In my nursing days I was objectively aware that frustration and being treated with contempt was/is an issue for the elderly and disabled (for patients; residents; clients)
I have always treated people with respect regardless of disability; race; age; sex; sexual preference; religion etc.
A couple examples:
One young lady who suffered with Freidriech Ataxia when she changed service providers said that she would not change unless they hired me.
I thought “I am not that good!” and then I met her other carers who were so patronising.
When I worked in a major hospital I was told off for spoiling patient when all I was doing was treating them like people.
I am now old, disabled and overweight so am subjectively aware of frustration and being treated with contempt.
BUT with age comes wisdom and I am determined to be healthier and slimmer using affirmations: diet and doing what exercises that am able to do.
Plus I am grateful for where I live and for all the trees and birds in my garden and for friends and family that help and support me.
