Today at one of the nursing homes I work for a little 103 year old sweetie fell off her bedside commode trying to get back in her wheelchair. As she waited for nursing to check her out and then help her up she stated, "I have to get up because I will be late for bingo!" All I could think about was I hope she did not break a hip or injure herself in another way...AND she was thinking BINGO! I love working with these seniors! They often have such a fun perspective on life!
Do you feel comfortable around the elderly?
Do you have a fun story about how an elder put perspective in your life?
