Eldercare Blog Carnival


The act of compassion begins with full attention, just as rapport does. You have to really see the person. If you see the person, then naturally, empathy arises. If you tune into the other person, you feel with them. If empathy arises, and if that person is in dire need, then empathic concern can come. You want to help them, and then that begins a compassionate act. So I'd say that compassion begins with attention. -- Daniel Goleman

I think Mr. Goleman is correct.  Here are some others who are paying attention and acting on their compassion:

Kaye Swain presents How to Perk Up Your Aging Parent's Day by Spiffing Up Their Walker posted at SandwichINK.com, saying, "Walkers are wonderful blessings to our aging parents,when they need them, but they are not the most attractive items. Even my dad's, which I thought looked quite spiffy, still looked like a walker. WalkerWonders gives them a nice sense of personality. SandwichINK has a special one for Fathers to giveaway!"
