By David Henderson
The shortage of men at Edgewater Pointe Estates is a perennial fact of life at retirement communities and nursing homes around the country, where women often outnumber men 3-to-1. Forget finding a mate – finding a man to dance with is tough enough.
Edgewater’s solution? Hire them.
This is from Matt Sedensky (Associated Press) “Short on men, retirement home hires dance partners” in today’s WaPost.
The article also notes that the complex brings in volunteers “from a local college fraternity.”
