I am, and desire to be a homemaker for myself and others who desire living at home while having complications which prevent them from being able to take care of their home and provide comfort to themselves. I suppose this comes from the times my loved ones were not able to do thinks which made them comfortable in being home bound. My mother, due to R.A. was unable to write birthday cards, thank you notes, or make the LISTS that many of us need to keep obligations and appointments noted. She was a stickler about how her house was kept. She would say "you do not have to live in a mansion or a mobile home; but you must keep whatever you have the best you are able". She had little quirks about how the house and her personal things were kept. It wouldn't have made a lot of people care one way or the other; but it was important and comforting to her. That's what mattered. She was not a picky eater most of the time, but sometimes she wanted special fare, and prepared a certain way. Usually it was the "old time" way; and since it probably was the way I was raised on it was not "latin" to me. She liked "real" food. I have always been the one in the family to be the "caregiver' housekeeper" when something came up where this need presented itself. Actually, I am the only one in the family left to have this gift. The others have many other gifts, but I know Who and why we were given the gifts we have.
Because I give the care I would want to receive. Anyone could be a wonderful caregiver if they did this same thing. We would probably all want to have someone who cared about what made us "feel better" not just physically, but mentally; and cared about the things which bring comfort and joy; many of which have no relation to the medical field. These are the things you learn when you have taken care of your loved ones over the years.
