Survival of the Caregiver
Sharing personal experience and words of reassurance, the author provides a treasury of ABC self-help words that give encouragement and support to the caregiver.
“In any event, the caregiver has, whether suddenly or slowly, had his or her life altered profoundly. It is devastating from the aspect that the caregiver, in all probability, is a healthy, active, out-going and alert person who is required to be confined with someone who is ill, slowed-down or immobile, depressed and/or confused. Since the caregiver is first of all a human being, he or she has strengths and weaknesses too. Therefore, it is important to recognize and know one’s own limits. Learning how to pace oneself is a key consideration when trying to survive the varied and constant duties involved in caring for someone with a catastrophic illness. Taking care of yourself physically, mentally, and emotionally is a must.”
