When you empower yourself to tell people what you expect of them, you are in control of your needs and the needs of your loved one.
How else are people going to know what you want, how you want it delivered and when!
When you are the caregiver, you are the boss, the customer, the loved ones representative, and you cannot be vague or timid. You must have focused thought, and a calm demeanor, so your instructions are clear, firm and decisive.
As a responsible person and a caregiver, don’t be shy about giving orders or afraid you will ruffle a few feathers.
Because you matter, people are looking to you for direction and they truly want it, as a caregiver with purpose you have every right, yes, indeed obligation to give it.
By being empowered you can save yourself and others a lot of frustration when you simply take command and let others know what you expect!
