I have worked at Midwest CareCenter for over ten years and have had the privilege of working with many wonderful people and in three different departments.
I first worked in HomeCare Assistants, helping with the scheduling of caregivers, and then transferred to our Home Health division in the Evanston office. I later became a Hospice Administrative Assistant and now work in the Glenview office.
In the book The Four Agreements, an international best seller by don Miguel Ruiz, what is meant by the word agreement? And what are these four agreements?
Agreements are beliefs that we have learned and created in our lives that tell us how life works, how we should run our lives, and how to think about ourselves and each other.
As a psychotherapist for almost 40 years, the power of care, respect, and responsibility still amazes me as I witness the results in peoples' lives, relationships, and work ― including and especially in my own. During these four decades, I have been studying the world's great wisdom traditions ― philosophy, religion, spirituality, and psychology. Each of these traditions, despite their coming from disparate locations around the world and at different times in history and in the voices of numerous teachers, convey to us the same lesson over and over ― to live with love and respect for all of life.
It doesn't seem possible that I have been with Midwest CareCenter for nearly 10 years. The service area, team members, pharmacies, DME companies and some staff have changed over the years, but one thing has remained constant—our commitment as nursing professionals to stay educated and to provide quality, compassionate care to our patients, families and communities.
