The Ed Asner Interview (Page 3 of 3)

An Interview with Ed Asner

EA:  Yes, and sometimes they are going to resist.  Hey, I would resist.  My kids found a way to tell me, “You are going to get off your butt and you are going to go to this place with me.”  And stewing on the idea a couple times a week can make a big difference.  Finally, it becomes a habit and they start asking you, “Aren’t you coming by to pick me up?” 

GB:  What would you consider the one most important piece of advice you can share with a family caregiver?

EA:  I have a friend.  For years, he and his wife took care of an old Hungarian seamstress and the stories they got from her, the romances, and affairs, and the mighty she had known made their caregiving a very cheap price to pay.  So, mine that mother lode of history and you are bound to get rewarded.
