The inspirational story of a caregiver’s love and dedication for an elderly couple was shared and South Africans fell in love with the lady named Maki.
Many people fear the thought of growing old and being helpless.
For many elderly South Africans, the only option is to be checked in at an old-age home.
However, some are fortunate enough to be blessed with a great caregiver.
The Positive relationships in SA group shared this touching story via their Facebook page on Thursday.
A lady by the name of Janika shared the post with the group and it shared the tale of her grandparents and their caregiver.
Janika shared her gratitude for the caregiver, named Maki, for the wonderful way she looked after them.
She praised God for sending Maki to them and explained how she literally did everything for the elderly couple – from washing and dressing them to keeping them safe and feeding their dog.
The elderly couple were short-tempered at times and fired her on numerous occassions, but Maki always forgave them as she felt a deep sense of responsibility towards them.
Briefly.co.za gathered the couple passed away in all probability.
Facebook users shared their admiration for the amazing caregiver as Maki received a host of compliments.
