    The Bath Chair Incident

    I was working in a hospital that had a SNF unit. That is a SKILLED NURSING FLOOR. I was a nurses aide. Part of the job required me to assist older people to shower. This was most often done with a shower chair. It had rollers. Once the person was undressed and seated on the...

    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...

    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...

    Comfort.

    I have always loved the elderly. I think it might stem from the closeness with my own grandparents. When most kids were going to stay at their friend's houses for the weekends and on school breaks...I was going to stay with my great grandmother. She lived in this little group...

    The Unmentionables

    As you know elder people never talk about such subjects as ...you know.......underware. It just wasn't spoken of. One of my friends had an elderly mother who couldn't even say "underware" to her own daughter. The day came when Mom needed some new undies. She said to her...

    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...

    I think old people are so,

    so blessed. I get goose bumps when I see an old person of 85 or even 95. I think these folks are so blessed to have lived so long and to have seen so much. I can't even begin to imagine the experiences they may have had. I hope we all make it to those ages. And even more...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
