Diary of a Singaporean Cabby: An Old Lady with Dementia & Dignity.

The attached link, written by a blogger in Singapore, describes his experience as a cab driver when he picked up a woman with dementia who needed to get from Point A to Point B but who lacked the cognitive capacity to effectively do so.

Personally, I think he excelled at compassion and even though he feels he could have done more, I respect him for what he did do.  We don’t want to entertain the thought of someone who might have taken advantage of this woman but there are many who would have looked at this situation as an opportunity to exploit her vulnerability.

I congratulate you, Lim James, for showing all of us that goodness exists, and it exists in your soul.
