    Treasures Of Society

    I used to work as a housekeeper at a nursing home, and it turned out to be one of the most important and life-changing jobs I have ever had. At first, I was hesitant to talk to the patients, because I had fallen victim to several stereotypes of elderly people- that they are...

    How I Got My Mother-in-law To Use Her Walker.

    My mother-in-law wouldn't use her walker even after a bad fall which resulted in her breaking her arm. My sister and I made a pretty, fitted pillow for hers. She started using it (probably because she felt guilty after we went to so much trouble lol) Soon, she went into assisted...
