Here's a picture of me and my mom having a sunny moment together. It was taken at a local water park, on a beautiful and clear day last summer.
I chose to include this photo because it captures a message, a main reason I'm here.
See, as caregivers we know that most days aren't all sunny, sweet and easy. No, a better word for what we do is: challenging.
Additionally, did you notice where I said we were in this photo? A local water park. —What?
That's right, we go lots of places with my mom; places that many people may not have considered would be locations they could visit with an older adult.
This will be an important distinction between what I provide and what the other experts on this site offer.
I'm one of the lucky ones. My mom is able to walk and do a lot of things that many older adults cannot do. The bigger issues we have, concern dementia and other, more manageable health issues.
I have a heart for all of our elderly. I understand that they need us. And I know that they won't get the help they need, if folks can't or won't step up to the plate.
So what I'm here to offer, is a sharing of what I do; how I do those things; and what is possible. In that way, I hope to impart and empower others to do the same.
But before I sign off, I want to make a bold and strong statement that I am able to do what I do SOLELY because God makes me able. He gets ALL of the credit. I'm "dead dog serious" about that. I do nothing on my own. Hallelujah. Let's encourage each other... and that's how we'll make it through all that Life throws our way.
I look forward to getting to know you more. Thanks for reading this!
