To My Good Friends, The Caregivers

I hope you will visit my new website, www.adoptacaregiver.org and I hope you will comments on my blog and tell me your favorite sites to visit. I’m always curious as to what you are thinking, if you have time to browse on the internet, if you have someone in your life to lean on in these hard times for you.

People call, they do, and they ask, “How’s the patient?” Do the ask how you are? You, the caregiver, is just as affected as the patient. I hope you get some consideration from your doctor and your family and friends.

I’m trying to get everyone to  Adopt A Caregiver. I know how important it is to have a friend, someone who doesn’t judge, just listens.

So in your community people, reach out and Adopt A Caregiver. Dont’t know how a caregiver feels, read my book, my secret journal, that no one saw until I published it. Behind The Mask by Helene Moore. It’s available on my website, signed and mailed immediately.

Give the gift that lasts forever and costs nothing. Adopt A Caregiver, and tell them your friend Helene Moore sent you.

Keep love and kisses in your life. Helene

Dear Caregiver

I hope you already know about my book, Behind The Mask, and that it prompted me to start an Adopt A Caregiver journey. I propose that neighbors in the community find out if there is a caregiver who lives near them, and that they contact his/her with an email. To be a friend, to listen, to let you, the caregiver, vent and to keep in touch with you, no matter what else is going on in your life.

Is there anything you, the caregiver, would like to add. What would you advise me to tell my blogging audience? Help me to help you.

Visit my www.adoptacaregiver.org website, read it, and contact me with advice on how to help you.

Keep love and kisses in your life. Helene Moore

It's A Girl

We are going to be great grandparents, baby is due 11/29/09

Found out today. It’s a girl! Exciting news. I knew we moved back here at the right time. Now we can’t wait. It’s been 20 years since there has been a baby in the family. Yes, my youngest grandchild is 20……

I have to start knitting.

Tomorrow we go to our new doctor for physicals. Hopefully, all will be well.

Talk to you tomorrow.

Keep love and kisses in your life. Helene

The Birthday Girl

This birthday woman had a great day. Brunch with the family and everyone came and we had a good time talking and eating.

Now I’m as old as my husband, until August 18th. 78 years young. Our bodies may be falling apart, but we ae young at heart and still doing the things we love. That’s important, at any age.

I’ve pulled out some of my writing, and it will be slow going, but I’m sticking to it this time. I don’t have too much time to waste any more.

I will still make time to support caregivers. My www.adoptacaregiver.org is up and running. I’m starting to speak to people and make some contacts.

I encourage caregivers to vent, on paper, write out their fears, anger, whatever is bothering them. It’s so carthartic. It’s a healing process unlike any other.

Give the gift that lasts forever and costs nothing. Look in your own community and find a caregiver to adopt. The rewards are many.

Keep love and kisses in your life. Helene
