Letter: Depends on the patience of caregivers

Our caregivers deserve more pay

After visiting a friend in a care home, I realized caregivers deserve our admiration. They get slapped, hit, kicked and hair-pulled. Some patients take their clothes off and it can be a wrestling match to get their Depends on or off when necessary. I know caregivers get paid, but it can’t ever be enough.

Now I have double appreciation for the work caregivers do for their patients. Someday, it could be me.
