How It Is Now

Now, all these years later, I still have the same emotions, only it’s different. Now these emotions are for all caregivers. I imagine them going through all that I went through, and I want to help them past the rough spots.

Imagine yourself in the position of caregiver. Put yourself in their shoes; it doesn’t feel good, does it?  No, it doesn’t.

I’ve ripped off my mask, but they can’t. The only way to help them is to get them to talk, to get it out, to vent, and we can offer support, encourage them to journal, or draw or do something they love to do.

Adopt A Caregiver. I want that to be on everyone’s list. It certainly is the gift that lasts forever, and costs nothing. Just keep your ears open, find out who is a caregiver in your own community, school, church, synagogue, Mah Jongg club, Poker Club, and then offer to be their friend.

No, they won’t open up right away, but when they start to trust that you aren’t going to judge them, they might. That would help wipe away some of their tears. Don’t you want to help do that?

I do!

Adopt A Caregiver, and tell them your friend Helene sent you.

I am so grateful and feel so blessed that the Alzheimer’s Disease diagnosis no longer hangs over our heads. Now it’s time to give back. This is my new journey. Please help. Just Adopt A Caregiver.

Keep love and kisses in your life. Helene
