I applied to be the senior advocate for the City of Tukwila, but funding has been cut, so there won't be one :(
I have studied "Aging and Development" through college coursework and am aware of the hurdles our eldest generation faces in the loss of family, friends, and mobility. My "Crisis Negotiations" class even discussed the alarming rate of depression among the elderly.
I am still in school and enrolled in American Sign Language this coming semester. My mother learned ASL without coursework simply by spending time socializing at my grandmother's workplace: the assisted living facility.
I am a care giver and companion for pets and children too as well as a housekeeper, so my goal is not just to find someone looking for a friend- I would like to be of assistance if needed.
I am available regularly Tuesdays with the exception of 3/18. I also have a dog that would be optional for my friend to invite to visit as well. (Animal companionship has proven to enrich and subsequently extend the sometimes secluded or lonely lives of the elderly.
