Today is the day we celebrate FAMILIES around the globe. What does the word family means? According to Wikipedia “In human context, a family (from Latin: familia) is a group of people affiliated by consanguinity, affinity, or co-residence. In most societies it is the principal institution for the socialization of children.”
Think about “An institution for the socialization of children”. How important is this? Children are our future. As a company, we hear how families struggle with the care of their children and aging or disabled family members on a daily basis. Parents and adult children worry, struggling to locate a loving and caring person, and to insure their loved ones safety. They know the importance of finding a competent and caring person to take care of their loved ones while they have to go to work.
Nannies and Senior Caregivers are often the most ideal solution! These special people specialize in the care, protection and companionship of our loved ones in our family home. These caregiving professions are clearly important for our society and its development. These loving and caring individuals whom we trust our kids and elders are not only our employees; they become, with time, integrated members of our family.
Family is not only those whom we are related by consanguinity; family is also the people we care for and who care for us. We have received so many phone calls from clients letting their nanny or caregiver go because the family needs have changed and the service is no longer needed. There is so often genuine sadness on their part to be severing this relationship. Many families (those who can afford this option) will actually evolve their nanny’s job to that of a Household Manager just to keep her around.
HomeWork Solutions celebrates today (and everyday!) all of our client families and those considered as family. We want to say Thank You to all care providers for all you do and for the valuable support you add to our community and the success of our families around the US!
It is an important day at HomeWork Solutions; we celebrate today as the family we are ourselves!
