Be a Good Samaritan This Month

During the holidays, we especially enjoy hearing about Good Samaritan stories. Just recently, A-1 Home Care heard a story on the news about Don Holder and Dorothy Shepard. Don Holder was an off duty cop in Texas who would often come across 77 year old widow Dorothy Shepard in his neighborhood. Suffering from many health issues, she  was left on her own to recover from surgery. left on her own  When he went to visit her while she was in the hospital, he gave her his cell phone number in case she ever needed his help. After that, he would be seen around town helping Dorothy with errands such as grocery shopping. And what’s most admirable of all is that the officer didn’t seek to gain fame or attention through his acts. In fact, he hadn’t intended that this story be heard, but it wasn’t until this photo was captured by a bystander at a  grocery story that his act of kindness became known.


This story shows us what it means to be selfless, caring and how to show kindness. It’s amazing that even amidst the disgusting show of violence that we see from police brutality, there are still those who will go out of their way to do something kind for another. We believe that these are important qualities that should be in every individual , but especially in caregivers.
