I have found that there are at least 3 types of clients that I frequently work with. They are;
- I need help because my children are too busy
- I can do most of it myself, but I might need help closer to the move
- I have no one to help me, I am all alone.
This last category is the one I feel badly for, because they usually need my help the most, and often cannot afford to pay for the service, or don’t know that there are people who can and will help.
Being the old maid, doesn’t necessarily mean an old lady that never found the love of her life. I think that anyone who is the last, surviving person of their family (male or female) can be classified as the old maid. It can also means; taking the last piece of cake, cookie, or candy just so you don’t have to wrap it up and put away just one piece. When you are the last of anything, it is sad.
The old people, without family are often forgotten about in today’s fast and frantic paced world. They tend to blend in, and because they are old, they are often thought to be strange and difficult to understand and deal with. Being alone, in the world is a scary, and difficult to manage.
If you know someone who falls in any of the above criteria please let them know that there are services available to help them manage their situations. Don’t let people fend for themselves somewhere there are people to help them.
