My vision is that every community 55 and older who have caregiver support groups, would have an Adopt A Caregiver program.
It would be wonderful if people in the community would contact the support group leader and say, “I hear someone needs a friend. I’d like to Adopt A Caregiver.”
Just think how easy and awesome this vision is.
There is nothing to join, nothing to pay, and no commitment, except to yourself.
This works in your community, your church, your synagogue, anywhere there are caregivers. Everyone knows a caregiver, but do you know how they feel? Behind The Mask is my secret journal, and when you read it, you are standing in a caregivers shoes. This is every new caregivers story. You will stand in their shoes and know what they are going through. All the things they never talk about..
For those in the later stages of Alzheimer’s Disease I recommend Lauren Kessler’s inspiring book, Living In The Land Of Alzheimer’s, a true story.
Word of mouth is potent, this is how my words about Adopt A Caregiver are getting out to the public. Please help someone who can’t help themselves.
Keep love and kisses in your life. Helene
