15. Caregivers Strength Respect

Respect

  • Admiration
  • Deference
  • Reverence

As a Caregiver, a strength you may reveal – is Respect in the face of the unknown.

Do remember it is also important for you to use respect for you and your needs as a Caregiver.

Respect is often resting in reality

The Caregiver Strength of Respect

Respect is incredible because it will help you to continue, even when you are not getting, the answers you need, to move forward in any direction.

When you are caring and supporting a Loved One,

You may even do superhuman acts, of moving a car off a loved one or

Like getting up in the middle of the night, when you have gotten no sleep at all.

Day after day, month after month, year after year, helping in every way possible.

Respect is often shown in the face of fear

Caregiver Story of Respect

I have always respected my Loved One.

Although, I saw in a nurse,

A new understanding of respect, which I had never seen before.

It was strange for me to see as a caregiver, because so often,

It seems to be only you who cares for your Loved One.

Even your Doctor & Professional staff addresses you and not your Loved One.

So to see a Nurse, talk with my Loved One who was deaf in one ear and a hearing aid in the other ear, who sometimes found it hard to communicate easily with people.

This nurse put at ease in just a few moments.

Respect, in a heartbeat.

Remember you have the admiration, the deference, reverence  to see this through!

Is Respect a strength of yours?- What else are your Strengths?
