Take a moment to get your coffee or tea…I am so glad you are here. 😊
I hope you will take time to tell us your story. As you read pages from other authors you will understand how important it is for caregivers to share their experiences.
A caregiver’s life is not easy, but we are better prepared to cope and HOPE when we find insight through the emotional life stories of those who have gone before.
As you read and learn what might be ahead for a caregiver, remember these words were written to reduce apprehensions, to let you know that there are others ‘out there’ to support you. Our stories can diminish uneasiness and misunderstandings that cause stigma associated with those who care for loved ones as well as a disease that mystifies.
Together, let’s turn any fears of being a caregiver into courage and confidence.
Please, at any point, let it be known when you need support.
IF YOU SUSPECT MEMORY LOSS:
1. Contact your medical professionals to address your concerns.
2. After diagnosis, contact the Alzheimer Society near you.
3. Find a support group –
Life will be so much happier and healthier
when support is part of your life.
If you, or someone you know, would like to share a unique story …new or already written, related to the role in a caregiver’s life, please contact me, securely and privately, through this link…and convey your interest. 💜
Each day do something that makes others smile and your heart sing! ~jas
Leave a note 😊 at the end of any page if you are so inspired or moved…💖 Thank you!
