Caregivers – this message is for you!

No Matter What, I Simply Cannot Get Sick!.

Fellow blogger, Don, talks about his caregiving journey with his wife in which he swore off getting sick because – quite frankly – he couldn’t afford to be sick when his caregiving duties required that he be healthy and available 24/7.

One could argue that just being worried about getting sick might make one sick, but fortunately, that was not the case for Don.  Having read many of his articles, it appears that he knew what was required of him as a caregiver – the same thing that is required of all of you who are still on your caregiving journey: assemble a team, spread out the duties, and seek emotional and physical support in whichever form you need.

First and foremost, please read Don’s article attached above.  After you have done so, I hope the three articles below will also prove beneficial towards providing direction on how one might assure a successful medical and mental health caregiving journey.  When you take care of yourself, you’ll be better equipped to take care of your loved one.
