Fright brings up so many emotions

I was frightened for my clients this evening. When I arrived, I was met with full out emotion; tears of fright falling down the woman’s face and hesitation and tautness creasing the face of her husband. This is hard to witness; hard to recover and show clients that With Age Comes Respect when they are this afraid.

The cause of their fright was none other than the fantastic individuals of ISIS. Their handiwork destroyed the lives of over 150 individuals this afternoon with bombings, shootings and hostage situations. They must really be proud of what they are doing to all people in this world – especially the elderly that fear for the lives of their family members.

This is certainly true with my clients as their grandson is in Special Forces in the U.S. Army. They are so sad that he could have to face these killers with his own life.

When fear is great like this, it can really do bad things to people with other illnesses – be it physical, mental or emotional. When you add age on top of the equation, it can be a recipe for disaster. Now my work will be even tougher as I will have to help them through their pain.

I will do my best as a caregiver and their friend. I will be there for them – no matter what! It’s funny what 24 hours can do, right?
