You Might Be a Caregiver If...

Disposable_nitrile_gloveOn Tuesday, Chris (@oscargal) asked our Facebook community to complete the following sentence: You might be a caregiver if...

I thought you'd enjoy reading some of the responses:

From @lillie, who cares for her mom:

You might be a caregiver if you have a baby monitor and no baby in the house!


You might be a caregiver if you wipe another adult's bottom more than you wipe your own.


You might be a caregiver if in your phone book all the D section belongs to doctors


In my case, you might be a caregiver if you ask the question "are you ready?" 50 times a day!


You might be a caregiver if you are the proud owner of 1, 2, or in my case, 3 bedside commodes!


From Richard (@kreisler), who cares for his mom and brother-in-law:

If you carry wipes and latex gloves in you purse, you might be a caregiver.


Chris (@oscargal), who cares for her husband:

If you own more latex gloves than winter gloves and you live in Canada, you might be a caregiver.


Trish (@trish), who cares for her brother and sometimes her husband and her mother-in-law:

You might be a caregiver if you time yourself putting on a caree's brief, trying for a personal best.


Gary (@gary), who cares for his mom:

You might be a caregiver if you refer to the odd, rare night at home to yourself after work, alone with a hot cup of coffee, a good book, and a little music, a "date"!


Laura (@roaringmouse), who cared for her husband:

You might be a caregiver if you find it fun racing the nurse to see who can put a TED stocking on faster!
