And How Are You Feeling This Morning?

Why do people feel they have to adopt a false-hearty, jollying-along tone of voice when they're talking to the very old? Ailz was noting that some of my mother's carers do it and others don't. We certainly don't. There's no need for it. My mother's deaf- and you may have to raise your voice to her and enunciate clearly- but you're not achieving anything by patronising her.
