What does it feel like to be a caregiver?
It's kind of like coming to a road, looking both ways--and then getting hit by a plane!
For more than thirty years, I've been a caregiver for my wife through a medical nightmare that continues to bring new challenges--often daily. As she experienced surgery #80 in January 2018, this journey shows no signs of slowing down. Along the way, I've had ample time to make virtually every mistake one can make as a caregiver.
Through this journey and through all the mistakes, I've also gained hard-won wisdom and experienced teachable lessons on the challenges, predicaments, and heartache of the caregiver. My passion through my books and my syndicated radio program for caregivers is to provide fellow caregivers a well-lit path towards safety where they can catch their breath and take a knee if required. From there, I offer easy ways to help caregivers better navigate the difficult and often dangerous path of caring for a loved one with an impairment.
Healthy Caregivers Make BETTER Caregivers.
