Promote independence. Nobody wants to feel like they are no longer independent or that someone is coming and taking over. Encourage and motivate seniors to do what they can safely and comfortably do for themselves, and provide the necessary support to do so.

 

Practice empathy. Regularly putting yourself in a senior position and thinking about how you would like to be treated if the roles were reversed is a useful exercise. This can mean putting your personal feelings aside in order to better understand the feelings of the other person.

 

Be creative. Think outside the box to brighten every day. For example, explain "MilkShake Mondays" on Mondays by experimenting with making and trying new flavors. If an adult loves dogs, invite a veterinary therapist or spend the afternoon at a local charity.
