Things to try to lighten the mood

As you appear each day in your client’s life, whether they are dying or not (as each and every day we each draw one day nearer to death), your best bet to be the most fabulous caregiver ever is to show your client that With Age Comes Respect by creating a positive mood – for them as well as for you. Positivity lightens the spirit and keeps the mood light and cheery. Who would not want to be around someone like you?
Think of things that your client enjoys – or has enjoyed in the past. Whether it be puzzles, baking, paper dolls, crossword puzzles, movies or whatever, it is important that you engage your clients in these activities as often and for as long as you possibly can so that they realize the depth of your devotion to them.
The more a caregiver does, the more pain (physical, emotional, and mental) is lifted from an aging person that may be in pain or simply hate the way that they are now compared to how they lived their life in the past. When you are good at what you do, the negative seems to dissipate – even if it is only for a short bit of time.
Your clients will want you around and you will enjoy your role in their life. Keep this in mind as you go out into the world each day and try to change the lives of those you care for!
