Often, when I look back on my life, I think about the dumb things I’ve done. Ugh, I’ll think, that was so dumb!
Once in awhile, my memory will give me a break and dwell on those actions or decisions which were quite smart. Thinking of those smart moments in my life gives me hope that my future will include more smart decisions.
So, I’d love to know: What’s the smartest thing you’ve done as a family caregiver? Perhaps you switched your caree’s doctor and now you both have a resource and an advocate. Maybe you moved your caree into an assisted living facility at what you now can see was the right time. Or, perhaps you rearranged the house so that care can take place conveniently and efficiently.
What’s the smartest thing you’ve done as a family caregiver? Please share in our comments section, below.
