Holiday Wishes
 

From the first day we considered starting a magazine for caregivers way back in ’94, I went out to find like-minded people who could help us reach out to our fellow caregivers. Since then I have found many such “Good Folks”, at first in my own backyard and later across the nation who not only helped us create the magazine and website, but have been a real support system through my family’s caregiving. This is why I cringe when a caregiver tells me that he or she can find no support and no one understands what he or she are going through. I think so strongly about reaching out for support that I wrote two separate principles in the Fearless Caregiver Manifesto about reaching out for support.

“I will fearlessly seek out other caregivers or care organizations and join an appropriate support group; I realize that there is strength in numbers and will not isolate myself from those who are also caring for their loved ones.” …And… “I will fearlessly develop a personal support system of friends and family and remember that others also love my loved one and are willing to help if I let them know what they can do to support my caregiving.”

My wish for you is that you are surrounded by all the support, love and compassion you need as you celebrate the upcoming holiday season. 

Happy Easter and Passover to you and your loved ones.
