Care Giving is A Vocation

There is no way to teach one to become a care giver, without mentioning and understanding what a vocation is. As a home care giver, you are an extension of the goodness in you. You understand the deeper language and meaning of a calling and caring. You have the basic foundation of spirituality by living a life of principle and philosophy of the  Golden Rule: “To do unto others what you want others to do unto you, when you are in the same position.” This golden rule will give you the wisdom and judgement on how you will care for others. From it, will flow kindness, compassion, consideration, and respect, that is already in you as inherent to human nature.

The Caregiver

There is a rich executive looking for a company for her dying sick mother. While she is still in the hospital, they are looking for her companion to recover in the Hamptons. The interview included, “do you have any experience with homecare giving?” I answered, my husband is a doctor. I was warned by the son that the old woman is cranky and hard to please. When she saw me, she is in her good mood and greeted me, “How are you my friend?” With that, the son knew they are ready for me. They took me to the Hamptons. They are extremely rich, she has a nurse, housekeeper and driver; and my job is to give her company. Our  conversation lasted for x years/ coming from two cultures, we had a lot to talk about. I took her to the best places she want, fine dining in restaurants, shopping and joy riding that I felt like a native in the hometown of the rich and famous. After some time, her daughter-in-law who is not fond of her, noticed that she looks happy and contented, definitely death is not in the picture. My companionship worked for all our favors, as blessed by God. ~MDS
