Weekends are great yet lonely

When you work with elderly individuals during the week, each and every moment is precious. You just never know when the last moment you spend with your clients will be the very last moment that you ever see them.

I am certainly not a worry wart, but I am a realist. I have been through the ringer before. I can recognize some of the warning signals.

I always do believe that I am over-imagining every single thing. I always hope that I am wrong because I truly love these people as much if not more than family….they are my new family in many cases.

You just never know if being present at the end of times is better or worse than not being present at the end of times. I suppose it depends on the client (as you do have your favorites – no matter how hard you try not to!).

What I have to keep in mind is the fact that With Age Comes Respect – each and every moment of each and every day. When I do that I can feel as lonely as I need to when I am separated by time from the people I choose to spend my life with.
