Dear friends and caregivers,
Please advise me as to what you would like to see happen with Adopt A Caregiver? How can I help? What can I do? I am looking for answers from you, the caregiver.
As for me, I’m trying to spread my words, plant the seeds for Adopt A Caregiver. I am speaking again to groups, and find they are so helpful, so talk to me as soon as you can.
In the meantime, know that I’m doing everything in my power to start communities thinking about Adopt A Caregiver programs. It’s so simple, everyone in a community (where you work, live, and play is a community) knows someone who is a caregiver. Please know these people would love to have you for a friend. Someone to talk to. Sometimes caregivers are so alone, so isolated, so lonely and depressed, yet their attitudes are wonderfully alive and vibrant. I wish they all would start to write their memoirs, or their loved ones memoirs. Think of the stories we can give our children and grandchildren. They only see us at the age we are now, not as we were at their age. Think about that for a moment.
Give the gift that lasts forever and costs nothing. Adopt A Caregiver, and tell them your friend Helene sent you.
Keep love and kisses in your life. Helene
