Suppose you go to a meeting, dinner, church, synagogue, Mah Jongg game, book club, anything where the same people congregate together for the afternoon or the evening.

Suppose you hear that Mrs. Jones is now a new caregiver, her husband had a heart attack, stroke, was diagnosed with Cancer, or Alzheimer’s Disease.

Suppose another person in the group also knows Mrs. Jones, and says she is a nice lady, or she likes to read, or her family is on the other coast.

You could Adopt A Caregiver, give the gift that last forever and costs nothing. Do you have any idea how much this email would mean to Mrs. Jones?

If you can’t stand in her shoes, read my book, Behind The Mask and know the thoughts and emotions that go through a new caregivers mind.

Tell Mrs. Jones that you live in her community and that you would like to be her friend. Encourage this friendship, encourage her to vent to write in a journal , to talk to you. Tell Mrs. Jones you will not judge her, since you can’t stand in her shoes. Just be yourself.

Suppose this were to happen to you? Wouldn’t you like someone to adopt you?

Just suppose, then give something back.

Keep love and kisses in your life. Helene

Help Each Other And Give Something Back

To all those who help others, to all those who give back, I hope and pray you will always be there to help others, and to keep giving back. I applaud all of you!

Wouldn’t it be a wonderful place on earth if we all did that? One by one by one we can all do it. I told you that word of mouth is potent. It is. I’m starting to get help myself, with my writing, and my blog.

Adopt A Caregiver is still in it’s infancy. But it is growing, people like the message. And all of you are helping me plant the seed and it is spreading.

Today we finished signing the papers for Adopt A Caregiver, Inc. Maybe soon we will get the approval for the trade mark for Adopt A Caregiver from the U.S. Patent Office. it would be nice to have by the end of the year.

And God willing, if I’m feeling better, I’m back on the right track. Speaking to others about my project, supporting communities, speaking out on my blog and spreading my word.

Go ahead, Adopt A Caregiver, tell them Helene sent you.

Keep love and kisses in your life. Helene

Happy Birthday To Me

Hard to write since I have stitches in one finger and two fingers are bound together, but just wanted to touch base.

I hope everyone has a good holiday and that you think about giving back and that one person can make a difference, with a little bit of help.

My personal adopt a caregiver has grown to four, It is very rewarding for me to receive emails back telling me how much they like my adopt a caregiver program.

Please write and tell me what your thoughts are regarding my program. Remember there is nothing to join, no money to send, no comittment except to yourself. Try it and see how good it makes you feel then let me know about your experience.

Keep love and kisses in your life, Helene

I am the birthday girl today.

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
