I Can’t Win.

For those of you who have not experienced the stresses of caregiving, or being the point-person for a loved one with dementia or other debilitating disease – please read the above-linked article.  It will give you a wee taste of:

a) the toll that caregiving takes on loved ones;

b) the toll of being a spouse with someone with dementia; and

c) the extreme frustration of trying to communicate with professionals while coordinating care for your loved one.

Please read this article – it will give you a healthy respect for your coworker, neighbor, family member – who is on duty 24/7 with caregiving tasks.  Whether the caregiver is performing these tasks long-distance, as was the case for me in relation to my father’s care, or performing them on-site, the task is monumental and deserves a great amount of respect and understanding.
