Tell Us: In Social Settings, Do You Say, “I Care for…”
During our discussion, @ejourneys posed this question: You are at a cocktail party. Someone at the party approaches you and says, “Tell me about yourself.” Do you tell him or her you are a family caregiver?
So, I’d love to know your answer. (And, for the sake of the question, suspend the reality of your situation and assume you are able to attend a cocktail party while your caree happily stays at home with quality care. And, just for the heck of it, I also am able to attend this cocktail party with you. We’ll have fun.)
