Home Care Services in Cedar Grove, NJ: Doing Your Best

If your elderly parents are receiving home care services, you have probably heard someone tell you to “do your best”. This phrase is used for people of all ages, but when it comes to home care services, it can be challenging to understand exactly what this means.

Home Care Services in Cedar Grove, NJUsually people will give the directions “do your best” when they do not know if the person receiving the directions is capable of getting the job done. Since most adult children who are new in-home care service providers have absolutely no idea what they are doing, “do your best” is one of the safest and most encouraging things that can be said. For many new caregivers, the fact that their elderly loved ones were fed and that their living space was clean is the perfect definition of doing your best. For others, doing their best might simply mean that they did not yell and scream at anyone.

For many adults who are homebound, seeing their in home health care providers walk through the door is the most exciting part of each day. So, in many cases, just arriving at your loved one’s home is doing your best and since you have already done your best work, you cannot fail at anything else; as long as you do the jobs you need to get done.

Doing your best does not mean that you have to work so hard that you cannot do much else. It really means that you do what you can and that you are personally satisfied with the work you accomplished. If you want to have a measure of success, you can define what your ‘best’ will look like each day. You might want to try to smile more each day, so you count your smiles one day. Then, to do your ‘best’ you try to smile the same amount or a few times more each day. However, if situations permit you from smiling (like some kind of bad news), then you still do your best to get your work done.

It is important for home care services providers to know that the only way to do your best is to focus on what you can do and what you can control. Since you cannot control other people, you should not judge your best work on what other people do. You cannot wait for people to tell you that you have done your best; you just have to do it. Some days the best work will be outstanding and you might actually receive some praise. On other days, your best work might just be survival. Appreciating the variety of standards that your best can be will make your time providing home care services more enjoyable.
