端午長者探訪反思

4A(14) Abbie Lam

經過這次探訪活動,我學會了兩件重要的事:體諒和關懷。

當人的年紀越來越大,身體的健康問題就越是嚴重。到了「老人」的年紀,更是需要別人的體諒。我在活動中得知婆婆有許多不方便的地方,所以我們對老人更要體諒。

除此之外,我明白到對老人的關懷也是必要的。他們的生活並不像我們那般精彩,而是沈悶的,所以只要我們更曉得關懷他們,就能令他們更開心。

總而言之,這活動意義深長。

今天我們去了探訪長者。我們探訪的是一對夫妻,他們都很友善,對我們很好,一見面就感謝我們去探訪他們。與我想像的不同,長者的生活並非很無聊很孤獨,他們也會參加社區活動,打牌、聊天、交朋友。

伯伯還跟我們分享他的人生經驗,並指家庭裡最重要的是溝通。從他的語氣中,我能聽出他很希望家中能有人陪他聊天。但同時伯伯也很為自己的兒孫自豪,他說他一直教他們道理,現在他的孫子已經成為一名醫生,他的兒子為他購買這間房子。

在伯伯分享期間,他的妻子雖然嫌棄他話多,但是也跟我們說了他們平日生活中的苦處。婆婆說她較多病痛,要吃很多藥,感慨還是年輕時好。伯伯和婆婆還抱怨很多津貼都申請不了。我聽了後心情有點壓抑。

透過與他們的對話,我了解了很多長者的煩惱,但也明白到他們最希望的其實只是兒女的陪伴,能夠關心他們。我也反思了我們為人子女,也要多多關心自己的父母。

This time, as a senior, I go more confidence to ask the elderly questions. I got to understand more about them and their condition. In some ways, I felt quite sorry for them and I wish I could do more to help them. It was interesting to know about their history and information about them. They were really grateful for our visit and I was glad to hear that. This experience has helped me understand them more now. I wish I was better at Chinese, so I can ask them more questions as I was curious. They seem to have a simple life here in Hong Kong. I want to be able to help them more so I can see more elderlies being happy!

Throughout this activity, I have experienced that I am really close or attached to elderly people especially. I love to listen to them, they feel comfortable talking to us, which is really nice.

And I have learnt that, respecting and elderly presence are precious and important, they will taught me life values, which were useful as they have already gone through. I have learnt to respect and he really patient. I have gained memories. I feel proud to be volunteering and leading and guiding the junior forms. Overall, I learnt to cooperate as well with my group mates.

We had to lead the lower form students to find and talk to the elderly. However, we could not find the place ourselves, it took us 30 minutes to find the place and at the end we only had 15 minutes to talk to the elderly. She was cooking food when we entered. She seemed extremely delighted to have us. Her home was beautifully decorated with photos of her family. We asked if she lives with them and she sadly said no. However, she seemed to be pretty happy and content with what she had. Therefore I have learnt to adjust to my surroundings and be content with whatever I have. Moreover, I have learnt to care for and guide younger people.

這天,我和同學們在FA時段到了櫻桃街大廈訪問了一位伯伯和婆婆。這次是我第二次上門探訪長者,但仍然有點緊張。我被安排訪問一位伯伯。起初,我以為長者都是難以溝通的,怎料伯伯和婆婆都非常開朗,訪問亦很順利。我們組的組員問了很多問題,例如:生活狀況、經濟狀況等。伯伯也分享了很多人生經驗,令我獲益良多。這次義工活動使我和長者有了交流,使我發現長者也不全是守舊派。我也學會了要嘗試了解長者,不要以貌取人。只要我們耐心和長者交談,便會發現他們的人生經驗是難能可貴的。「家有一老,如有一寶」也是如此道理。

我認為這次的長者探訪很有意義。這次探訪使我學習到說話技巧,另外,我還了解了長者的生活和習慣。雖然這次時間緊迫,但是我也學到很多,既幫助了別人,自己也感到快樂。我探訪的婆婆十分樂觀,雖然她的身體不太健康,住的地方不大,一個人孤獨地生活,但是她一直抱著積極的生活態度。她是我們的榜樣,我很欣賞她的態度。

At first, although I had experiences in the past, I was scared because I didn’t really know how to deal with elderly. I was so nervous that my legs were shaking when my group was at the door. But when I entered the house, I saw a friendly-looking lady with a huge smile on her face. My heart was still pounding but not as much. We talked for a while and I started to get used to talk to her. I’ve learnt a lot about the life of an elderly, the fact that the lady’s husband passed away and she doesn’t have any children just breaks my heart. I have learnt that we really need to treasure what we have now because we don’t know what the future holds. We left with a huge smile on our faces and hopefully the lady will enjoy the dumpling we gave her!

After the visit to the elderly’s home, I learned a lot of things! The elderly that I visited, she is Mrs. Wong, she is really nice as she asked us if we need some tea when we just go inside her home. One of the things that I have learnt is to be thankful. Firstly, Mrs. Wong is really thankful for us to come and chat with her, so I think I should be thankful that I have a family to support me whenever I am in need. Secondly, I should be thankful for what I have, like friends, they are always by my side when I am lonely or sad. Besides that, I also learnt that electronic devices are not a must that we use it for entertainment, it is just an accessory. We can play board games, chess or just chatting with friends face-to-face! It is just easy as that. Also, I have learnt that having a healthy body is really important to everyone!

今天我們去探訪了兩位老人。黃公公和吳婆婆。他們住的地方很小,但他們看起來總是笑瞇瞇的,也許是因為他們很樂觀吧。

我們和他們交談後才知道,他們每天都只是在看電視、散步、休息中度過。公公婆婆們有時候會去外面做運動,度過這漫長的時光。

我覺得他們很可憐,沒有人陪他們說話、過日子,只是孤獨地兩個人住在一起,共度時光。

我們應該珍惜現在的美好時光,不要等錯過了才後悔。珍惜現在所擁有的一切,我們每一個人都應該做到。

在這次探訪長者的活動中,我們探訪的是一位住海富苑的長者——陳伯伯。他和他的兒子一起住,但他的兒子不是外出上班,就是留在家中對著電腦,甚少理會他的父親陳伯伯。

經過這次活動,我認為作為子女,應多關懷父母及其他長者。不過,我覺得如果要以此類型的義工活動關懷長者,使用長期探訪及跟進的做法會更好。
