When you are a family caregiver, you give your time, your patience, your love. You give 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. What you’re doing is a blessing for your loved one. It’s a blessing for you. But it is NOT easy.
Do you find yourself losing patience with your loved one?
Are you exhausted every day?
How long has it been since you went to lunch with your best friend?
Have you lost interest in hobbies that you used to love?
Have you lost touch with your circle of friends?
Do you feel your own health suffering?
Do you find it difficult to go out to a restaurant or a store with your loved one?
Do you find yourself missing regular things like going to church because you worry about how your loved one might act?
YOU DO NOT HAVE TO DO THIS ALONE.
Wouldn’t it be nice to have a few hours to reconnect with your friends?
Wouldn’t you like to carve out some time for exercise, shopping, reading, hobbies, Bible study?
How about spending a few hours alone in your house to just relax?
Would you like to be able to do that shopping all alone?
How much better would you feel towards your loved one if you could only have a few hours to relax from the duties of caregiving?
THOSE THINGS REALLY CAN HAPPEN.
You are choosing to keep your loved one home for a reason. Maybe you made a promise long ago. Maybe it just feels like what you should do because you know that YOU want to age in place. Maybe the thought of losing all of your savings to long term care is frightening.
Whatever the reason, you’ve made a choice. It’s not an easy choice. But it’s a choice that you have made. Guess what? This choice does NOT mean that you have to do everything alone. This choice does not mean that you must spend every minute of every day caring for your loved one. You don’t have to put your life completely on hold. You CAN find balance.
