About

Geriatrics and the City is written by Krista. She is an activities coordinator in a Chicago-based nursing home. It tracks her days spent at her dream job, and follows the amazing residents she works with. From funny stories, to heart-breaking losses, to daily challenges and wins, this blog examines 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 follows. The elderly are some of the most interesting people in the world, and we can all stand to learn something from them. Follow along as Krista takes us on this journey.
