  1. I like the idea, but in the real world there are pedophiles. Educators have to go through police clearances, who would pay for all the clearances needed to be done for nursing home?

    1. I’m with you there is a lot more information needed to buy into the concept. I like the idea, my gramps loved kids and I know they would bring a smile to his face. The other thing I’ve learned is sometimes the elders may or may not know what they are doing and get frisky. My Aunt said plenty of sex goes on is elder homes. It was a shock to me. Caution and lots of supervision and structure would be required. 🙂
