A Loving And Experienced Companion
Where do I start! I have been spending time with the elderly since I was a kid. My mother, who works in rehab, noticed that I needed to do some, "volunteering" when I was in middle and high school, and suggested I come to one of the locations that she worked in. I went and originally sang for the residents, and then spent time with them- I was blown away. I decided to continue this practice, spending as much time as I could with them, learning from them, helping them in whatever way I could. I became even more motivated to do so the older my grandparents got. They both ended up needing care, and I was so thankful to the people who provided it- I knew I wanted and needed to do so as well. The relationship is symbiotic- yes, I am helping care for someone or offering them companionship. But more often than not, they contribute to my life as well with every interaction.
