1. At the personal level: Sooner (for myself) or later (for the students), we’re going to be in the role of the elderly, whether in good health or otherwise. The session gives us an opportunity to “foresee” our “future”, to appreciate the present (show appreciation to your parents/grandparents now, don’t waitl…), and to emphathize with the elderly we encountered.
2. At the macro level: The students’ first-hand encounter with the elderly provide them with a brief overview of the issues that our aging society is facing now. From the elderly who visit the centre, I appreciate the importance of active and healthy aging. From those whose homes students’ visited, I appreciate the importance of community active engagement and bonding with the elderly and their care-givers. And from those who are volunteers, we see the importance of giving back to society, that volunteerism is not limited by age (active volunteers who are above 80) and the value of “paying it forward” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pay_it_forward).
