Come rain or shine… will you be there for the elderly?
One of our volunteers reflects that many of us rarely even see our grandparents, and when we do, some of us are “glued to our phones” while others can’t get past the language barrier.
“None of us want to be in a situation where we regret not having known our grandparents better.”
But it’s never too late to make the first step. No need to use big words – a simple “Have you eaten?” or “What did you do last week?” can set off a conversation that both of you will cherish forever.
Think about the various elderly in your life – your grandparents, the Coffeeshop Uncle, the Auntie selling tissues. How can you reach out to them today?
