  6. I often help different senior individuals by driving them to pay bills, get their grocery and pick-up medications after their doctor visits. Most of these individuals have a great fear of public drivers and don’t have family members that transport them.

  12. I offer to go out and do their shopping for them on my days off, when the weather is bad and I don’t want them out in it doing it themselves! Every single one of them are so thankful that I offer to do this for them and I never take a dime from them to do it, as I am making good money now and I can afford to do it for them without them paying me any money… All I want is a hug and a kiss on the cheek and definitely a smile from each one of them in knowing how much I care for them and truly do love them all to pieces!! Love ? conquers all! Julie

  20. I always make sure there is no drafts coming from doors or windows. Even though they dont have much circleation that is not good i make sure they are comfortable. If arrends are needed i will let them know i will do them. They really dont need to be out unless there is appointments. They always ask me if the side walk or ramp is slick and i let them know yes or no and i will make sure it is safe for them. Always make sure they are safe and comfortable.

  27. Just offer a hand in every single way, from taking trash out. To just being there on cold boring days to say hello.
