Grounded on core values of respect, love, and service to the elderly, the Xin Yue Senior Citizen Service Center of Chongqing, China, promotes social work services for senior citizens and builds harmonious living environment for them.
It’s International Women’s Day, to send greetings for the senior citizens in nursing home, social workers purchased carnation for women senior citizens. Social workers were divided into several groups and visited grannies. They sent greetings, “granny, happy Women’s Day! Wish you health and pretty forever!” Some of grannies were happy and said, “thank you”. Some lowered their head and appreciated the flowers with smiles. Some of grannies were not able to express due to health problems. They just looked at the social workers and the flowers. Some of them were unconscious and social workers put the flowers beside their beds. The fragrance would go around the room and to the heart of the senior citizens.
It was more than flower. It was the greetings that went around. It was happiness and respect. In greeting words and happiness, the activity was closed successfully.
