Helping the elderly

My neighbor lady is 96 bless her heart. She called me yesterday and said she has 10 inches of snow in her driveway and has already fell once. Well I told Miss Johnson carry your cell phone and anytime you slip call me and I will come over and help you up.
Its all about the Caring

Gosh, with all that snow, I hope she's able to drag your trash cans to the curb.

Re: Helping the elderly

Next time you go over maybe you should strap a pillow to her butt just to cushion the fall.

Btw, did I ever tell you what a thoughtful person you are? I can't believe nobody ever remembers your birthday.

Itís funny until somebody gets hurt, then itís hilarious

Re: Helping the elderly

you are such a humanitarian. And, humble too! It's not like you are getting on the internet and bragging about the nice things you do....errr.....

Re: Helping the elderly

Older folks often need an ear to tell their problems to. I find it difficult, but you are a caring guy thinking of her welfare as well as offering good suggestion.

I'm so far behind I think I'm in first place.

Re: Helping the elderly

Honestly, I think you should tell her to just yell as loud as she can for you to come when she falls. That way she won't be distracted by using a cell phone and miss her step. Would also save her on a phone bill as I'm certain she's on a fixed income.

Re: Helping the elderly

My neighbor came over and shoveled my walk and steps & path to my garage and I didn't even ask. I called and thanked him for doing it..
