Need Hope? Look to the Caregivers
When the going gets tough, there are many things we can do to motivate ourselves to keep going. Having hope is one of those things. Hope is powerful — it can be the spark that inspires us to do the impossible. It can be the light that helps us carry on during times of darkness.
There's a common saying that in difficult times, look to the helpers. Because it is the helpers who will inspire hope and love in everyone around them. This is true of caregivers — caring for others is an intrinsically hopeful act of service.
It's just as our motto says, "We rise by lifting others."
In-home caregiving enables people to age or recover within the comfort of their own home. Caregivers work diligently to help people maintain their independence and live their best possible lives, even in the worst cases when it seems like all hope is lost.
A caregiver’s role in giving people hope can produce surprising results. Caregiver Roberta G. — a longtime caregiver at Alegre Home Care explains that sometimes the results she sees with her in-home care clients are nothing short of a miracle. Roberta had one client who could barely make it from her chair to her bed when Roberta first started working with her. Within one year, the client made a dramatic shift and was able to make it down the stairs. The client’s dementia symptoms even improved and she was able to have conversations with people and remember things she used to be unable to recall.
