Weather can be an issue

While I enjoy dark rainy weather because for some reason it helps me to concentrate and work harder, elder folk have added aches and pains and sundowning increases about 10-fold; sometimes more. Many older people like to stay in bed because the dark, dreary weather gets them feeling down in the dumps. Me, on the other hand, find it easier to concentrate. I write better, clean better, and just have an overall feeling of success rate flow through my entire being.
The way that I can help my clients on a day like today is to just let them be themselves and be there to support them when they have a whim or fancy. Elder attitudes go right hand-in-hand with their physical pain. The more pain a person is in, the worse their mental being is. That is why it is so very important for me to step up on these days and support my clients by showing them that With Age Comes Respect.
I find it very easy to hold a hand, give a positive word, or whatever other miniscule thing that a senior needs to feel better. All of this is easy compared to the pain and agony that many of them experience when the weather does not cooperate with them.
I love what I do and promise to be present with my clients through thick and thin and all types of weather conditions!
