Some people think it is OK to charge an ill person for services rendered. The Sick person could be elderly and living on limited funds. If you can afford to buy them items do it out of the goodness of your heart and do not charge them for the things you have done for them. Someday you will be elderly and living on limited funds yourself.
Years ago a high paying job for people paid $20,000.00 a year in wages. Now the cost of an average nursing home is $6800.00 to $9000.00 a month. The money they made in one year is gone in about 2 to 3 months. Their social security check is only about $600.00 a month. Their money goes very quickly in their old age. Be a good steward and help them out as often as you possibly can. Never take advantage of a down and out person for you have sunk as low as you can if you do so. I have no time for opportunist or vultures.
Never ask a person for their possessions while they are alive or steal from them. You are a poor excuse for a human being if you have to rob from the sick and dying. The person has made out a will and if you are not in it live with it. Treat people how you want to be treated when you are sick or dying and remember you are setting an example for your children and how they will be treating you down the road.
Do not be a vulture preying on those who are dying. The person whom you are preying on will see you for your true colors. I have seen people just waiting for someone to die and what they might do with their money. People have told me they have made out new wills after they have overheard relatives talking about how they will be spending their money or who will be getting each one of their possessions. If you want money work for it like everyone else has over the years. Never except things to handed to you on a silver platter.
Respect your elders and love and honor them in sickness and be with them through the good and the bad times. May God bless you and all of of your sick, elderly and Ill friends. Remember we are growing older each and everyday. Make life for those you know as pleasant as possible each day that we are blessed to be on earth.
