I am going to the knitting club this morning, one of my favorite ways to relax.
This weekend I am starting my new book adopt a caregiver. This will contain my stories when I was a caregiver, as well as stories told to me as I go around speaking to groups. I am constantly amazed at how everyone is wiling to open up to me and tell me their story. I think that is because they have never talked about it to anyone. Caregivers always keep it inside, not wanting to burden anyone.
My idea now is to have caregiver groups contact me, or at least the facilitator, the leader of the group. I have people asking me who they can adopt. I’m so happy ot hear they are willing to spend some time to adopt a caregiver. This is now my mission in life. Wanting to help the caregivers, who are so admirable in what they do. Most people do not have a clue how hard and lonely this job is.
Please comment, ask questions, your input is important.
Behind the Mask is my secret journal, now published so everyone can read how a new caregiver feels. My thoughts and emotions are laid bare. This is the framework for adopt a caregiver.
Thank you for reading and
Keep love and kisses in your life. Helene
