Have you ever woken up in the morning, stretched out the sleepiness and said to yourself “Today I want to be a caregiver.” That is the equivalent of saying today I want to be a nurse, counselor, administrator, carpenter, plumber, cook, housekeeper, personal assistant and many other roles with a moment’s notice. Jeff Foxworthy and and Peter Rosenberger bring humor to the overwhelming tasks of caregiving in this youtube video.
There is no What to Expect When You’re Expecting how to book to prepare you for caregiving. We caregivers receive a baptism by fire into this important role. So how do you prepare yourself and your trusted Circle of Care for this journey?
Parenting is a highly anticipated event. Our social media, photo albums and phones are filled with pictures of the milestones of life. Yet we shy from including the caregiving journey as part of this life cycle celebration. It’s time to change this. I encourage everyone of you to post a picture of who you care at on Twitter @REUNIONCare and @CreditforCaring or Facebook.com/REUNIONCare or Facebook.com/CreditforCaring. Tell us about your caregiving journey.
We look forward to hearing your stories and seeing your photos.
