As a Caregiver, a strength you may reveal – is Managing in the face of the unknown.
Do remember it is also important for you to use Managing for you and your needs as a Caregiver.
Managing is often resting in reality
The Caregiver Strength of Managing
Managing is incredible because it will help you to continue, even when you are not getting, the answers you need, to move forward in any direction.
When you are caring and supporting a Loved One,
You may even do see so many changes of your loved one, which you can be scared or
Like getting up in the middle of the night, when you have gotten no sleep at all.
Day after day, month after month, year after year, helping in every way possible.
Managing is often shown in the face of fear
Caregiver Story of Managing
I wondered why I was so tired, then I began to realize
All the different things I was managing.
Preparing My Loved One emotional & physically
NIL by mouth for this test.
Travel to find the place for the test.
Food for after the test.
Negotiation of time, energy and resources of my Loved One.
Decoding the seemingly coded messages from the Medical Staff.
Translating this same information to my Loved One and Extended Family.
Waiting for test results, checking on safety & security of my Loved One.
Not to mention, immediate family & work/business needs.
These are the tip of the iceberg.
Remember you have the order, the method, and organization to see this through!
