Serving seniors is a passion of mine. I was raised to show respect to my elders. When we meet the elderly, do we honor them by showing them our respect? Do we offer our assistance to them to help make their lives easier or more enjoyable?
Many cultures are taught to look up to their elders to gain some of their wisdom, knowledge or experience. Experience is a great teacher and one that helps us to avoid many mistakes in our own lives. Let us not forget the great value that lies in their lives and the years of invested time tested truths.
It would make me very happy and fulfilled to be a friend to a senior; to help them to find a place to live that would meet their needs both physically and socially, as well as, putting them in contact with helpful services and resources. I only hope that one day I would be shown the same respect and honor.
Truly the golden years should be the best years.
