We’re continuing our series of conversations with seniors who live in nursing homes and assisted living facilities in Maryland.

Today, we’ll hear from Chuck, a 62-year-old resident of HCR Manor Care in Adelphi, Maryland.

Producer Jamyla Kay went out to the facility in Prince George’s County and brings us this ‘senior portrait’ of Chuck, an "automobile mechanic by trade, motorcycle rider by night." 

You can listen to our first 'senior portrait' featuring Harvey Marshall here
