The thing about aging , is that relationships circles shrink. Others pass on, or their infirmities keep them isolated, some friends become victims of dementia. A care giver can substitute, become a link to offer friendship and offer sincere opportunities to the elder to share their life experiences and every day life blessings. I love this type of interaction. It can create a bridge from lonesome to mentor-ship. Teach me how you made potato salad, tell me stories of holiday traditions while I boil potatoes and fold laundry. These are the connections you can help make by mentioning my name.
