 Respite Wisdom 2012

Last week, in honor of the start of our twelth annual Summer of Respite for Family Caregivers campaign, I asked the following question: When did you last take time for yourself and what did you do?

The following responses only confirm what I always say: one of the most important tools we have as family caregivers is the well asked question and the best wisdom comes from your fellow family caregivers.


My husband is wheelchair and hospital bed bound...continued


My husband and I take care of our adult very disabled son...continued


I am taking my husband living with dementia to a group at our church specifically for dementia patients...continued


Hi Gary, Thank you so much for all you do...continued


I was able to take two hours this morning to play tennis...continued


I tend to use things way past their usability. I decided to redo the bathroom...continued 


Went to see Elton John...continued


A few weeks ago, I went to my home town of Topanga...continued


My father is in an assisted-living memory care...continued


 

And one that I think all family caregivers can relate to:
 
“Earlier today, I went to the bathroom.”
 
 
Well, it’s a step in the right direction…
