The Gift of Independence

Recently I had the privilege of spending time with a few amazing senior ladies in New Bern.

Due to medical reasons or they reached the age to give up their cars, they needed assistance running errands or getting to appointments.  Family and friends are happy to drive them when they can, but sometimes busy schedules intercede.  The families reached out to me because I love to help seniors and their loved ones.  

It was an amazing experience spending a few hours with each of them. I got to hear wonderful stories about their families and all they’ve experienced in their lives. They were the youngest seniors I’ve ever met in mind and spirit!

Giving up driving is a very hard decision to make and losing that sense of freedom is hard to adjust to. My neighbor has had a hair appointment every Friday at 11:00am…… for the past 52 years! It was a gift to me spending time with these amazing ladies, and I was glad to provide them with the gift of independence.

I hope if you, or someone you know, needs assistance running errands, you’ll call me @ 252-288-4467.
