Motivation for the Caregiver….Quote #13

“Be the reason someone smiles. Be the reason someone feels loved and believes in the goodness in people.”

Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart

I'm just your average thirty-something woman, living in Small Town, USA. I graduated college with a B.S. Degree in Chemistry in 2008. While pursuing my passion for Chemistry, my life took an unexpected turn and I became my grandmother's 24-hour caregiver....for 11 years. During this time, I married and became a very independent woman. The Piney Chemist combines my love of Chemistry with eventful life experiences. It's Chemistry, caregiving, and me!

  1. I have done this at the nursing home quite a bit. I loved making the weakest and most ignored residents feel loved for a bit. After my ordeal on B hall with the medications and illnesses that failed to get treated until I was moved to a different hall, I was exhausted. Truth be told, I am still tired. I am no longer capable of loving my special residents the way I used to do. May I will feel better when I get to this living assisted place, Roseblossom. Gainesville, Georgia. I’m nervous, but I’m excited! I’m so glad I have you to talk to about these things! You’re such a good friend ♥️♥️♥️


    1. HELLO!! I’m so happy to hear from you!! Where have you been!? You have such a kind heart! I’m sure the other residents appreciate your love and kindness. Sometimes a simple hello is all that’s needed! You’re moving!? That’s fantastic!! Do you have high expectations for the new assisted living facility!? I can understand your nervousness…new places and faces!! I can also understand your excitement! I’m also glad we’re able to talk! Will you keep me updated on your move!? Thank you for looking in!!
