  • Is it hard to push an elder on a wheelchair?

    I want to volunteer and one of the tasks is helping the elderly get to their destination. And that includes people who need a wheelchair. I know it sounds stupid, but I don t want to volunteer and then realize that I m struggling to push the wheelchair.

  • How can I get my dad to consider retirement when he’s been unwell?

    He has high blood pressure, muscle spasms that last for minutes and absence seizures from all the stress. He’s only 64, quite fit and he has more than enough money to retire.

    He has high blood pressure, muscle spasms that last for minutes and absence seizures from all the stress. He’s only 64, quite fit and he has more than enough money to retire. But he tells me he’d rather die behind the wheel of his work truck than retire and he is his work is who he is. He has no friends or hobbies and doesn’t want a comfortable retirement. All he’s ever done is work. The thing is his dad is 98 and still alive and his mother lived to 89 so I feel he may have a lot of time left. How do I get him to slow down and enjoy life?

    I'm 27 and my mother is 67, so I understand she's not getting any younger lol. As a senior its wise to have all affairs in order, but she constantly brings up death and her demise etc. We were having a convo about if I had children in near future, and she was giving advice like she KNEW for a fact she wouldn't be around to see them. I could see her saying 'I hope I'm still around to see my grandkids' but she talks like she won't be around at all and it made me upset thinking about how my dad passed when I was young and never will. She has no health issues, the doctor mentioned that she's in good health for her age. I know some actual elderly and terminally ill ppl who are living what's left of their lives to the fullest, yet she always talks like this?

  • My dad says he never wants to retire but he can easily afford it and his business is taking a toll on his health?

    He says he would rather die behind the wheel of his work truck than retire. He has high blood pressure and recurring muscle spasms from the mental and physical stress of his business. He says his work is what he is and he doesn’t know how to be anything else. He’s 64 and has enough money to easily retire.

  • Senior citizens, are you disappointed with how your life went? what went wrong?

    Best answer: No way. My 80th birthday was Wednesday, and I'm pretty happy with my life. What went wrong was I was an old man in my 20s.

    Best answer: No way. My 80th birthday was Wednesday, and I'm pretty happy with my life. What went wrong was I was an old man in my 20s. Full of responsibility for other people's values, and trying to walk a tightrope of morality and obligation. Then my wife ran off with a theater guy, and I began to reassess my values.
    I quit letting other people define my values and my value as a person. I became proactive in training my ego to love me instead of dissing me (every morning in the shower). I defined my life goals, and began working toward them. And I did an inventory on my weaknesses, and shored up that weren't up to the career path I followed.
    It worked, and I have a wonderful if sometimes irritating mate, a great place to live and engaging hobbies. I work hard to keep my mind active, and to be engaged (currently in politics, no surprise).
    To end up satisfied in life, you have to define what will make you happy, and work toward a goal OF YOUR OWN DEFINITION. Simple, and it works.

  • Senior citizens, do you think a young person disagreeing with you equals disrespect?

    Best answer: No, not at all. Just because it's a young person does not mean they don't know what they're talking about. In the US we have free speech and I respect that. I LIKE it when someone respectfully disagrees with me and is able to present facts. I am not above learning from anyone. Even if they are younger... show more
