Difficult to handle

I can handle almost anything, but when one of my ladies gets sad because I have to go home for the day, that really tugs at my heart. I am so happy that I have developed a tight bond with my clients, but I never want that bond to cause any pain whatsoever.

Trust comes with time. Patience is certainly required when it comes to building the trust that you need to make the relationship of caregiver and client work proficiently.

Each day that I am able to perform my responsibilities well is another day that I grow fonder of the career that I have finally figured out was what I really wanted all along. Caregiving is the very essence of my soul! It is my way to be able to give without dishing out tons of cash in every direction.

The question that I will have to answer for myself and for my clients is how to handle their sadness and to explain to them that I will be there for them each and every day accept weekends. It is hard when memories begin to fade and the present is all that matters.

I will find a way because not only do I completely believe that With Age Comes Respect, but I live it each and every day of every week!
