It takes some time for elders to adjust to the fact that they need a helping hand. My job is to make certain that they feel the necessary love to know that they have made the right decision by choosing me as their caregiver.
It takes a respective amount of time for each elder to transition to having someone besides their family to take care of them, personally and physically. It is how it affections them emotionally that indicates if the transition is healthy or not.
Yesterday was an absolutely marvelous day with both of my ladies! Both their families and the women that I care for told me how nice it is that I service them by taking care of the small stuff.
I am so pleased. Each time I hear that another individual is happy around me and that they feel comforted in my care, my heart swells with gratitude for the kind words that I receive. Every day that I carry forth my small tasks for the women, I can’t help but think how very easy it is to just be nice and that is 90% of the battle.
If only the mass majority of people could get it through their minds that With Age Comes Respect. The world would be a much better place if only we could all get along and respect one another!
