Adopt A Caregiver

Adopt A Caregiver

I would like you to read Behind The Mask, and know what it feels like to be a caregiver. Then I would like you to

Adopt A Caregiver

Email or phone, develop a personal relationship with someone whose friends have deserted her or him. Let them know they are not alone.

Alzheimer’s Disease is not contagious! The caregiver is also a victim.

Please think about this, and as I gather more information I will pass it along.

It’s not difficult to send someone an email once a week or so, and I guarantee they would be so grateful to receive this mail from someone who cares enough to sit down and write.

Thank you for listening, and come back soon for my list of lists that I promised to write about.

Until next time, keep love and kisses in your life. Helene

  1. Hey, I am a caregiver–just realized it

    My father-in-law has eight childern, seven in Minnesota and my wife with me here in Las Vegas. When his wife died three years ago he moved in with two of his daughters at different times and in each case was asked to leave. The other five seldom even talk to him, three of them not since their mother died.

    My wife, Laurie who has a debilitating chronic condition and is herself on disability invited him to Las Vegas, against my better judgment. He came, I adjusted (finally) and am beginning to reap the rewards inherent in freeling offering care to someone who has no place to go. At age 82 he is reasonably self sufficient, and I am prepared extend my caregiving when his health begins to fail.

    I was behind the mask in a different sense than your book, Helene, but reading it gave me a greater appreciation of life.

    Jeanne and I and a group of singers gave our concert. Fun and success.

    See you soon,

    Roger
