When I was doing maint/gardening 75% of my clients were elderly,And I kept doing about 6 of them after I started my landscaping business.I spoke one time to other green industry people about how they should take xtra time to relate to and keep a closer watch on their elderly clients, I got tromped on sooo bad told I was waisting time,called names,told I was being a shrink not a business person ect ect. But I always have and always will watch after my older clients 1st and formost,most are alone and ignored by family.They have enriched my life and knowlage of life so much.I have lost about 5 now from old age. Most people don't even bother to call and tell you.It's bad to pull up and the place is abandoned. The last one I even went so far as to redecorate her bdrm for her,set the front of her bed on blocks so she could sit up to breath better. Padded her very old metal boxspring mattress thick and replaced her bedding with pretty floral print comforted,bedskirt,pillow cases ,She told me a few times about a beutifull porciline doll she had won as a young child at a church raffel..she loved it but her Mom made her redonate it back to the church,and how she would never forget that.So I gave her my porcileine doll and put it on a stand by her bed.She got so happy and I think it gave her a little closure there.I hate dolls anyway. Her daughter was against me doing all these things , But I told her it was bettween me and her mom,she offered to pay me I said no.So she was a bit more happy and comfortable when she passed over.
