In most countries, their elders are held in the highest respect. Frequently in this country, age is viewed as a bad thing.
It is thought that once one gets to a certain age, they are no longer valuable or relevant. Please don’t be part of that mindset.
Please take advantage of the wisdom that our elders have to offer. Sit down with them and ask them about their childhood. Soak up the advice they can offer. Lend them a helping hand with grocery shopping or rides to appointments. Let them know that they are seen and that they matter.
Remember that they were your age once. Think about how you want to be treated in your later years.
