Сегодня популярность набирает довольно-таки интересный тренд: исследование старых заброшенных сооружений.
Естественно, это хобби, но много авантюристы сталкиваются с такими явлениями, которые раз и навсегда изменяют их жизнь.
Лесли Дэвид живет в Онтарио, Канада. Он часто делится своими историями в Интернете.
Однажды, возвращаясь с работы домой, она увидела старый »заброшенный» дом, и решила однажды зайти туда.
Tonight was the first of what will be many dinner dates with my new friend. Over the course of 3 hours we ate and drank and laughed. I was fortunate enough to hear about his life.. His struggles and his triumphs. This truly was one of the best experiences of my life & I can’t wait to share another meal with such a gentle soul. #abandoned #thetourist #lost_souls #new_friends #twistedtea @twistedtea
Пробравшись внутрь, женщина была удивлена и шокирована, найдя внутри старика по имени Лоуренс.
Лоуренс жил один, а состояние его здоровья оставляло желать лучшего.
Один глаз старика был затронут катарактой, а второй вообще не видел.
Опьяненная добротой этого человека, Лесли решила сделать все возможное, чтобы помочь ему.
Update: A few weeks ago my friend asked if I would go to a church BBQ with him … Our first outing!!! I was so happy he had asked me and couldn’t wait to go. Tonight was our dinner date … The food was amazing .. Provided by the local farmers in the neighbourhood and way too much pie baked by all their lovely wives. It was great to see him out of the house and around the people he’s known his whole life. Driving home tonight I couldn’t help but think to myself how lucky I am to have this opportunity to be a part of such a wonderful persons life. My friend is truly a blessing xo #thetourist #lost_souls #new_friends #abandoned

Дэвид начала посещать Лоуренс несколько раз в неделю. Причем, она каждый раз фотографировала его, чтобы люди со всех концов планеты видели его улучшения.
И действительно: девушка изменила жизнь старика.
Promises kept. || an update on my friend — he is in good spirits and is very happy to have some room in his home. I’ve managed to remove his old fridge, stove, and chest freezer, along with numerous bags of garbage and other content. This was all made possible by a very generous company and a few awesome boys with big hearts and strong lower backs. I can’t thank everyone enough for their support and generosity during this period in my life — and in his. He is beyond grateful, not just to me. He knows you are all following his story 🙂 After a few recent visits to the doctors, it’s apparent that his health is declining, rapidly. These may be the last few months I have with my friend and I plan to make them as comfortable and enjoyable for him as possible. He’s informed me of his funeral arrangements and has asked me to be there. I told him I wouldn’t have it any other way. He shared something with me that will stay with me forever. He said the day I showed up was the best day of his life. As self righteous as I feel writing that, I understand how he feels. The best day of my life was when I met him. He gave me the chance to really do something for someone — an act of kindness with no expectation of reward. It’s a rare opportunity and I’m glad I was able to accept the challenge. — xo #thetourist #new_friends #lost_souls
Проблемы со здоровьем у Лоуренса начались в 2000 году, когда он сломал бедро. После этого он перенес инсульт.
С помощью друзей, родственников и местной благотворительной компании, Дэвид решила организовать лечение старика.
Когда Лоуренс перенес второй инсульт, Дэвид постоянно была рядом, помогая старику во всех мелких делах.
”Лоуренс признался мне, что день встречи со мной был лучшим днем в его жизни».
Дэвид до сих пор продолжает держать читателей в курсе всех изменений, которые происходят со стариком.
Legit pissed right now. Lawrence & I play BINGO every Thursday at the retirement home he lives at and the staff have been more than accomodating and amazing to say the least whenever Lawrence needed assistance or a favour. Recently, Lawrence was moved to another area of the retirement home (palliative care) which I can only assume is an attempt by his «family» to save what little money he has to his name by cancelling his extra home care in the retirement wing of the home, thus enhancing their inheritance. Tonight I went for my usual visit and to bring him back over to play BINGO with his friends. After three nurses refused to help me move him from his bed to his wheel chair (stating that they were too busy and he was already in bed… 6:45 pm) Lawrence asked how strong I was feeling and if I thought I would be able to get him into his chair and outside….he also added he hadn’t been outside since Monday…. I told him I had been «lifting» …or whatever the kids are into these days… And that I would get him outside and to his game no matter what. After a successful transfer into his chair I snuck him out of his room and outside to get some sunshine and fresh air (and a smoke) When I brought him back to his room at 8:30, I was met with absolute disrespect and hostility from the PSW at the desk. She told me I needed to ask someone to get him out of bed … When I told her I had asked 3 different staff members, she replied «They said you never asked». I asked if they were still working as I woud like them to tell me I never requested assistance. One women was bold enough to lie to her manager and to my face about her mistreatment of Lawrence and how she had handled my request. They asked if I come by every Thursday… My response was «you can bet everything you have you’ll be seeing me a lot more now» I took him back to his room as I didn’t think he needed to hear anymore. He hugged me and thanked me and told me he was so happy to have someone stand up for him. Please keep an eye on the ones you love, never let them go unnoticed, or forgotten… And never allow anyone to think it is okay to treat them like anything less than human. #BeHuman

Паллиативная помощь – вид медицины, который сосредоточен на поддержании здоровья пациентов в комфортных условиях.
Ранее Дэвид заявила своим читателям, что постарается быть с Лоуренсом столько, сколько потребуется!
