97-YEAR-OLD EVICTED FROM RETIREMENT HOME


It’s a story that may enrage you.

What would you do if you suddenly found yourself without a home?

It’s something none of us want to think about.

But it’s a situation that a 97-year-old California man found himself in recently.

Jim Farrell was evicted from his home at Redwood Retirement in Napa for playing too much music.

Seriously?

Seriously.

Farrell was quoted in the local newspapers as saying, “Management would stop me and say these words: ‘Go back to your room!’ Like a kid.”

When he was put out on the street, Farrell spent three nights at a homeless shelter before an anonymous donor helped him move into Piner’s Nursing Home in Napa.

Friends are currently raising money to ensure that Farrell can stay at his new home.

Oh, and Redwood Retirement has not returned calls to the local papers.

What do you think of this situation? How do you think it could have been handled differently?
