Top 5 Ways To Care For an Elderly Person

June 17th, 2013

1. It’s important to ask what they want to eat. Its normal for people’s appetites to gradually reduce as they get older and often times it becomes even more crucial that Elderly people are getting enough food and the proper nutrition.

2. Play games with them. When I was a caregiver I would often ask what games they liked to play and it became a great starting point in developing a relationship with them. It also engaged them mentally which is beneficial as elderly people have less stimulation throughout their day.

3. Read to them. I have found that many elderly people are unable to read anymore but still enjoy going through a book with a caregiver or loved one.

4. Listen to them and ask how they feel. Listening is critical in any relationship but its even more important for elderly people because many of them often have a hard time asking for help. This means that you must be diligent in listening closely to their verbal and non-verbal body language. Also, often times by just asking them they will give you an answer.

5. Treat them with respect and love. This in my opinion is the basis helping care for elderly people. When you show that you genuinely care, that you are trying your best to help and support them, they often respond lovingly back which always puts a smile on your face and theirs.

5 Minutes Will Change YOUR Life and Some Else’s

September 13th, 2012


It’s simple, we are passionate about making a difference in the lives of our elderly population.

So we came up with a simple idea.

The purpose of this website is to give an opportunity for elderly people to share in 2-3 sentences what they would like to say to younger generations.

This is where YOU come in!

This is where YOU have the power to change someone’s life today!

All you have to do is ask this one simple question that could change everything!

By asking a grandma, grandpa, mother, father, loved one, friend, this simple question,

“What would you want to say/share/pass on to younger generations,”

We can make elderly people in America feel IMPORTANT again!

We can show them that we still care about them, that we haven’t forgotten about them, and that we still cherish them!


You will give them a voice again. We will create a community together that brings all of that wisdom, all of those experiences, all of those stories, together in one place.

We can then learn from them and be reminded of what the most important things in life really are.

Please join us in this!

Don’t do this for us, do it for your loved ones. They won’t be around forever.
