Volunteering

i volunteer at a local nursing home on their hospice care floor. i had two very good friends that i made there, but one of them passed away a few months ago. i still go and visit the remaining lady, who is about 85-86 years old. she has a bad memory and i write down lots of things for her to remember, like the names of her stuffed animals and when i come to visit/what i bring (i usually bring cookies or something)...anyways, i am going to see her tomorrow, and i can't wait!

I do volunteer visits as well. I also used to work for a 90 yr old lady......she had me in stitches with her stories :)

You are wonderful!! I have so much respect for people that take the time to spend with the elderly. They have so much to say but so few people are willing to listen.
