Journals For Caregivers

Caregivers have asked me several times how can I find time to journal? Or to write a memoir about taking care of someone you love who is slipping away from you.

I do have one suggestion, and it can work for all kinds of writing.

Take a manilla envelope and write small phrases or a bit of a memory on a slip of paper and put it away in the envelope. When you have the time, and you can look at a slip from the envelope, you will remember that memory.

Remember to date everything you write, no matter what it is.

My book Behind The Mask was not written that way. I found the time to journal. But all my other wring stems from bits and pieces that I jotted down to remember a certain event.

I’m speaking to a group tonight, come back tomorrow to see how it went. It’s exciting gatting my word out about adopt a caregiver.

Keep love and kisses in your life. Helene
