Did anyone see the news about male strippers at the nursing home?

It's the place, down the block, where Mom stayed for rehab. We saw it on the local news this morning, and now it's on TMZ! Mom will NOT be going back there EVER! LOL

It's a difficult question to answer, I think. It may have been "voted on" by a committee of residents, but we need to take into account those with cognitive disabilities. As a hospice Medical Social Worker, I spend a good portion of my time visiting patients in SNF's-most of which have Alzheimer's or other forms of dementia. Their altered reality can be very frightening for them.

Never been to a strip club myself - not the sort of entertainment I'd intentionally seek out, but if I was invited by a good friend or two, or even my daughter and DIL (because we share that kind of relationship) I think I'd go...why not?...especially if they were paying the cover price. Don't believe I'd go so far as to start stuffing dollar bills down some guy's underwear, but hey...get a few drinks in me and all bets could be off!
I don't really see the harm in it as long as the residents of the NH in attendance were there by choice, and aware of the kind of entertainment they had come to see....and the entertainer (per se) had the respect, decency, and presence of mind to not go "full Monty". I can only hope that when I reach my 80's-90's (God willing) I still have as much spunk and joie de vie as the groom's grandma in Pam's story!

When I can't enjoy a stripper, pull the plug.

My MIL would pretend to be shocked and horrified. And the "victim" claims of "I was forced to do it" is the oldest playground excuse in the world. She's just embarrassed that her family saw it on youtube.

I'm 70 and think it sounds like fun. My MIL is 97 and would be horrified, shocked, and probably traumatized. Why not just put a post-it note on the doors of those who would enjoy it? I am more concerned about men with dementia who are allowed to wander the halls sexually attacking female residents.

Although it isn't entertainment that I would choose, this man was not nude. I am thinking that some of you did not read the article. Consider that the patients had probably been to this type of entertainment and enjoy it.
