We Break for Fall: What Will You Change?

autumn_waterfallWe are creatures of comfort. And, sometimes we get so comfortable in a schedule or a routine that we don’t realize it no longer works for us.

So, today, we wonder: What will you change in your schedule to make your day a little easier?

It could be that you change how often you bathe your caree (from three days each week to two days) or when your caree has the last cup of water before bedtime or when you give yourself a moment to breathe during the day.

I look forward to hearing what you’ll change because your change will spark ideas for others. We’ll choose a daily winner from those who post an answer; today’s winner will receive a CareGiving.com annual membership and an autographed copy of my book, The Caregiving Years, Six Stages to a Meaningful Journey. Congrats to Pegi, who won yesterday’s Starbucks gift card.

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.

    Set limits around time with my caree so that I can spend some time at working on getting a new living arrangement.
