It is a pleasing experience to give your time to “be present” for another and bring a smile to someone’s face.

Please email register@muslimfoodbank.com if you would like to be a volunteer or are a Senior requiring support.A BLESSED EXPERIENCE!

A few weeks ago, I was able to visit a senior in the hospital on behalf of the MFBCS. I felt nervous, overwhelmed and not sure what to do but took it on as a creative challenge. I truly did not know what to expect and what difference it would make in their lives.

I would never have predicted how pleasant my visit would be. After speaking to the elder, I was amazed at the wealth of knowledge she had. As a volunteer, I connected to a person who has interesting stories to share... their life story with a lifetime of experiences.

I have realized that perhaps all people need is the opportunity to engage with someone different from their family to take their mind off their illness or disability. To make them feel respected and validated, even by a simple stranger.

Moreover, I was stunned by how selfless she was to ask me how I am and to tell me to take care of myself yet she is the one critically ill in hospital.

To me, this was a meaningful and positive experience that has initiated in me a process of self-development and reflection. Cognitive abilities change in elders with normal aging. I have learned to be more aware of how older people experience these changes and the impact that diminishing socialization has on them.

It is a pleasing experience to give your time to “be present” for another and bring a smile to someone’s face.
