Cook and Janitor of Nursing Home Kept Working without Pay Because ‘If We Left, They Wouldn’t Have Nobody’

A California nursing home that shuttered last fall lost most of its staff, leaving its residents behind, except for two people — cook Maurice Rowland, and janitor Miguel Alvarez.

Their story has been highlighted by StoryCorps and NPRand it’s worth a listen, even though it will break your heart.

“There was about 16 residents left behind, and we had a conversation in the kitchen, ‘What are we going to do?’” Rowland says on StoryCorps.

“If we left, they wouldn’t have nobody,” 34-year-old Alvarez said. “We were just the cook and the janitor.”

The team spent several days providing round-the-clock care for elderly patients, doling out medication, bathing, feeding, and looking after them.

“I just couldn’t see myself going home,” said Rowland.

He’s definitely one of our favorite up and comers. We love how catchy his new single “Usain Bolt”

Have you ever heard about the Rule of Three? With that being said 22-year-old, Virginia Native, Chris Scholar is on his way to being the 3rd R&B superstar arising from the 804 alongside Trey Songz and Chris Brown. He is a quadruple threat, singer, dancer, songwriter, and video director. Uniquely this young musician directs and edits all his own visuals from top to bottom. Co-signs from Jermaine Dupri, Sisqo, Blac-Elvis to Harold Lilly & more. He now introduces his next single entitled USAIN BOLT produced by Grammy award winning producer Blac Elvis. The young entertainer has graced stages with various major acts such as T.I. , Dru Hill, Fantasia, Rich Homie Quan, Mindless Behavior and the list goes on. He has recently been featured on The Source, MTV, and VH-1 for his last two song releases, but with so much to prove he’s leaving his fans (The Deans List), with another one. WIth major support from his hometown Richmond, VA he is said to be the next one representing for the 804. #VASTANDUP. – Bossip
