Gratitude is, in itself, one of the most powerful forces that we have to work with. The problem is that in our modern, fast paced world, too often we don’t stop to appreciate the things that other people do for us, for our loved ones, or for those in need. If you have an elderly loved one who might require senior care soon, who relies on it, or who has relied on it, take a moment to think about how far a simple ‘thank you’ can go.
The power in gratitude.
If you were brought up with manners as a child, then you know that it’s polite to say ‘please’ and ‘thank you.’ When you reach adulthood, head off to college or join the workforce, too many times we tend to leave those simple things in the past. However, that doesn’t mean that they are no longer important.
Saying ‘thank you’ to an employee who has been working tirelessly to get a report done recognizes that person’s efforts. While the employer, manager, or simply ‘boss’ might believe that the ‘gratitude’ that an employee receives should be found in the paycheck that they get at the end of the week, there is a lot more to it than simply saying thank you.
When you thank someone for their effort, whether they are getting paid for that service or not, it highlights the fact that you recognize what they are doing. You are acknowledging their effort and that can have a positive and powerful impact on them.
Think about the last time that someone thanked you for the service or work that you provided for them. It should have made an impact on you. It should have signaled to you that they recognized the effort that you put forth.
If you’re like most people, it would have put an extra bounce in your step; it would have encouraged you to do more to make a difference. When you’re at work and your efforts are noted, it usually will encourage you to work even harder, because you know that people are paying attention.
When you’re talking about senior care services, a simple thank you can have a lasting impact on the senior care provider. That simply acknowledgement can inspire them to do more and to continue to do whatever they can to help improve the life and conditions of the patient in their care.
It only takes a few moments to say thank you, so thank a senior care provider today.
For all of your senior care needs in Turnersville, NJ and the surrounding areas call and talk to us at Home to Stay Healthcare Solutions (856) 321-1500.
Home to Stay Senior Care Solutions is owned and operated by the Dubler and Skole Families and was started because of experiences they had with their own Families. In one situation Mom was living alone and had a fall. It was not until this fall that the family realized they were unprepared.
When it was time for their Mom to come home, she needed companion and personal care to assist her and prevent another accident. Like most people in this situation, they were confused and did not know where to go for help. It was this life-changing experience that lead to starting a home care company that is focused on enabling those who wish to stay at home and age in place.
