Tell Us: What Does Help Give You?


Tell Us: What Does Help Give You?

I often read articles about how getting help during caregiving means we can do things like take a walk.

I've been giving thought to help during caregiving lately. For me, when my siblings help me with our parents, I can stay in business. With their help, I can travel for speaking engagements, which means I have a revenue stream. With their support, I can host a National Caregiving Conference, which means I create meaningful possibilities.

I do appreciate the chance to take a walk. It's the opportunity to stay in business that means the most to me.

What about for you?

When you have help, what do you get?

If you're still in need of help, what do you want the help to give you? What challenges do you encounter as you work hard to get help?

Receiving help with my husband’s care from my sons and paid care workers enables me to to get out of the house to run errands as well as giving me “me” time to continue with my activities that make me feel like me.
