Helping Soldiers With Cigar Boxes?
I was delighted to see that John Kelly of The Washington Post did a great article and video featuring Bob Schapiro, one of the subjects of my post last week about living a life with “purpose”.
Bob is a curious man who doesnt let grass grow under his feet and he seems to find purpose, friends and meaningful activities easily on his own. I think its important for those of us working in this field to serve as a “guide” by getting to know those we are working with on a deeper level and help them brainstorm ways they can engage in meaningful connections.
In the video, Bob states “I am doing something with my time that is worthwhile” a great reminder that this desire to serve others is ageless and shouldnt stop just because someone lives in a senior living community!
