During the holiday season something to be thankful for is the health of loved ones. Recently the caregiver of a gentleman I was working with invited me to have a cup of her home made yogurt. To my surprise I didn’t know it was even possible to make yogurt from scratch and yes it was much better than the store bought version.
The caregiver simply wanted to express her gratitude to all the people who assisted her husband’s transition back home after a prolonged hospital stay. Although her husband was returning to a familiar environment, he was physically weaker and I worked with him to improve his strength and safety within the home.
The gratitude of this caregiver allowed me to refocus my attention to the thankfulness I have for my family this time of year. Have a peaceful week.
I agree absolutely…When co-workers asked what I wanted for Christmas, I told them I have it already. My wife (recent amputee) is alive and home with me instead of someplace else. That is the greatest gift !— Kirk Irthum / December 24th, 2011 at 7:39 am
It is a great gift to have a loved one back home. Thanks Kirk for sharing your story.— Jeffrey Jue, PT / December 29th, 2011 at 9:34 am
