Katie Cheeseman The Listening ear project
Hi! I'm Katie Cheesman. From the time I was young, I've always had a love for the elderly. As I have worked with this special population in my nursing career, I have come to know how vital the elderly are to our society and how much we can learn from their life experiences and wisdom.

While working in the healthcare field, I have noticed that usually these sweet people just want someone to sit and talk with them, but that need is often overlooked due to busy schedules. I can provide all of the medication and treatments in the world, but what they really want is someone to listen.

I decided to be a listening ear for this generation and share their incredible stories that deserve to be heard. It's been such a rewarding experience for me! Some other things I enjoy are spending time with my husband and baby girl -- they are my world, scouting out and trying new restaurants, traveling, reading, and doing yoga. 

If you want to see cute old people and hear rad stories, feel free to follow along! @thelisteningearproject
Join me in this movement and find a grandparent, neighbor or friend who has a story to tell or who would just like a visit.

- Katie.
