No Better Ending

By Sharon | Mar 21, 2019

Mom passed away peacefully, at home, on Tuesday, March 19, 2019 at 3:20 am while I was holding her hand. That was the end of a long, generous, loving life. She was 96 years old and could never understand how she outlived so many in her family. I am sure it was because she had…

A God Hard Cry – I Sure Needed It

By Bobbi Carducci | Mar 20, 2019

It had been brewing ever since my father-in-law’s heart attack on that Thanksgiving Day. The day started off well with the sound of laughter resulting from the retelling of favorite family stories and the scent of chocolate macadamia nut coffee and cinnamon toast filling the kitchen.

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.

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.

A Caregiving Comfort: Always

It seems like every day will be like this day. You’ll always be behind, tortured by worries, frazzled by the responsibilities. You’ll never get a break.

A Caregiving Comfort: Feast

You just can’t get enough which means you feel like you constantly work, never travel, and buy store-bought. While others celebrate, you endure.

A Caregiving Comfort: Loud

The worries and the stress are like loud noises that make concentrating an impossibility. How can read when your worries and stresses shout so loud at you?

We’ll Be Okay: Reason No. 92

When life is tough, we may feel like we must force a fix. What if we could be released and say, “I’m taking a break from the worries for just a few moments.”
