Police Officer Becomes Caretaker For Lonely Elderly Man After Meeting Him On Duty

A police officer is being praised online for showing kindness towards an elderly man in hospital. A story shared by Georgia Law Enforcement, it says that the police officer met Bob two years ago while being on duty.


The post further said, “Lawrenceville Police Officer Dena Walker Pauly’s life was changed forever when she was dispatched to a local pawn shop, where staff were unsure how to help him.

Bob has been on his own since childhood with no known family and homeless till he met with an incident which left him non-verbal.

She also sought and received a Power of Attorney for Bob’s medical care, and he has been in the hospital since May. It was an important day for Bob and Dena when she had to start hospice care for Bob, so she held his hand and told him many times that she loved him, probably the first to ever say that to him.
