It happened that I had to get up early to go to a faraway place at Keung Shan and Sha Lo Wan in Lantau Island to visit the elderly during the coldest two days. I was absolutely reluctant but I had already promised. I was half asleep and freezing when I started off unwillingly. After getting off, it was still a distance for me to walk to the old people’s home. The road was neither too long nor too difficult. Although the chilly wind blew by fits and starts, it was still better
Before our formal visit, a two-hour briefing session was held by Caritas Services for the Elderly district centre. We learnt a lot of communication techniques with the elderly and the method of measuring blood pressure. Then, we started our visit. This was the first time we visited singleton elders.

The students are very thoughtful and bought her some cooking oil and noodles. It is too short to meet the students only twice through which she was not able to build up better relationship with the students. She looks forward to being visited by new voluntary team in the coming school term.
The students bought her an umbrella to meet her need. They shared their good time of the school work in Beijing which enriched the granny’s life. The granny hoped that the half accomplished life album will be completed soon by the new voluntary team in the coming school term.
She felt that the relationship with students are gradually getting better and better. She would think of them and wanted to make a call to them. The students are very responsible and call her in advance before visiting her. They are very thoughtfulness and get her some daily necessities. She appreciated very much the help from students to complete the life album for her which means a lot to her. She welcome the visit of new voluntary team for the coming school term.
