I have recently been volunteering at a local nursing home. It is the one my husband stayed in prior to his death last year. I find that I have enjoyed being with and socializing with the seniors there, as i am a senior myself.

I get great satisfaction from interacting with them and conversing about their lives and the various things they have accomplished in the past. I think about myself and the possibility that I may have to be cared for in that same setting, and I would hope that someone would come in and spend some time with me on a one to one basis. It is a very rewarding thing to do, and gives me a chance to give back to the community. I feel very blessed in my own personal life.
