Just a reminder to make sure you wrap up a few extra pressies this xmas for the carers, nurses and helpers that look after our loved ones. I see first hand exactly what goes on in the nursing homes and hospitals and these people deserve to be acknowledged and thanked.
They never know what they are going to cop when they turn up to work and they learn to ‘roll with the punches’ whilst they take home very modest monetary reward.
Caring is a really difficult career both mentally and physically and to take on many people with dementia each day is amazing.
A small gift (or a handshake/hug) for other residents who may not have any family support is probably not a bad idea either. (not food – as this can be sometimes against nursing home policy)
