Sometimes you Need to Go to Their World
This is one of my favorite posting...why? Because I'm one of them. I know exactly who they are and what they need. Everyday is a struggle for me. I'm still working full time to residential care facility for the elderly to support my children. I have two teens who depends on me. I"m not ready to lose my job so I have to prove to my employer that I'm still worthwhile to the company. So I give my best in my job. I belong to the residents. Sixteen years of Parkinsons is no joke. I know the agony and misery of being sick. So I sing with them. We play cards, we do exercise, arts and crafts, I really spend my time with them. Some of them are really out of reality, but still they deserve to be loved. It certainly gives a happy feeling when you see them smiling. They know that they are being love when you hold their hands, when you comb their hair, pat their shoulders, or give the a little massage.
They can not communicate but they can express their feelings thru their senses.
Go to their world to share your feeling with them. Share your happiness, your blessings and most of all...YOUR LOVE.
