Caring for the Caregiver

Being a caregiver for someone with a chronic illness or disability, as the quote below indicates, is hard work but work filled with great satisfaction. It is important though for the caregiver to remember to take care of themselves as they continue to care for others. This section is just for you - all the marvelous, loving, caring people in this world who are there for those who are less able. We salute you and appreciate all you do.


"Caregiver: that word should weigh more than others on a page, sag it down a bit and wrinkle it, because the simple-sounding job frazzles as it consumes and depletes. Not that it's only gloomy. Caregiving offers many fringe benefits, including the sheer sensory delight of nourishing and grooming, sharing, and playing. There's something uniquely fulfilling about being a lodestar, feeling so deeply needed, and it's fun finding creative ways to gladden a loved one's life. But caregiving does buttonhole you; you're stitched in one place."
