Spending time with an elderly person is very rewarding to me. Besides keeping them safe and content, I genuinely enjoy helping others, listening to their many life stories, playing games with them, reading to them and just have quiet, peaceful time together. In other words, most anything I can do to assist their quality of life, I will do. I recently finished caring for an elderly man, wheelchaired bound, because he, unfortunately, entered an assisted living home. I cooked, ran errands, assisted with any personal hygiene (as needed). Whatever he needed for that particular day. He is a wise, smart, kind man who was, overall, a pleasure to spend my time with. I have a real respect and fondness for the elderly. I enjoy spending my time with older, wiser people.
