Caregiving for family or friends can be both rewarding and stretch you to the limits of your physical and emotional capabilities. It can include both sweet, cherished moments and painful, stress-filled ones. Sometimes you just need resources and help to make your way through this winding journey. That is why I developed a caregiving guide called Caregiving Tips And Tools.
Having had a grandmother and mother-in-law with Alzheimer’s, a mother with significant health challenges, and a father who is currently living with Parkinson’s, I have seen first hand the labor of love, and many times the overwhelm, that comes with caregiving. My own learned experiences and the blessing of knowing some “Angels on Earth” caregivers is the perspective that I bring to this guide.
