Another inspirational story from a local caregiver.....
My mother has been given a one day a week schedule for me to take her out to do her errands, go to the hair salon, and go out for lunch. One day every week to 10 days.
Today I got an URGENT call that I have to take her to the bank. I can do her banking online.. but I guess she's bored. As a family caregiver I realized that you have to look past the schedules you originally made and be flexible, she looked after me my whole life now its mine turn to return the favour & yes we had a blast that afternoon she even ordered ice cream with 2 spoons for dessert at lunch!
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.
