So, it is a New Year and with that I have more opportunities to shine. Besides catching up on the business end of things this weekend, I am also reaching out to help others by answering questions that they have about caregiving and looking into future opportunities.
This service that I provide, as I have stated many times before, is very important to me. That is why I do all the research I can and reach out to others that have questions that can help their friends and loved ones. This is no nine-to-five job, it is a life-changing experience!
I am trying to establish some goals for this year. The big one is to see if I can be of service to people in our area that previously received the Meals-On-Wheels supplemental meal program and who will no longer receive it because the good old state of Illinois has decided not to pay for this service.
I feel for the individuals that received the service mainly because for many of them, the two minute delivery was their only means of human contact in a day, but more than that, it may have been the only meal that they would eat throughout the day because either they cannot afford food or because they are too sick or decrepit to fix their own food anymore. If they live alone, this could mean a death sentence for either of those two reasons!
All I want to do is show people that Time To Care (TTC) is all about showing everyone out there that With Age Comes Respect. So, in answer to the question of what I am doing today with my day off, well, the answer is that there really is not day off!
