Sometimes clients are more like friends

When the chips are down, sometimes clients have the wherewithal to be your best friends. They want the very best for you because you give the best of yourself to them.
I experienced that type of love and devotion tonight when I arrived at my clients’ home and told them about my challenging day. I was invited in to sit and talk; hold hands and feel love and compassion. It was a great experience and one that I will cherish for the rest of my days.
When a moment like this occurs in a caretaker’s life, they should realize that they are in the right business so to say. Not only do they have clients, but those clients love them and want to be there for their caregiver as much as they want their caregiver there for them.
I cherish all of the friendship that I receive from my clients. I love them dearly.
While I try to always display the fact that I believe that With Age Comes Respect, my clients are showing me that they respect me as well. What a great feeling!
I am proud to be a caregiver of the elderly and I am happy to call each and every client my friend. Thank you for today. Thank you for tomorrow. Thank you for being there for me, too!
