At some point in our lives, most of us will experience what it’s like to be a Caregiver… caring for a child or a family member who is either sick or is recovering from an accident or surgery, or helping with the care of someone with memory loss, aging or disabled. During such times, we begin to understand firsthand the physical demands and emotional strain related to the constant CARE of another.
It helps us gain valuable insight into the level of patience, compassion and dedication required from the special people who make the choice to commit their lives in service to those who are hurting and to those who need comfort, encouragement, creativity, and patience. Simply said, to those who need compassionate loving care 24/7.
The hours are long and exhausting. The work is hard and never-ending … and there is personal pain and sacrifice involved in CARING. This is where true Heroes are found. There is nothing to compare with the beauty and significance of this heart that gives so unselfishly in service to others.
If you are a CAREGIVER … Thank you for making a difference in the lives you touch.
“To make a difference is not a matter of accident…
People CHOOSE to make a difference.”~Maya Angelou

"We want to thank you for the loving special care you took of our mother, Diane. It was truly mom's home and you all became part of our family. Everything was home for her....from the beautiful rooms, large sunny windows all around, good food made with love, fun and personal activities from people who really loved our mom. We would highly recommend your facility to anyone. The staff from the director, to the doctor, to the nurse, to the caregivers and the maintenance man were all extremely helpful, caring, loving and professional. There are not enough words to say how much we appreciate all of you. Your exceptional care, kindness, and love were beyond anything we could have imagined. You were part of our family, and we will miss you." - Gail Sommers and Deborah Guse
