From The Editor

Gary Barg - Editor-in-chief 

Someday, No Foolin’

(Dateline-Washington, DC) Today, in an astonishing show of breathtaking good sense, both houses of Congress voted to give the nearly 66 million family caregivers in the United States all the training, support, advice and funds they need as they care for our loved ones. The joint committee chairman stated, “Well, we all woke up and realized that we have families, too—mothers, fathers and children in need of our help. And that we have been placing an unjust annual burden of nearly 350 billion dollars on the shoulders of those we love. Besides, it is just the right thing to do.”...continued

Take care

Sharing Wisdom - Caregiver Tips


From hersheycandybar

 
My caregiver support group found that when dealing with the symptom of “sundowners” in the evening, to leave the area light on ONLY where you want the patient/family member to wander in. They will not enter an unlit area.


From Jane in Kansas City

After I put my husband to bed at night, I can sit in the living room with a good book. It relaxes me to get out of my story and into the book's story—even if it is a spy novel or thriller. Recently, I have re-discovered crocheting. The repetitive stitches keep my hands busy and my mind open to new things. And all my Christmas gifts are getting made!

 


The best ideas and solutions for taking care of  your  loved one often come from other caregivers.  Please post your ideas and insights and we will share them with your fellow caregivers.
