    First off I think this group should not exists

    because there is no such thing as old people. Only Big Kids, as my grandmother says. People who may be older then everyone else but still a child at heart with wisdom on there side. :) Second, I love older people to talk to because they help me make my life better. Also they...

    It's A Family Tradition

    Most of my family on my father's side worked helping the elderly in their homes or otherwise. When I was a child, my father would often take me to work at the nursing home with him, and the residents were always so kind, and adorable. As I grew up, I developed anxiety disorder...

    Recently, I started working at a nursing home.

    There was one time where I was feeding this elderly woman in the dining room, and suddenly, another resident began to cough violently. These are the words that came out of the mouth of the woman I was feeding: "Oh, that poor thing. Bless his heart!.........Somebody shoot him...

    My first priority in my life

    when I become successful is to help and give love to all the elderly people that I will meet. Especially those who are in the Home for the Aged... I just want them to have the most meaningful experience of their life before they leave this place. I will love them just like how I...

    Growing up, I didn't know my grandfather (he

    died about 2 weeks and a few days before I was born and my grandmother wasn't the nicest to me. So, around 6th or 7th grade, I met this woman (about 60 or so), whom I came to call Ms. Lucille. She lived right across the street from my Dad with her husband (who was a very grumpy...

    It's Possible!

    Old persons are a hoot. As a home care worker I went to people who needed assistance to bathe or dress or just get it together for the day. Assisting with bathing was always an interesting experience. Older people have a very quaint way of putting things. Most of the ladies never...

    Nice People.() 2.() Be One Of Them

    Sometimes I feel so sorry for some people. They are so nice and probably even happy. But they deserve more, and they are just so sad to look at. I don't know how to describe it. You just look at their bags or their clothes.. or just see them acting in some way.. They may be happy...

    I Love Old People

    Today I saw an old man sitting on a bench inside Westfields. He looked out of place, so antiquated, for a place that is so sharp and sterile. I felt out of place there too. He even had a little notebook in which he was writing, and I thought it was so nice, him just sitting...

    The Senility Prayer

    Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.

    I work in a coffee shop

    and this elder man is always in. He chats away to me about anything and everything, tells me I'm pretty and asks why I don't have a boyfriend. His wife is lovely too. They gave me a Christmas card. I wanted to cry ;3

    I really love old people.

    They are so kind; they have a different type of kindness which you can feel by just talking to them. When I meet them, I feel I can understand how people talk about their grandparents, they usually talk about the unconditional love and about the kindness, well I never had any...
