Caregivers: take a bow

Posted on Updated on

1st place ribbon - CopyApplause. Please, please, please read the attached mini-article written by a 30-something year old blogger who is taking care of her mother who has Alzheimer’s.

I’ve written about how important it is to do good things, say nice things, and appreciate the people around you. There’s a group of people out there that could really use some of those good vibes: family caregivers. You encounter them everywhere you go. You may not know they’re caregivers, but believe me, if you build them up, rather than tear them down, you will have done a very good thing.  You might be just the person she/he needs to get through a very trying day.

The next time you leave your house, set out to make someone’s day. Don’t rely on some other stranger to do it; it’s up to you.

    Thank you so much for sharing this story, Irene. I’m now following her blog too.

      I’m so glad you’re now following her. The 30-something year old caregiver perspective is a very worthwhile one, and unfortunately, will become a new normal for many Millennials.
