Caregiver Story of Understand

As a caregiver you understand more then you ever realized about your Loved One.

I didn’t realize how much this was true.

Until, I was taking my Loved One to be with a group of people for a morning.

The Social Worker advised, my Loved One needed to go out and be with other people around the same age, then recommended a group, to get started with.

So in my heart, this felt like a disaster waiting to happen.

He didn’t want to go in the first place.

I didn’t see it was a comfortable place for him either.

It didn’t connect with anything he had ever been involved in.

Yet the words of the Social Worker kept playing in my mind.

He needs to go out…

I went to pick him up, he was so frustrated.

His only words were,

Your not going to take me back there again are you.

I said no.

So began my search for a comfortable place for him.

Remember you have appreciate, know, realize to see this through!

Caregiver Story of Learn

I would so want answers to my Loved Ones needs.

It would often keep me awake at night, just wondering,

“How to best get the next piece of the puzzle.”

I needed to keep learning,

To understand the steps,

“What else is going to help?”

“How can I understand  what to expect”

I can’t get any help until I have a diagnosis.

Yet, I discovered, it was taking days,

Days turned into weeks.

Weeks turned into months

And months just continued.

Because it wasn’t clear,

It wasn’t a straight forward diagnosis.

It felt like it was, if it isn’t a,b,c,d,e,f,g,h,I,j….x,y,z.

Then we may know it’s not those options.

Learning all the time what didn’t work,

Brought us a step closer to what may.

Remember you have the study, the ascertain, discover to see this through!

As a caregiver there are so many ways, you give.

Some areas of giving are in Time, Energy, Emotionally, Financially, Physically & Socially.

Yet it is also in the little things, in life,

That giving is often appreciated the most.

Giving a touch on the hand, for comfort.

Giving the look of concern from your eyes, to ease their pain.

Giving a cool drink, when needed most.

Giving the gift of a story, to feel reassure.

I remember hearing just a word,

From someone who cares to a Loved One,

And that made all the difference between, help & hope.
