So, to end this mixed emotion week as a caregiver, I want to leave my clients with something to remember me by….a homemade carrot cake! I am hoping that this little something-something will help my clients to taste a bit of the love that goes into each bite; from my heart to theirs.
I believe that being a caregiver is one of life’s most important ‘jobs’ shall we say. It is right up there with being a mother and a wife (at least I got two out of the three right!). It is all about showing your elderly clients that With Age Comes Respect.
This small task is so easy for me to imagine – and I get to do something that I love to do and that is to create something yummy in my kitchen that I know will be enjoyed! I gain so much pleasure from doing just that!
In addition, I know that what my clients are eating may not be the healthiest choice, but it is so much healthier than buying something pre-packaged from a store. That is just another reason that I love this position that I have put myself in. I get to ensure stability, safety and health from my own perspective; friendship is just a bonus all around!
