This morning on Your Caregiving Journey, two family caregivers joined me to share their insights in response to this question: What do you know now that you wish you knew then? You can listen to our show via the player below.
Gretchen Herrman, a member of one of my online support groups when she cared for mom until her mom’s death in 2004, and Kim Atchley, who cared for her parents, shared what caregiving was like for them during our discussion. They shared the best thing they did, what the waiting game was like, and managing life after caregiving. (You’ll remember Kim for one of our forgiveness shows; you can listen to that show here.)
I’d love to know your answer to the question I posed to Gretchen and Kim. What do you know now that you wish you knew when caregiving started? Please share your thoughts and insights in our comments section, below.
