Values

http://www.dreamstime.com/royalty-free-stock-images-happy-afro-child-image7889749We believe in the connectedness of life. That all life is precious and created equal. As such, we respect all beings and want to give voice to those less powerful or just a bit more quiet than the others. We want to give voice to our Older Adults and our Children.

We revel in the joys and experience of those who have been on earth longer than us, who have seen and experienced more than we can sometimes even imagine. We believe their experience lends itself to wisdom that we all can learn from, even if that wisdom may be cloudy from age or disease.

We also revel in the joys and innocence that comes from those who are experiencing life with fresh new eyes and innocents hearts. We believe our children, who need guidance and gentle boundaries, also have something to teach us. That being jaded through time, we perhaps have lost a wonderful perspective of life that all things are possible.

The life of the caregiver can be difficult at times. Much energy is spent on caring for other family’s loved one during odd shifts while missing our own loved ones. Yet, we gain a powerful satisfaction from knowing that our care makes a difference. That as we care, we offer a connection, a friendship that gives back to us and makes us feel good about our place in the world. We are needed and the care we provide really makes a difference in the world.
