Who are all these Old People, anyway?


Old people smell funny.

Old people are always cranky.

Old people are deaf and pretty much blind so NO WAY should they be allowed to drive a car.

Old people are just too set in their ways.  They can't handle change, and they refuse to embrace the modern way of doing things.  

Old people will never understand computers or how new-age technology works because all people, once they hit retirement age, are just too frail and doddery.  Can't teach an old dog new tricks, right? 

Plus they have nothing to contribute to society anyways because it's too cold out and everyone else is a flamin' idiot.


AND WHAT'S WITH ALL THESE FUNNY OLD GEEZERS WEARING THEIR PANTS UP SO HIGH???????

There she is!



Hello, my name is Dollie Dogood AND I AM NOT OLD (....yet!)

In the meantime, after years working with the elderly, I felt it necessary (ok, therapeutic) to share my stories, amazing experiences and silly observations  of this weird, wonderful and often wobbly world of Aged Care.

It's a pleasure assisting older adults to remain living independently in their own homes and to provide the care and support they need to stay there for as long as they can manage it.  

Hopefully, with dignity firmly intact!

But also enlightening to discover what it really means when yet another sweet elderly Senior, frustrated with their sick uncooperative and poweless body, looks me square in the eye and says... "For chrissake... don't get old, Dollie!".

Enjoy the madness... AND HAPPY READING!

*** DISCLAIMER BIT:
No, I don't like the phrase 'Old People' either.   

How old is OLD anyway? 

At what age do you suddenly stop being People and start wearing your 'Old Person' badge?

Also...all names have been altered, just a little, so as not to upset any Privacy apple carts. 

Tra la la!
