I think that seniors sometimes forget how lovely they truly are. All they physically see is the wrinkles, popped-out veins, thin skin and the like. They no longer feel pretty or handsome, they feel old and discouraged.
I feel that it is my duty to ensure that seniors see the bright light that still shines within their soul; the one dying to still shine on the outside, too. As long as a senior is not hateful about life, they still have the light to share.
Since I believe that With Age Comes Respect, I also believe in bringing out that light for everyone to see. It is so easy to do, I only wish more people were willing to help bring the light to the surface!
Small things like doing a senior’s hair or nails, giving a man’s neck a buzz or applying a bit of makeup or cologne is so easy to do. Just think, these people were once young like you and me. We like to feel good, why shouldn’t they?
I see past all of the physical characteristics with my position as a personal caretaker. I am able to see the internal person for who they are and I have to admit that I fall in love with each and every client for the special qualities that they have about them!
They are simply beautiful creatures that God has granted to this great Earth.
