I had joined the "Elderly Visit" activity on 18 Jan 2020. On that day, I was visited solitary elderly with my classmate. Before activity start, our teacher was form some group, 2-3 peoples an one group. After that, we had listened social worker briefing, which aspect should be pay attention and took several gift to elderly.
Because Lunar new year was coming soon, elderly center were prepare some food and clothes to elderly. We had visited 3 elderlies in this activity, they have their own story and family background. Base on my observation, when we arrived each elderly's home, they are very happy and enthusiasm, they are initiative to share their life experience. Besides, our group mates were reminded them to take care themself and wear more clothes because the weather will be change suddenly. And the weather was getting cold on that day. Before finished to visit each elderly, we had asked him or her what he or she needed. If they have any request, we will refer to elderly center staff.
In the process of visiting, I had learnt team spirit and patience. Usually, elderly’s reaction would be slow, visitor should have more patience to an elderly.
