When someone is still coherent, don't assume they are cold or uncomfortable. Don't assume they want blankets up to their neck or socks on. I told my sister, "Please ask Daddy if he wants socks on" or "Please ask Daddy if he is cold before you put a blanket on." Don't wake him up to ask him. PLEASE BE CONSIDERATE OF THEM. Peace.

My wife always complained that I gave her too much food on her plate, even though it was a very small portion. It was suggested to me that I keep the food away from the outer sloping edges of the plate and flatten the food more, instead of putting it in small piles. IT WORKED; no more moaning.

Wow, imagine what solutions the caregiver next to you in the emergency waiting room, pharmacy check-out line or even the hair salon has for you…or what advice you may have for them. You’ll never know until you introduce yourself.
