I've had several family members that needed assistance as they advanced in years. I also have supported many, many seniors in my role as a librarian at several public libraries.
I love listening to stories from times gone by, and arranging for new and creative input for seniors who can use some new things to think about or try.
I maintain a good awareness of when it's time to be out or on the move, and when it's a better time to relax and enjoy a cup of tea or listen to a book.
Two of the seniors I helped through their later years needed special support due to physical and neurological needs such as dementia and Alzheimer's, so with that on top of my library experience, I'm very adaptable and able to go with the flow.
Nobody should have to spend their golden years being disinterested in life while they still have their life to live. I can happily help with that, and make sure that they live their lives safely and without loneliness. Let's talk about the senior person you love.
