Webster’s defines dignity as the quality or state of being worthy. The other day I defined it as the ability for a gentleman to give me directions on how to get to his dialysis appointment. Aging takes many things away from people: independence, worthiness and health among others, but it doesn’t have to take away their dignity. As a volunteer Community Transportation driver, I try to give my passengers a little dignity back each week. Even if I know the way to their appointment, I allow my passengers to tell me how to go and also go the route they feel is the best way. I know it is a little thing, but it makes them feel important and necessary. If that is the least I can do for my passengers, to make them feel needed, then it has been a good day.
