 The Fear Factor

(Page 2 of 2)

Learning about the illness or disease our loved one faces is vitally important, but so is learning all you can about your role as caregiver.  As we start a new year, resolve to spend time with other caregivers in support groups and at local events; or, if that is not possible, on appropriate online discussion boards.  Ask questions until you get the answers you seek. Google and read about everything you can. Call the local Area Agency on Aging, Alzheimer’s Association, cancer organizations or whatever group is most involved with your loved one’s situation and ask questions. Never stop asking questions until you get the answers you seek.

Fearless caregiving is a process, not a destination. Once you are on your way, you will recognize how to use fear as a motivator, as opposed to a roadblock, to help find the answers and solutions you need as you care for your loved one.
