She was a poised, genteel lady, classy dresser, and petite with silver white hair and sophisticated taste. She opened the door to a brightly lit, Victorian-themed living room, with a pre-dominant blue color scheme. She greeted me warmly and motioned me to a chair. I sat down and looked around appreciatively at the antique décor, while appreciating the warm aroma of some vanilla flavored baking wafting from the kitchen. All this while I admired the beautiful china tea services of silver and more so by the beautifully designed, delicate china tea cups and saucers on display in the cabinet. Needless to say, afternoon tea with my friend was delightful…
Fast-forward 15 years ahead. I moved, studied, worked in various fields before circumstances bought me back to my tea partner and I was shocked by her appearance. The bright blue eyes had lost their liveliness, her beautiful living room was unkempt and missing most of her antique teacups and my heart broke. I realized what my friend needed was someone to care for her in a respectful and dignified manner. To her existing caregivers, it was just a job to them. But before I could make a difference, she passed away. To this day I regret not keeping in touch, and wished I could have been there to help
Through my grief, an idea was born… I knew there were caring individuals with the necessary skills to help individuals who need assistance, not just necessary medical care, but apply the human element in a dignified way.
