Through out my line of work, I had the honor to take care of a WWII veteran. We established a great relationship from the beginning. I visited him every day of the week for several years where we talked about his younger years living in Brooklyn and his service during the war. I was so fortunate to have met him. As a kid, I grew up watching war movies and I was fascinated with B-17 and their crews. Ant It happened that my client was a bombardier on a B-17. He shared multiple stories from his flying missions that captivated my attention on a daily basis. I used to ask him many questions, he shared some pictures and memorabilia he kept throughout the years. Also his wife of more than 60 years was a very pleasant lady.
They both encouraged me to one day start my own business providing care for seniors. They used to tell me that besides the washing and dressing part, I gave them a personal interaction and connection that they had not had with others aides they had in the past. I thanked them every day for their complements and encouragement.
Finally, his health declined and had reached a point of no return. Our last conversation was a good bye one. I kissed him on his forehead and thanked them for allowing me to be part of his life. He replied to me that he was the thankful one for having someone very kind next to him for his last years of life. He told me “always be kind to people”.
Since then, I always practice kindness and our company was created out of kindness to make our seniors lifes better so they can age in place with dignity and grace.
