I am happily married to an awesome man. We have one teenage son whom we're proud of.
Although I don't have any elderly care certificate, I have always wanted to work with them. I've always had a heart for the elderly.
When I worked as a Beauty Therapist, I use to have a few elderly clients. They were my favourite to work with. I use to love listening to their story's. I built such a good relationship with one of my clients to the point where she use to invite me to her home to do treatment on her. Most of our time together was talking and laughing. She was also interested in listening about my family.
There were some elderly ladies that had arthritis. I use to massage their hands, they loved it and it use to relieve them of there pain.
When I worked with youth, I use to take them to their doctors appointments or Hospital and any other appointments. Shopping with them or taking them out on excursions. Some of them had medication that had to be administered.
These things I'm sure would be similar with the elderly except on a different level.
I have high respect for the elderly and I have plenty of time and patience for them.
