TEN THINGS TO KNOW IF YOU ARE A CAREGIVER
- More than 95 million Americans are just a phone call away from being a caregiver to an older loved one.
- To say that caring for an older loved one is simple is like saying that all it takes is gas for your car to run.
- Your parents’ doctor can only be as good as the questions you ask.
- The best answers to your caregiving questions are not likely to be what your search engine ranks at the top of the list.
- You cannot change your past with your parents, but you can make both your futures brighter.
- Every 67 seconds, someone in America is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease.
- Your loved one with dementia probably feels more alone than you do.
- Technology cannot replace “touch,” but it can make it more efficient and effective.
- Caregiver stress may be inevitable, but “burnout” does not have to happen.
- As a caregiver you can only take care of another if you also are caring for yourself.
