Thrown into being a Caregiver for Elders and feel unprepared?
By Dr Jeanette Gallagher
What does a caregiver mean to you? What tasks define the help that is given? Who is responsible for the process of helping others? Are you taking care of your parents? Perhaps you want to start helping others and not sure how much you should get involved? Is caregiving a code that is billable and everyone just taking what help they can get? Are relatives living to an older age and becoming part of the homelife with many generations living under one roof? Elaine Sanchez, author of Letters from Madelyn which is a collection of letters her mother wrote to her about the process of taking care of her father. The letters are very clear and raw in the issues we face as we take care of someone else and the toll it may take on the caregiver. Elaine is a speaker and co-founder of CaregiverHelp.com which has an extensive database of information addressing challenges you may be facing and also resources to find other sources of help.
