Our next three words for our Community Caregiving Journal are:

Weary
Fog
Lift

You can write about each separately in three separate posts. You can write about all three in one post. You can write sentences using all three words. Or, if you prefer, you can share your prose by leaving a comment, below. In essence, you can write about the words in the way that feels right for you.

Here’s how our Community Caregiving Journal work: Every Wednesday, I’ll post three new words for you to write about. Don’t worry about keeping up every week if that seems too difficult. Just write about any of the words whenever you can. Members of Caregiving.com can contribute by writing a blog post. (When you write posts for our Community Caregiving Journey, select “Community Caregiving Journal” as the category.) And, visitors to Caregiving.com can contribute by writing in our comments section, below.

About Denise

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.

They mean well, but their lives are busy and occupy their days. And really, Mom’s care is specialized and involved, and I can’t just be relieved and let someone else take over. She is paralyzed from strokes, and can do absolutely nothing for herself. She has no control of her body. Just to change her diaper I must roll and hold, and prop… Read more »
