Gary Barg - Editor-in-chief 

Respite Wisdom 2010

Ten years ago, I interviewed Dana Reeve for a Today’s Caregiver magazine cover interview. Dana, unfortunately, passed a few years later; but at the time of the interview, she was caring for her husband, Christopher Reeve, who became a quadriplegic after being thrown from his horse in 1995.  She was open, gracious, and actually quite prophetic during our hour-long interview. I have referred to what she told me many times over the past decade. One of her comments came to mind when I received the email from Peggy below, and that was Dana’s concept of learning to take “mental bubble-baths.” In other words, getting away for respite breaks does not necessarily mean having to go anywhere; respite can and should be woven into your daily schedule...continued

Caregiver Tips for Traveling

Traveling long distances with a person in the early stage of dementia may still be quite enjoyable. As dementia advances, however, traveling becomes unpredictable as the person becomes more confusing. Plan ahead for a trip by gathering important documents: insurance cards, passports, your physician's phone number.  ...continued



I am not sure where to turn now.  My husband has a few health problems and is on disability now.  We also have a 9 month old baby girl. I left my job in March because he can no longer be on his own, he can still do limited things, house work, yard work but has to have someone with him.  He has seizures, and asthma.  At first it was not that bad but we have gone through our savings and the disability he gets is not enough to cover all the bills.   Is there anything out there that would help us so I can stay home with him and take care of him? I just don't know what else to do now.
