Caregiving In Context is one of the most challenging concepts to master.
Not every client is going to like you. Not every client is going to love you. Heidi Duty only accepts Veterans, since they are not just clients. They are Heroes.
The American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial in Washington, DC reminds us that our bad day should be placed in context. Compared to a combat wounded Veteran, our grave concern with a traffic jam, frustration with a rebellious teenage child, or a painful hang nail seem small.
In all duties today, remember to place your concerns in context with your Hero’s. It is not that your civilian concerns don’t matter, but they may be relieved when you place them in context with a Veteran disabled for Life.
You’re my Hero if you care enough to value a Veteran disabled for Life more than any other job.
