You have to start somewhere!

I never ever thought I would one day grow up and discover that I wanted to help out elderly individual, but here I am and I am happy to say that I am better off for it! Each person that I have been able to assist has brought a special type of happiness to my world.

When I take the time, applying hours, days, even months of patience to an individual, it pays off. In the end, I am the one that ends up winning.

Take for example my very first client, Mira. ImageAlthough she was only my client for a very short period of time, she became my very best friend in this world. She used to say that we were kindred spirits; two individuals with similar experiences and similar thoughts and feelings. The more we talked, the more we found out that we were alike.

When Mira passed away on December 21st of 2012, I thought my heart would break. Although she slipped peacefully into eternal slumber at Central DuPage Hospital in Illinois, the fact that she slipped so fast was very tough to handle. She believed in the doctors and nurses and so did I; knowing that they truly cared made all the difference in the world.

The professionals and I both realize that with age comes respect. Just because a person gets older does not mean that they deserve anything but the best that we have to give them. In fact, I know that I am lucky just to get the chance to serve those that I serve.
