There are times on the job that you just know that you are doing what it is that you are supposed to be doing; that your job is the most important thing in this world – not only to you, but to those that you care for! This job is not meant to last forever, just long enough for the people that you know to love have dignity and respect beyond compare.
Last weekend I received some training that many people need, but that I thought was almost foolish. We learned how to act positively in the face of challenge. If I ever feel distracted, I always ask myself how I will feel (or could) if I hurt, was sick, tired and alone. Would I always be happy or feel grumbly like some of the seniors under my care do? My thought is that I would feel grumbly and lonely – just like some of my clients do. That is why I always try my best at all times – because it is my responsibility to do so since I realize that With Age Comes Respect.
I promise that as long as I continue on this journey of being a caregiver that I will do my best to uphold my goals until the bitter end with each client that I promise to serve. I believe that it is the right thing to do and that I owe my clients the best that I have to give!
