Martin Luther King, Jr and a Legacy of Love

So many years ago this man left an impact.  He continues to do so to this day.  Yes, it is a holiday and a day off for many, but it is so much more than that.

I remember watching Martin Luther King, Jr.’s captivating speeches on a black and white TV.  There are so many wise quotes from this man.  How does one pick a favorite?  I can’t, but here’s a couple that especially touched me.  Read More→

Tips to Help Caregivers Get Through the Holidays

Let’s face it. Caregiving can be a full-time and demanding job.  Add to that the demands and expectations of the holidays and you have even more stress than usual for caregivers.

How can caregivers prepare for and get through the holidays while still caring for their loved one and themselves?

Caregivers must remind themselves of their dual-purpose at this time in their lives:

  1. To care for their loved one
  2. To care for themselves

Everything else must be prioritized. One thing is for sure.  You won’t have time to do all the things you used to do for the holidays, so pick and choose things that will add some joy to you and your loved one’s lives.  Accept that this year the holidays may be different, determine what holiday activities or memories are most important to you.  Do not over-commit yourself to holiday activities that you probably won’t be able to support.  Pick and choose wisely!

This is so important for caregivers to remember. Sometimes we get so busy with the holidays and the pressure and stress, that we need to remind ourselves what is really most important. We just need to be there for our loved ones. If you have to let a few things go, so be it. It will not be the end of the world. Don’t be afraid to ask others for help!

So, what can you do to take the pressure off, but still have as nice of a holiday as possible for your loved one and yourself?   Read More→

Excuse me…sorry to interrupt you, but I just had to let you know…there’s still time…to take advantage of Cyber Monday savings for the caregivers on your gift list and the last chance to get in on the fundraiser for Sparta Area Cancer Support (SACS). I’ve not really mentioned much about my “other” caregiver book. It is very different from the Cocoon of Love for Cancer Caregivers. It also hasn’t been on sale before.
