This Is an Opportunity to Help People
As our family members age, new challenges present themselves daily. I experienced this firsthand when my mother fell ill. My sister and I were faced with the reality that my mom was being discharged from the rehabilitation facility in two days and she was going to need help. We were aware of assisted living facilities; however, my mom wanted to live at home. I was unaware in-home care services existed. Fortunately, we did discover a home health care company. But, we weren’t pleased with the care my mom was receiving from that home health care company. That motivated me immerse myself into the home care field. I knew I could provide a superior and loving environment for others. I was extremely fortunate to find ComForCare whose philosophies and commitment in providing compassionate care was the same as mine.
I do not want other families to be unaware they have options. We strive to provide our clients with the best options for them and knowledgeable advice as they navigate this new arena. Sometimes, we recommend options that do not include us. Our primary concern is for the family in need. It is incredibly satisfying to be able to take the weight of decision-making off the family, and we take great pride in doing that.
It’s the Simple Things
The most rewarding experiences I have with clients are rooted in day-to-day activities. I’ve taken walks with clients. I’ve driven them to the store to get a few items. When I spend time with clients I am captivated by the stories of their full and memorable lives. I truly feel so fortunate they are willing to open up and allow me to listen to them recount events or memories special to them. Most of these events or moments are usually small, seemingly innocuous. But, recounting them typically makes us laugh and creates a wonderful experience for both of us, especially me.
