Extending a helping hand

Sunday, July 27, 2014

Today I made some new friends. They are the family of a new resident at the nursing home. They were still in shock because of the sudden onset of their father's health problems. We talked a lot. I counseled them as we shared our "war" stories. It felt so good to have folks to commiserate with. I reassured them that they , like I, have picked the right facility for our Loved ones. I was happy to answer their questions & give them a heads- up about some things that are "coming down the pike".

They appreciated that I tend to mind other people's business - the patients/ residents as a supplement to the busy staff. Ie. I help open food packets & try to help keep the folks that are trying to get up out of their wheelchairs in them ( with gentle & caring words) to prevent falls. I have struck up friendships with some of the folks. One of whom was a pop music star from the 50s ! I talk to him like a person not a patient. I make him feel so good about himself & vice versa. This is the fellow that inspired me to sing last week.i emoticon emoticon

    Yes it is; and even if you aren't physically able to do so, there are things you can do with your time. I make hats to donate to our town's cancer resource center, and also infant hats to our hospital for newborns.
