Thanks Linda

My wife Linda started this blog last month and I want to let her know how proud I am of her, that she is sticking with it. She does ask me to contribute to it ,but I usually have an excuse rather than just starting. Looking over the work she has done, (and not just on this blog), I thank God for putting such a wonderful person in my life. Part of her motivation, I believe, is that she is thankful for the many people that have helped us over the years.
When you listen to the radio, watch tv, or read the paper it is easy to get discouraged, but life is good, just keep asking for help. People are listening. Look towards the long term. If you look back, you'll remember good times and many pleasant memories. Right now good experiences are right around the next corner. Look forward and you see a high school graduate, a gold metal at Special Olympics,  job interviews and a first paycheck. People will remember your child's name and their special traits. As our parents age and their health is not so good, we still have memories of their help when we were not so capable. This world seems to be going by too fast, it is our job to slow it down a notch. Take it easy on them and yourself as you get frustrated, both of you are doing the best you can for now.
I'm off to the hospital to visit my mom and do one or two errands. Thanks for reading this. Frank

4 Signs of Caregiving Stress Overload

ElderCarelink email posts 4 signs that should not be overlooked by you, the caregiver, or a close family member or friend. They report that even though the immediate caregiver may not be helping in direct care, the mind is never far from the needs of the older person, thinking about meals, falling, medications. Take the opinion of a family member or friend if they are telling you that you are stressed. Four signs: you skip your own physicals; you isolate yourself from others; you eat and/or drink too much for good health; you are short tempered with the elder, your spouse or your children. If any or all of these sound familiar, take a break no matter how short in order to recharge. For more information on caregiver stress see ElderCarelink

A Caregiver's Poem

I was looking through a 'Caregiver's Blog: Senior Care Support' and came across a poem that was shared by a writer, Dana, from the blog. The poem was written by Becky Netherland and Dana's grandmother shared it with her. I thought it was great and there is not much to say about it - just read!!! Enjoy!!

Grandma’s Pearls of Wisdom:
(picture from Caregivers Blog)

I’ve traveled paths you’ve yet to walk
Learned lessons old and new
And now this wisdom of my life
I’m blessed to share with you
Let kindness spread like sunshine
Embrace those who are sad
Respect their dignity, give them joy
And leave them feeling glad
Forgive those who might hurt you
And though you have your pride
Listen closely to their viewpoint
Try to see the other side
Walk softly when you’re angry
Try not to take offense
Invoke your sense of humor
Laughter’s power is immense!
Express what you are feeling
Your beliefs you should uphold
Don’t shy away from what is right
Be courageous and be bold
Keep hope right in your pocket
It will guide you day by day
Take it out when it is needed
When it’s near, you’ll find a way
Remember friends and family
Of which you are a precious part
Love deeply and love truly
Give freely from your heart
The world is far from perfect
There’s conflict and there’s strife
But you still can make a difference
By how you live your life
And so I’m very blessed to know
The wonders you will do
Because you are my granddaughter
And I believe in you.
