As a Caregiver, a strength you may reveal – is Patience in the face of the unknown.
Do remember it is also important for you to use patience for you and your needs as a Caregiver.
Patience is often resting in reality
The Caregiver Strength of Patience
Patience 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 tolerate the most challenging people for Your Loved One 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.
Patience is often shown resting in reality
Caregiver Story of Patience
Have you ever had a question being asked once and you gave the answer, and that is normal communication.
What happens when you are asked the exact same question in the morning and again in the afternoon?
We think the question must have been forgotten.
What about the same question being repeated every hour?
I remember the same question was being asked by my Loved One.
Every 10-15 minutes, Time and time again, over and over the same question or story..
Some days, I would begin to feel a little frustrated. Once or twice, I tried a different answer, to try and feel like I was keeping my sanity.
Yet it didn’t seem to work, my Loved One still repeated the same question, I couldn’t solve this one.
Patience when all else fails…
Remember you have the endurance, persistence, tolerance to see this through!
Is Patience a strength of yours?- What else are your Strengths?
