Gary Barg - Editor-in-chiefA Truly Appropriate
Anniversary Present

Just in time to celebrate the 13th anniversary of our Fearless Caregiver Manifesto, comes an opportunity to highlight two of the ten Manifesto’s principles in one fell swoop.

Last week, I met a family sitting together in mourning for the imminent passing of their matriarch, as well as in celebration of their love for her. 

Marisol is 89 years old and in her last days of living with ALS. She cannot speak anymore and utilizes a touch screen computer to share her thoughts with her family and professional caregivers. Yet, she still has a twinkling eye and an electric smile for all her visitors...

Sharing Wisdom

 

From Louise
Location: Georgia

Pray and read your Bible. Ask God to give you more patience. My husband had mental issues. I would quote 1 Corinthians 13:7,8: “Love endures all things; love never fails” with a smile. I learned to speak in a gentle, kind voice to him even when I thought he did not deserve it.  But it really was not him; it was his illness. He would look at me as if I had a problem when I quoted scriptures and he would calm down. Then I would ask, “What would Jesus do?” Pray; all will be better for you.

From Annette
Location: Ireland

Two tips really. Read the Bible first thing in the morning and last thing at night. This gives your tired mind some respite before you start the day and before you go to sleep. The second thing is, take breaks; either go for a walk or meet friends. You can only care for someone if you look after your own health.


The best ideas and solutions for taking care of  your  loved one often come from other caregivers. Please post your ideas and insights and we will share them with your fellow caregivers.
