To keep the heart unwrinkled, to be hopeful, kindly, cheerful, reverent - that is to triumph over old age.

Have you ever considered all that Senior Citizens do for you and your family? You may not realize it but your friends and relatives may help you with services that would otherwise cost you money or prevent you from saving for the future.
Here are two examples of activities which might be helped by a willing Senior relative or friend.
Child care quickly comes to mind. You may be looking for someone to care for an infant, or small child while you are working, shopping, spending time with an adult, or just needing a break. Who can you call upon for help? Try a Senior. Maybe you are lucky enough to have a relative who will take on the task. An older friend may be available and appropriate.
You may want to start a new activity such as fishing. You have seen a Senior neighbor carry his poles and other equipment to the car. Chances are this person, when approached, will help you to find where to get a fishing license, poles and other equipment. Not only that, he may be able to show you a few good fishing sites.
In their journey through life, Seniors have come across a lot of experiences. They have talents and sometimes these can be shared with younger people who need assistance but don't know where to find it. They can guide us and help us find solutions. Just ask them. See what they say. Build a friendship or get better acquainted with your relatives.
