November is National Caregiver Month. We know first hand what being a caregiver means.
The ambivalence, the anger, the anxiety, the crankiness, the boredom, the depression and sadness, the fear, the frustration, the grief, the impatience, the loneliness, the tiredness, the resentment all contrasted with the deep love, the joy, the shared moments of humor, the knowledge that you have made a difference, the time together with your loved one, the sense of giving back, personal growth, satisfaction that your loved one is well cared for, and even the development of compassion.
Some days the negatives far out way the positive. But then one positive diminishes the negative in one fell swoop.
We want to join the nation in honoring our caregivers and offer you hope! We are here to share your burden in whatever way we can and we offer these few suggestions to you.
