When I once owned a home care agency, one of my caregivers was having major burnout from an elderly person she was caring for. The elderly person was going having extreme behavioral issues common with having advanced dementia.
The caregiver called in and I happened to pick up the phone, after talking to her I decided to go to the home, and on the way I brought her ice cream. We sat outside on the porch for 5-10 minutes and just ate ice cream on a hot day.
That caregiver stayed on with the elderly person as a caregiver for almost 3 years!
Sometimes all you need is ice cream 🙂
Happy NATIONAL CREATIVE ICE CREAM FLAVORS DAY!
