The Tough Part of Aging in Place

What it Means to Be a Caregiver

Often, becoming a caregiver creeps up on a person. It starts by someone asking you to do a small task for them and builds from there. The next thing you know you are running more errands, doing the shopping, preparing meals, and taking them to appointments. That’s how it started for us with my parents and my mother in-law. It was a sudden event for taking care of my father in-law. These sudden caregiver duties can be triggered by a sudden debilitating medical event such as a stroke, heart attack, cancer, etc.

Caregiving – A Lot to Grin and Bear

It does not matter how well prepared we try to be when it comes to being a caregiver for our parents. There will always be that "something new" to deal with. I don’t mean just the illnesses. It’s the housekeeping, lawn care, the leaking water faucet, the snow removal… You get the picture. I'm learning about acceptance.
