A Caregiving Comfort: Anchor

Once, you think, you were calm, organized, on time.You almost don’t recognize who you’ve become: Disheveled, scattered and angry.

A Caregiving Comfort: Normal

People will see your crisis and ask, “What do you need?” They may wonder about your response, which may be, “I don’t know.”

A Caregiving Comfort: Snooze

We deserve ten minutes to take a break. The challenge is to not give our time away because our fear tempts us to believe we’re not strong enough to get up.

A Caregiving Comfort: Power

You can feel powerless to your caree’s pain and suffering. No matter what you do and how much you try, it can feel like you both live with a pain that hurts the body, the soul and the heart.

We believe caregiving stress is an overlooked epidemic in our communities. Please take a few moments to tell us about your stress from caring for those in your family with a chronic illness, injury or disease in our simple stress survey.

We also want to know about your caregiving pain points.

We’ll Be Okay: Reason No. 85

We can accept life’s invitations because we are worthy of receiving them. This moment is the perfect moment to receive.

We’ll Be Okay: Reason No. 86

We can be okay because we can fail. When we fail, we see our courage and give ourselves a chance to get better.
