A letter from a Mother to her daughter

“My dear girl, the day you see I’m getting old, I ask you to please be patient, but most of all, try to understand what I’m going through. If when we talk, I repeat the same thing a thousand times, don’t interrupt to say: “You said the same thing a minute ago”… Just listen, please. Try to remember the times when you were little and I would read the same story night after night until you would fall asleep. When I don’t want to take a bath, don’t be mad and don’t embarrass me. Remember when I had to run after you making excuses and trying to get you to take a shower when you were just a girl? When you see how ignorant I am when it comes to new technology, give me the time to learn and don’t look at me that way… remember, honey, I patiently taught you how to do many things like eating appropriately, getting dressed, combing your hair and dealing with life’s issues every day… the day you see I’m getting old, I ask you to please be patient, but most of all, try to understand what I’m going through. If I occasionally lose track of what we’re talking about, give me the time to remember, and if I can’t, don’t be nervous, impatient or arrogant. Just know in your heart that the most important thing for me is to be with you. And when my old, tired legs don’t let me move as quickly as before, give me your hand the same way that I offered mine to you when you first walked. When those days come, don’t feel sad… just be with me, and understand me while I get to the end of my life with love. I’ll cherish and thank you for the gift of time and joy we shared. With a big smile and the huge love I’ve always had for you, I just want to say, I love you… my darling daughter.

Because Private Care Dorchester has self employed Private Carers on their platform, we could introduce you to a Carer who could look after your Mum, giving you the space and time to enjoy your Mum as she gets older.  We make ‘Mum and me: time possible because you will have a Carer to assist your Mum will all the tasks she wont be able to do.

All our Carers are Dorchester Carers but do venture to Weymouth to assist there as well.

If you think the times getting close when you Mum is going to need care and you still want to spend quality time with her, perhaps its time to register on our care platform.

If you need assistance in choosing the right Carer for your Mum, please do give us a call and we will always come and see you.




What an emotionally triggering piece of work.  Our thanks to the author!
