7 #CareGiving Joys and Challenges

#CareGiving caregiving joys and challenges avivopur.comBeing responsible for a person (or pet’s) well being is an honorable and sometimes under-appreciated endeavor.

Think of all the ways we appreciate those who care for us:

  • Servers in restaurants
  • Flight attendants
  • Pilots, bus drivers, and train engineers
  • Housekeepers in hotels
  • Teachers
  • Nurses and doctors and many others in hospitals and clinics

Some of these people we thank verbally. Others we thank with a tip. But many people go about day after day with a rare thank you or specific appreciation.

Parenting, pet care, and caring for our own parents as they get older falls into the category of CareGiving as well.

  • We hope to receive our thanks when our children grow up with good manners, good health, and love and cuddles before they become teenagers, and even sometimes after.
  • Our pets show their appreciation in much the same way by looking for our return or giving us pleasure just watching or touching them.
  • Helping our parents or other older adults with home, garden, or personal care can be touch and go with appreciation. Some people age with grace and thanks for the help, while others may resist and fight the perceived intrusion, even if the help really is necessary.
