Seniors – do we help or hurt ?

They start to get up from their sitting place. Sometimes, some of us ask – what do you need, let me get it for you? Some of us then find ourselves approaching everything the senior attempts to do, in the same manner. 

What message are we sending them? Better yet, what message are they getting? Is it respectful or disrespectful? 

For me personally, I find peace, most of the time, in helping when mom asks. 

This post has nothing to do with my thoughts concerning someone with dementia. This post is to provoke thought.
