Assistant Activity Director
Common courtesy, respect and consideration are things that should come naturally. There are still some people who show respect and consideration for others. Sometimes, it is the littlest things that mean the most, for example, holding a door open for someone. Saying thank you, please, ma'am, sir and excuse me are a few words that mean a lot and show a great deal of respect. But, when you say them, you need to mean it and not just say it because it's the thing to do.
If you can't find it in your heart to respect other people, then just don't disrespect them. It saves a lot of hurt feelings. One way of disrespecting others and not realizing what you are doing is by the things we say and how we say them. Most people, while growing up, were taught to respect their elders, and that is great because we should. But, we should also respect everyone else, regardless of age. Working at Heritage Manor, you see day to day it is the smallest things that make the residents happy. For example, getting them a glass of water or a cup of coffee, getting the door for them or pushing their wheelchair to the dining room or back to their room.
So, if little things like that can make a resident happy, why would anyone want to hurt their feelings by disrespecting them? Be kind and make someone happy.
