A Senior's Problem

Responding to Seniors’ Needs

Let’s say you know an older person and they come to you for advice.  The following three statements are examples of their needs. How would you respond to their feelings?

Statement 1
“I’m all by myself. My partner died and left me alone. I don’t like to go out. I watch TV but it’s boring.”

Statement 2
“I used to enjoy woodworking so much, but my hands are too shaky now and my eyes are getting worse.

Statement 3
"I hate doing all those things I have done for years. I am sick of it all.”   It isn’t what it used to be.”
