Skool Daze

(Page 2 of 2)

Talk to that caregiver sitting next to you in the doctor’s waiting room. Tell them one thing that helps you get through the day and ask what helps them get through the day. I think you will be surprised at what you learn; but more important, you will be surprised at what you teach. I am always astounded by the wisdom shared.

From the lady in New Haven a few years ago who shared the secret of getting her mom to accept home care, to the young man in Nashville who learned from his fellow attendees how to get his mom to stop driving and to the caregiver at the recent Boca Raton conference who spoke of one of my favorite tools in our caregiving toolkit – a pocket tape recorder

And never miss an opportunity to share a laugh with your fellow caregivers. Your family will think your caregiving humor a little strange, but the family caregiver sitting in the emergency waiting room will be a great audience. I promise.

Class is in session.


And Happy Rosh Hashanah.
