The worries that affect elders

This week Drew and I are planning on taking off really early Thursday morning to drive at least 12 of the 14 hours to Charleston, South Carolina in order to see my son Reese who is attending The Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina.

Drew and I are both very excited and Reese is thrilled, but my seniors are concerned to say the least and sad at the most.

There are times when a caregiver is the only contact that a senior has for an entire day. My seniors are lucky in that they have really loving family members that are concerned about their health and well-being and are fully present in their lives.

That does not mean that the ladies are not concerned, however. They get really attached and look forward to the interaction that we have developed.

I feel very responsible, but nonetheless, I am certain that they will receive quality care and I will be able to see my beloved child that I have not seen for about seven weeks. The next time I will see him will be in another seven weeks. I will cherish this visit!

When I return, I will make certain that my senior ladies are taken are of to the best of my abilities for I understand that With Age Comes Respect and I plan on fulfilling that mission in every way that I can! Motherhood has taught me the best ways to be this caring.
