Why we do what we do...

"Dear Linda, 
You are one of the best clinicians ever!!! Thanks for our home visit. It  changed our thinking and opened up possibilities. Thank you for your kind  attention and concentration just on Bill's (and our) needs. 
Bill got in and out of the car easily today.  Just your observations of him and  suggestions jogged his mind out of the set way he'd been doing that. 
Bill said just after you left that he was "sorry" he aimed a pun at you.   I said you could take it. 
People with PD (PwPD) have such a need for what's called   "witnessed significance", to recognized for who they are,  honored, and respected as anyone would need to be seen. 
The other element is "affirming acceptance."  PwPD  (as we all do) need to be accepted and affirmed. 
Thank you for being you!!"
