I want to say thank you to all who work in the long term care industry! I admire everyone that takes the time and shows the love and compassion to the one of the most deserving populations in this world! Again, thanks to all!!!

You're welcome Connie. And you know what? I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world...except for RETIREMENT when the time comes. You know, I've often wondered that if I ever have to be placed in a nursing home, will I receive the care that I've given to my patients? Will they go the extra mile to get me a blanket, or a glass of water when I ask them to? Will they find the time to just sit and talk with me when I need them to? Or will they even change me when I need to be changed. It's a scarey thought when you think about it. I just hope and pray that I don't really have to go that far in life where I have to depend on someone else for everything just like a baby. No one wants that, and that's why I try to make their last few years of life as comfortable as possible because basically that's the way I would want to be treated...with dignity and respect.
