The Forgotten Ones: Compassion for the Elderly

Sometimes I just have to cry in my bed at night. You know, so nobody knows. I try to keep up a brave face, but sometimes I just have to cry.” ~ A nursing home resident

Please call your local nursing home and volunteer to visit a lonely and forgotten resident. Your love may be the only love they receive. ♥

    So true. Many of us seeing this reminder will be in this resident's place if we live long enough. Leaving our home is traumatic for all age groups. Without those who are capable of compassion, our world would be cold and cruel.
