Why I Decided to obtain the SRES Designation & What is means to me.
Since I was child, I was fascinated by people’s history and the stories they told me about their lives and the experiences they had. And of course, the older the people were, the more they could tell me. When I was a teenager, I started to go grocery shopping for elderly people or helped them in other ways. In my adult life, I was a volunteer at the Seniors Club at Malteser Hilfsdienst-this is similar to the American Red Cross. I learned a lot about the needs of people as they age, and also about their wishes for future free of responsibility from their home and its upkeep.
Unfortunately, early in my live, my parents became ill. My father got cancer in his late 50s. My mother had issues with her heart. And my brother and I, we were in the middle of everything, working full-time and trying to manage everything between the hospitals, washing clothes and getting used to all the documents needed to get help from the different insurances, retirements offices and all the bureaucracy it comes with.
My father was more and more in need of daily assistance in his early 60s. And my mother could not take care of him on herself. Heartbroken, we decided to bring my father to assisted living, first in daily care, then we found a place in our neighborhood he was able to stay; this was awesome because we and all his friends were close. My mother went into independent living in the same facility. It was a lot of work, clear out their condominium, decide what they can bring to the new living facility, sell and donate furniture, get rid of all things my parents called home.
It was a hard time, and thinking back I honestly don´t now how we both managed everything. But this was only possible because my brother and I both lived close to our parents, and we were able to take care of them and to organize everything.
Why Do I Tell This Story?
Because I really know about the thoughts-the fear of people aging and the feelings of adult children, especially if they cannot be close and give the help my brother and I could offer.
I love to help and support seniors, to help them make another important step in their life.
