National Active Agers’ Rummy-O Meet 2017
Reflections and experiences shared by students
I feel very satisfied as this activity has given me the opportunity to volunteer to help the community. Working with the elderly and seeing their happy faces as I counted their scores after each game put a smile on my face as I knew I had done a good service for them. I have also learnt to be polite and to communicate better with the senior citizens as some of them have hearing difficulties.
Being proactive and observant is very important during the game activity as I needed to count the scores after each game whenever the senior citizens raised their hands for help. I was satisfied after each counting session as I knew they needed me to help them out. Through my volunteering, I have gained new experiences in working with the elderly and working with people in my community. Overall, it was a very meaningful and satisfying experience for me.
