I am arriving early today with my clients’ dinner and then have to take my lady to not just one but two doctors – and of course for a bit of therapeutic shopping! It will be a nice segue for the both of us in between our more important stops.
I know that today will be a very big challenge both mentally and physically for her. I just have to be her love and support; constantly displaying to her that I believe that With Age Comes Respect.
That is what I intend to do. It is what I crave to do for all of my clients; to serve them the best way that I know how! If I could not run my practice this way, then I should not be in the business at all!
What many caregivers tend to forget is the fact that when a client has so much to do in one day’s time, it becomes very overwhelming all around for them. They get tired easy which affects their mental state of mind and can overall show in their emotional stance.
You really have to treat your clients with kid gloves and actually treat them somewhat like a young child. Remember, these people are used to sitting around a lot and napping whenever they feel like doing so. Even though it is much easier for us to make several appointments back-to-back, it can end up being just too much for the elderly.
Remember that and have the patience you need when you need to do so!
