There are many gifts that a caregiver can give straight from the heart. Time is a big one, patience another, but love is the best gift of all.
As an elderly caregiver, I make it my responsibility to notice everything that goes on with my clients. I try to read their thoughts and apply the best knowledge possible. I promise them and myself that I will do everything possible to help them in any and in every way that I possibly can!
For example, as a sidebar, I try to do everything that I can to recognize all holidays – even the small holidays like this upcoming Valentine’s Day! I am recognizing each of my current clients with a little something something for each of them!
Although it may not be much, I figure each of my clients will know just how important each of them is to me! I want them to know that no matter what they are in my heart and in my soul; they are family per say! By recognizing this they should realize once and always that With Age Comes Respect.
Even if I only give each of them a card, at least they will know that I love them. I do love them you know! I really do!
