4. Problems We Had To Overcome

The most difficult thing when we were being volunteer in Hua-Shan is meeting old people, we don't know how to chat with them or find some conversation that can make us with no ambassador, after all there's different with what we thinking, so it makes us hard to chat with them.

When we followed the Huashan’s volunteer to go to the elder’s houses to send them rice. At the beginning, we are embarrassed when we were talking to the elder. Almost were the volunteer and granny talking, and we just followed them. When we were going to next granny’s house, we ask the volunteer how to chat with the elder, and she taught us. After, we chat with the old people happily.

5. Our Project Sound Bite

This is the first touch of special topic about old person's live. From we don't know how to do it, and begin searching information, and went to visit the old people, the process had many funny things. Although we didn't know what can we talk with them, the volunteer lead us, and also know their family background and lifestyle. And we also found that two of our meat are good friends.

After the interview, we started to use the info to make the pages. Although the process had many problem, the page forming slowly. And when we finished this. We are so happy that we couldn't say anything. We spend much time making this page, so we really learned many things. This us really a good experience!

6. How did your activities and research for this CyberFair Project support standards, required coursework and curriculum standards?

By this competition, we not only learn the team work's spirit, but also exert what we learned in the class. Because there are many works have to do this time, we allotted the works.

Although we first join the competition, we can learn more things from this experiences, and we saw and to the volunteers and old people, let us have more chances to touch the outsiders. And we also know there are many people need help in this world! If we could help them, just do it!

And make the pages to introduce them to everyone to let you know how they do themselves' best to help people. Help you can understand them and let more people to see their paid.

3) What has been the impact of your project on your community?

To visit some of the elderly living , some elderly people family is poor, but they are still very happy to welcome us, and we found that grandparents who live alone are sincere, not contrived , get along very well , Although we're not accustomed to warm treat people do not know , but in the process of talking with them , some of the elderly interacts , to make our hearts touched , we deeply feel that as long as the open-minded , it fact , people with sense of distance between people can eliminate the grandparents, they were very happy that we visit them and kindly share the information what there have. We realized that , if a person can really treat people , the distance between people can be shortened a lot , and expect the government to face up the problem of an aging population , do not let the world be more of elderly people living alone .

4) How did your project involve other members of your community as helpers and volunteers?

They are a foundation in Kaohsiung to help the elder.Their services are Disability, Dementia, and unsupported. There are six kinds of their services. Fisrt, Drive and pick up those three. Second, Make phone call to elders who live alone. Third, Set up educational health center for them. fourth, hold the enents for them. Fifth, Promote Combination family project of elders in community. Sixth, Professional consultation and referral. Their services are for free. When they are helping those people, they are happy. Because they think they can help them is a good things, they don't want the elder tp give them anythings, they judt want them be happy and healthly.

5) Discoveries, Lessons and Surprises (Optional)

There are a lot the elder live around us. But we don’t notice that. It is not convenient for those old people to do anything. Even though some of them live alone. And they all have their own special stories.

I learned many things in this Husahsn service. Helping and taking care of them in the nursing home are important.
