Jackson Township Police Department NJ Officer comes to the aid of 84 year old woman in the kindest way

September 15, 2015 Eleanor Metzger 84 lives alone and uses a walker, she has severe arthritis and has assistance at times from nurses who stop by to help her. But on Tuesday evening she found she was having difficulty. So she used her life alert button she wears and Officer James Reynolds came to her aid.

Mrs. Metzger recalls to ABC7 with great enthusiasm how Officer Reynolds took care of her as she needed to take her medication but needed to take it with food. Her problem was that she was unable to reheat any of the frozen food because her microwave was unplugged and she was unable to reach it in her walker.

Officer Reynolds sat her down at her table, cooked her food, cut her meat and potatoes and made sure she ate. Mrs. Metzger was able to take her medication and Officer Reynolds even cleaned up her dishes for her when she was done.

Mrs. Metzger tells SBTV2 news “and it was so good. It tasted BETTER, because he did it!” with a great amount of thankfulness in her voice.

This small act of kindness was not lost on the small community, however Officer Reynolds said “Police officers do this kind of thing every day, maybe not cook meals, but there’s always a positive side and I’m glad to see it’s getting some attention,” he also told ABC7 “It’s nice. Anytime that I can do something to make someone’s day better, it makes my day better,”
