Ladies and Gentlemen: Like most people, I became a caregiver because of the great demand. Soon I discovered the real world--that the world exists upon the kindness showed by others, and that this kindness keeps alive the souls of those needing care. What I like about being a caregiver is the instant removal of all false pretense. What we "do" is a "part" of who we are, but it does not completely define the person. Nor does the characteristic of what we "have". So, for those clients who cannot speak, cannot run, cannot wear fashionable clothes or drive around impetuously honking at other drivers, life actually begins. Personal achievements that I am proud of are my memories of the clients who could function the least, could hardly move and who could not talk, but were the most appreciative for my attentiveness to understand them. It reminds me of the story of the Good Samaritan, and further when the Good Lord asked the question, "Who are my mother and brothers and sisters? Who, then, was this person's neighbor: the one who showed kindness." Similar to products or services in any market, caregivers are to the aging population a group who recognize that aches and pains are not going to go away. What some call a disadvantage, or disability serve, in many ways, to be an advantage because these individuals begin to shift their focus and attention toward what is really important in life-- people and how they are treated.
