Never Forgotten: A Caregiver's Journey
I was my Mother’s caregiver (Alzheimer’s) 13 years ago.
This was the hardest most challenging aspect in my life so far. However, it was also the most rewarding in the end. I had such a huge sense of peace knowing what I had accomplished.
Alzheimer's Caregiver Support Group
I decided to use my experiences of those 7 years to help other caregivers. I started a monthly caregiver support group in my home. Such a great feeling of love and warmth I am receiving from those in need of support, friendship, direction and just plain caring. It's a place to vent anger, fear, or frustrations and be with those that understand. Most of all, a place where others know that they're not alone. Talking about stages and really getting into the nitty-gritty or as I call it the good, the bad and the ugly, you will not find from most medical professionals but want to know.
This is the legacy I carry in honor of my mother and never forgotten.
