A U.K. nursing home is feeling the heat after hiring pole dancers as entertainment for its elders. Local counselors deemed the choice “inappropriate,” but the managers over at Fairmile Grange care home are proud of the decision.
According to operations and quality director Izzy Nicholls, the “residents were given several choices of activity.” Turns out they chose the pole dancers to perform.
Counselor Peter Hall says it’s inappropriate. “It’s not really the sort of entertainment I would have thought that the residents wanted or would have encouraged,” Hall said. Social media, on the other hand, is praising the home with many people saying residents should be able to enjoy themselves.
