We got my father-in-law an electric lift chair with a controller. From the kitchen, I heard,"what the? Hey, what the heck? Hey!" I came in and found the chair in standing position, and him in a pile on the floor. I said, "Dad, what happened?" He said, pointing the chair controller at the TV, "I don't know, I was just trying to change the channel!"
It goes to show, that all through my caregiving journey my dad and I laughed at everything and made light of a very hard situation. Keep smiling caregivers!
Hello! As a caregiver, mother and social service worker I have learned many life lessons through hands on experience. My dream for you is to make your journey through caregiving a cherished one.
