Caregiving is all about the people involved and building real, meaningful relationships. For Vivienne* and her family, this was extremely important. Vivienne had experienced brain damage and also had difficulty walking.
She and her daughters decided it would be best for caregivers to come in twice each week to help her out, and she wanted some consistency in who the caregivers were. She soon developed a close relationship with one of the caregivers, Betty*. Vivienne and Betty loved spending time together, and Betty would often do Vivienne’s hair for her during their visits.
When Vivienne’s leg broke and she had to be hospitalized for some time, her daughters requested Betty to visit her at the hospital — just to keep Vivienne company. Betty immediately agreed, and Vivienne loved being able to see her!
“Betty’s visits mean so much to my mum,” her daughter said. This is true for so many of our clients — our caregivers give the same care and concern as any devoted daughter would!
