an assisted living/ boarding home run out of someone's private residence. I saw some pretty horrific ones here when I was looking into it for my grandma. I don't know how they got away with it, they were absolutely disgusting and the smell was unbearable. But no one gives a shit about those old people, if they did they would have been evacuated to a shelter in a flood free zone.

Here are the women now -

All of these people who were told to shelter in place reminds me of all the people who were told to stay in the twin towers and wait to be rescued.

Do I really need to ask who in their right mind would set still to sit in a pool of murky pissy water and sit and knit waiting for the popcorn to be finished? They may be old but are they really that out of it not to go find a dryer place to sit? Unless they are completely out of it that is you melon head.

She's not knitting. She's trying to figure out the life preserver. I think.

The building they are in may be all ground floor. There may not be higher ground.

I've had coverage of this on since I got back home this morning. On one hand, I really wish I would exhibit some self control and stop listening, it makes me feel so weepy 78 and on the other, I have a need to know everything that is going on. When I see people like us helping others I feel a lot of pride in my fellow citizens. I saw some guys who came into town with their boats, they said they couldn't sit at home when they saw all the people who need help. There's a bunch of stories like that. A furniture business owner opened the doors to at least 2 of his stores and put out the word that people were welcome to shelter there. I saw pix of people sleeping in his beds, chairs & sofas and people eating at the tables. The human interest stuff is compelling to me.

Listen here you knucklehead, tis you that doesn't seem to be in your right mind. Smiley_emoticons_smile

There just happens to be a popcorn machine at that care home. All of those ladies are in a care home, meaning they need assistance of some kind mentally and/or physically and are of advanced age. Keeping patients calm is always better than encouraging panic mode.

The owner of the care home was told to keep the residents put and help would be coming, and come it did. Now, fortunately, they've all been evacuated/relocated safely and they're all fine. Yeah, it sucks they were sitting in murky water for hours, but it would have sucked more if some of them had died in premature evacuation or had a stress-induced heart attack or something.
