It just might surprise you what they have to say! One of my biggest pet peeves is people Ignore the Elderly!!!!
People… they are people too! They were you before you were you! They experienced all the same things you are going through… The difference? They’ve been there, and done that already!
I’m not sure why society discards our senior citizens… But it really pisses me off when a conversation is being had and my father isn’t part of it. As if he doesn’t understand, or has no opinion.
Being a caregiver for the past 20 plus years to elderly relatives, I’ve continued to notice the disrespect of seniors… It just bugs me to know end!
They are us and we will be them some day…
Next time you have a chance to talk to an elderly person, Please, Please, Please Talk with them, make eye contact and even go as far as touching them. Hold a hand, rub a shoulder they are starving for touch!
I was a Girl Scout for many years. And although I wasn’t a fan of camping in the woods, I did enjoy singing Christmas Carole’s at nursing homes…
We were taught to
“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you!” Someday you too may be old and considered “elderly, a senior citizen” my question to you is…
How would you like to be treated?
Ignored or included?
Talked to or talked around?
Involved or looked over?
Left Alone or around others?
I know how I want to be treated at any age and that’s how we ALL need to treat and respect a very special generation called Senior Citizens…
The change starts with all of us… Please make an effort to love the wisest of the wise… What they have to say just might surprise you!
In love, awe and wonder…
