Believe As You Want … Let Others Choose Also

We must, in all good consciousness, stop trying to force people to believe what we believe.
If one’s beliefs are not harming others, then live and let live.
And let us please stop lumping all people who supposedly share the same belief(s) together. I have met many mean, miserable Christians who only believe in Jesus to get into heaven but are onerous and stingy and then I have seen others truly walk the talk in various levels. In fact, I am currently staying with one during my job search.
I have heard Muhammed Ali before and others since talk about Islam and its core element of peace, but then there are the terrorist groups who use, as Christians have, excerpts taken out of context to justify the opposite of peace and love.
If you don’t agree with someone, just respect the fact he or she is a life and has the right, as do you, to believe as they choose.
And, it will serve us all well, if all of us were more compassionate with each other for the trials and tribulations we go through and especially for those who have been targets for no good reason other than ignorance, fear, and low “Respect Levels” for life … theirs or others … because as I have learned those who harm, in the end, are actually causing more harm for themselves in the end because they have to live with the consequences of their actions.

Lobbying for “Person-Centred Care” for higher RESPECT LEVEL care in long-term (nursing) care homes

Friday, February 14, 2014, CTV’s W5 presented an 8 minute video presenting the “Person-Centred Care” model that the Sherbrooke Community Centre in Saskatoon, Manitoba, Canada uses in its daily care that is proving particularly successful in dealing with the violence resulting from Dementia patients’ acting out their fear and frustration from being forced to do what they don’t want to do or are frightened of doing. My comment posted on CTV’s website and in the next paragraph explains why I am lobbying for the “Person-Centred Care” for higher RESPECT LEVEL care in long-term (nursing) homes.

For the past two years, I’ve been dedicated to helping my Dad with his Alzheimer and Dementia care needs. Over medication and medication side effects first turned him into a drooling zombie, then almost killed him by disorienting him to the degree he got lost and was not reported missing at mealtime and would have died from hypothermia if a local family hadn’t found him on their property and then after the introduction of another drug in a new residence, he fell over 25 times because he could not rest even when exhausted because of the severe agitation and restlessness that prevented him from sitting in a wheelchair when he was tired. Several of his falls resulted in sutures and staples to his head plus he fell into and broke a window. Since he was moved to another home late October and was taken off that drug, he has only had a few falls and is even more lucid than before medication was prescribed to him. After seeing this video, I will be using it and Sherbrooke’s logical, practical and compassionate care model while I lobby for this personal care model, in partnership with my local MPP.

Because after all … shouldn’t all care be “person-centred care?”
