I owned own Rest Home here in Ontario and that was a stressful thing
'I did all the same work I expected my employess to do up to changing pads and depends .....
I believe that we are more in tune to our bodies and to our hearts as well ......
I believe also the link between us is EMPATHY and caring about
others always .........
I had to resign and sell my place as I got too sick with other diseases and disorders but I miss it daily
I did look after mom til she passed recently and now my dad ( step) had AD and I am his caregiver
I do not feel whole unless I am able to try and help someone
Thats me plain and simple ..........
Maree is spot on here I did do that we had weekly staff meetings and got all out on table what was wrong what was needed to be implemented new suggestions and how they were " coping" with all of the stressors especially the getting so close to patient and then they pass away
It worked out very well
Might be a good idea for you and your place ......
