Happy Saturday!

Donna Webb joined us today on Table Talk; you can listen to our discussion via the player below.

Toward the end of our discussion, I asked Donna, who’s mom died August 16: Knowing what you know now, what would tell the Donna you were three years ago?

Her answer: Be tenacious in finding help.

So, today be tenacious in finding help and accepting happiness in your day. Tell us how you’ll be happy. And, tell us about your Halloween plans.

About Denise Brown

I began working with family caregivers in 1990 and launched CareGiving.com in 1996 to help and support them. Through my blog, I share words of comfort and offer coping strategies and tips. I also write opinion pieces about recent research, community programs and media coverage of caregiving issues. I've written several caregiving books, including "The Caregiving Years, Six Stages to a Meaningful Journey," "Take Comfort, Reflections of Hope for Caregivers" and "After Caregiving Ends, A Guide to Beginning Again." You can purchase my books and schedule a coaching call with me in our store.

    I enjoyed the show very much. Donna, thank you for the nudge about finding help. We have 2 ladies that we have used, from a Senior Home Care Co., for about 2 years. Recently, it has become very apparent that my mother can no longer stay alone for more than an hour or so. My team members list needs to grow! I hate the idea of finding, indoctrinating, and sharing our home with additional help, which all begin as strangers. I know spontaneous outings are dimming, but I think with added help, one or two Saturdays a month may be able to turn into a family time away from the house. More adjustments needed, but through “nudges” like these, I know they are possible. :)

    Today was a fun day! Rees and Marah were in costume and able to walk in the Halloween parade here. Marah did several dances along the way! I think she wants to sleep in her costume for trick or treating tomorrow night.(: I’ll post a picture–if she wears her costume to sleep in, a bigger bed is needed!
