We all have had times where we need a helping hand. Seniors are no different. The need for goods and service increase with aging. The elderly just can’t do as much for themselves as they use to.
They want to remain independent as long as possible. Preparing meals, household chores, grocery shopping and getting back and forth from doctors can cause a problem for some seniors.
This is where you can step in and make a huge difference in a seniors life. Bye the way, giving makes you feel good. If you really want to give something that does not cost you, then spend some time with an elderly person in your life.
If you do not have time to offer, then you can make a big difference by donating to your favorite charity. I don’t intend to sound like I am lecturing you, or telling you what to do. This post is to make you think a little about making a difference in a seniors life.
We are all growing older. At 56 I have been thinking about this more and more. Questions in my head arise, do I have enough money, who will be there for me when I grow old. Growing older is not a bad thing. Some seniors will tell you that it is not so bad.
It is the time where you reflect on your life and what you have accomplished. Take time to smell the roses! Never will you hear a person say, I wish I would have worked more. Instead they will say, I should have spent more time with my family and friends.
Or, I wanted to take a vacation to some place and now and I can’t go…
Like the song, “My Way.” In verse 2. Regrets I’ve had a few but then again, so few to mention, I did what I had to do and saw it through without exemption. I plan each charted course, each careful step along the byway, and more, much more than this, I did it my way.

Thanks for reading this post. We all can make a big difference in a seniors life. The most priceless thing to give to a senior, is your time…
