Fun is relevant to each individual

Today was the ‘Big Day’ that my client and I have been planning on for a matter of weeks. We went to an antique store (something very near and dear to my client’s heart) to shop for all things Christmas. All-in-all, today was a very successful day!

While all this fun can be appreciated, it can be a bit overwhelming, too. So much anticipation can create some irrelevant fears; some founded, some not. The best thing that any elderly caregiver can do when placed with the ‘Big Day’ responsibility is to make the most of the day.

You must try to keep calm and positive for those feelings seem to manifest themselves to others in your presence – this includes your clients! (It is also a great way to score other business as well!)

Sometimes the ‘fun’ that a client wants to have may not be ‘your’ thing, but a little time (and sometimes a lot of patience) will be just the way to show your clients that you believe that With Age Comes Respect. It is not hard, but it is rewarding, so have a little fun with your clients today! When you do, your clients will be so grateful that the fun will spread from person to person – and not stop anytime soon!
