FROM THE EDITOR'S PEN /
Last week, Terry got lucky.
emailed me to ask
about concerns that she and the members of her support group
have about new rules enacted by the group’s facilitator.
Well, Terry certainly came to the right place.
I believe that she actually set a record for responses,
both in amount and variety of opinions.
If you want to know something about caregiving it pays to ask
the experts – your fellow caregivers.
Your answers for Terry:
Find another organization to sponsor your caregiver support
group, if that's possible…Continued
Unilateral decisions are never good…Continued
The unilateral decisions outlined and implemented by the
Facilitator are understandable...Continued
thought is how can one eliminate a gender from a group…Continued
Terry, I'm a woman
who takes care of the sick and elderly…Continued
I am just finishing a third year where
the non-profit I work for has provided a Caregiver Support
This is not advice for Terry, only an idea...Continued
Gary, with regard to the caregiver group
that is referred to and meets where the rules have changed…Continued
#1, first, the members of this group will make changes according
to the needs of the Group…Continued
With these responses, you have reinforced something I believe
with all my heart: that this is one of the most giving support
groups in which I have ever taken part.
I am truly proud to be able to do my small part in
sharing your words of wisdom with one another.
