This business is more than providing elders with care

In order to be the best elderly caregiver, I do a lot of research in hopes of being the best. I also want to have the business end of things in tip top shape. In order to meet that goal, I am going to try to teach my son how to help me with keeping the books. This way, I will provide the care, do the research, do some of the business end and give him the opportunity to do the rest.
The more I can teach him, the more he will be able to carry on and show elders that With Age Comes Respect. If only more people could realize the importance of this simple task, the better the world could become!
But, in reality, there are simply a hand full of individuals that are cut out to do elderly care – and that includes their family members. I will never forget viewing this one particular training video that has a woman admitting to abusing her mother because she had Dementia; the ‘caretaker’ got sick and tired of the repetitive demands her mother placed on her, so she would hit her, kick her, slap her or whatever else came to mind at the time.
Not only was the woman wrong on so many levels, but she now takes care of others in the same predicament as her mother was in before she died. How awful is that?
That is why I am fussy about who I choose to work with, work for and employ. It they cannot look in the mirror and see me looking back at them, they should really rethink the fact that they think that they need to do elderly care in the first place.
