I love working with the elderly, whether in LTC or acute care. I love the stories that they tell and the "advice" that they give r/t their life experiences. Sometimes funny, sometimes sad. This isn't text book history, so many elders can you give you historical truths r/t to their experiences in life. I hope that as I grow older, and am considered "elderly," others may enjoy the history that I can provide them with. LOL, my 26 year old son does not know what an 8 track is. And...it seems to me that as people grow older, they tend to be more honest with their feelings and convictions and don't "bury their heads in the sand."
