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
