Although there are so many things in life that we cannot possibly prepare for, what we can we should – especially when it comes to elderly caregiving. If we do set our sights on the week ahead, it can only help as the monkey wrench comes flying in to disturb the general order of all things entitled preparation. That is why I do at least some work seven days a week.
I like to ensure that I do as much as I possibly can so that I will be ready for the next happenstance to occur. Elders get sick. They need to go to the doctor a lot. Sometimes they simply hurt too bad or don’t feel like going out in the public eye.
We will all get there. We will all feel the throes of old age eventually – if we are fortunate enough to make it to old age that is.
Preparation is the name of the game. It is all in effort to show my clients that With Age Comes Respect. I have promised them my best and I do what I can to deliver. Sometimes the extra effort pays off and sometimes fate intervenes. We will simply have to see what this week has to offer!
