Today on Your Caregiving Journey, Bette joined us to talk about her caregiving days. (You can listen to Bette’s previous appearances here and here. You can listen to today’s show via the player at the bottom of the post.)
During our previous shows, Bette spoke about the guilt she feels when she leaves her mother. Today, she spoke about how she leaves—and leaves without guilt. Overcoming her guilt took time and it involved a process, but she did it. You’ll hear her confidence in her decision to take time for herself during our discussion.
How do you overcome your guilt? Share your best beating-the-guilt-trip tips in our comments section.
(And, speaking of trips! I hope you will join Bette and I in Chicago November 6 and 7 for our First Annual Caregiving Conference. Reduced hotel rates are available until October 6. You can register for the conference here. Look for our agenda on Monday. And, help us raise $1,500 to offset the costs of the conference for five family caregivers. Buy a copy of Take Comfort, Reflections of Hope for Caregivers, your go-to book to feel good. Details and a 10% coupon are here.)
