Is Caregiving a Job or a Relationship?
And this is kind of the ultimate question that I settled on. To our caregivers, is caregiving a job or is it a relationship?
That seems like an easy question doesn’t it? But how you answer that question has different implications as to how you might serve as a caregiver.
So I’m going to just do a little unofficial poll right now in this room. I’m going to ask you that question. To our caregivers what do you think? Do our caregivers think that caregiving is a job or is it a relationship? Raise your hand if you think that they would say it’s a relationship. Okay, raise your hand if you think they would say it’s a job? Seems to be about evenly split here today.
