What to Say: Homebound Senior

I’ve just started working with an organization that pairs younger mobile people with homebound seniors. The youngers visit the olders in their homes. Easy enough.

But then I have to think of things to say to a stranger.

Me: Hello.
Older: Good morning.
Me: ….
Older (calls organization): I would like to return my current person and get a different person.

Let me try again.

Me: Good morning.
Older: Good morning.
Me: How’s tricks?
Older: Not good.
Me: Yahtzee anyone?
Me: Boggle?
Older: Can I get some help in here?

This is going to go great.
