Muskingum County Center For Seniors Spotlight David Fowler - Driver

I’ve had the privilege of working for the Muskingum County Center for Seniors for the last 11 months. I have gotten very close to a lot of my clients. I’ve had the experience in the last 2 to 3 months of having some of my clients going to assisted living where I won’t see them every day. We had gotten to know each other and had shared things over the last 11 months. In the last 2 to 3 months, I’ve had some of them going to these facilities, but they waited around one last day to tell me goodbye and how much they appreciated what I do and what the Muskingum County Senior Center has done for them. They wanted to wait one more day to shake my hand or offer a hug to show their appreciation and tell me goodbye.

I think that I was under the pretense, like a lot of other people that this program (Meals on Wheels) is a government funded program. I thought there wasn’t going to be much to do and that it would be just a job. Since I have been doing this, I have found that it is more than just a job. It is a meaningful way of letting people know that there are other people outside of their family who actually care for them. I am the only personal contact a lot of my clients have daily. If I could bring that one happy moment to them or a smile to their face, it makes the whole job worthwhile.

I had gotten to know Mr. H. over the years and got to know him better through this job. His wife was to leave for an assisted living facility, but she stuck around until I got there to tell me goodbye and how much she appreciated what I did for them every day. Mr. H’s last day was today and he was to join his wife at the assisted living facility. He stuck around to shake my hand and tell me how much it was privilege for him to get to know me and for me to be able to be called a friend of his. It really touched me in the heartstrings. I’m glad I was able to bring happiness to him and just be able to talk to him if he was having a bad day.
