When dealing with the elderly, caregivers tend to have to deal with death and depression quite a bit. The depression can be due to many, many factors, one of which is that each day they draw nearer and nearer to death itself. The uncertainty of the actual event can lead to a whole bunch of depression, wouldn’t you think?
Right now my clients are all doing pretty well save for my youngest client. His life has been turned upside down and he has no idea just how in the world to deal with it all. And I can’t blame him even one little iota.
He is literally young and having to deal with health issues that many elders don’t even have to deal with. That would be devastating to say the least – for anyone!
My goal is to show him that I am there for him. Regardless of his age, my mantra of With Age Comes Respect still holds true. After all, he is young, but he is still my elder and I intend to give him the best of everything that I have.
Every person in this world deserves the best that life has to offer. I want to help this client beat his depression and face life head on – no matter what it throws at him.
