A VISIT TO OLD PEOPLE’S HOME CONSTANTA OUR FORM TEACHER, CRISTINA GILA, HAD THE INITIATIVE TO ORGANIZE A VISIT TO THE OLD PEOPLE’S HOME IN OUR CITY. WE ARE 11TH GRADE STUDENTS AND WE ARE GLAD TO SHARE OUR EXPERIENCE WITH YOU. IT WAS THE 8TH OF MARCH-MOTHER’S DAY…
We are happy to hear that theelders enjoy our visit very much
Giving the ladies symbolic gifts:we, Romanians, have a spring custom of offering ladies flowers and small trinkets (“martisoare”)tied up with white and red strings, representing purity and the coming back to life of the natural world.
Impressions after the visit Claudia: “I had the feeling I made their day happier.” Eugen: “I thought of my grandparents when they greeted us with so much warmth.” Ana: “ I feel we should visit them more often. They develop all sorts of activities there and enjoy having guests, too.” Georgiana:” I was impressed by the strong bonds that seemed to have been created between them. They look like a big family, with us their nephews.”
From other people’s wisdom … “When older and younger people work together they complement each other. Young people have physical strength and older ones have experience which they can share with the young,” said Mette Frederiksen, and used the Danish construction firm ‘Enemærke og Petersen’ as an example of someone who, according to her: “makes the most out of their employees of all ages.”
