THE QUANDARY OF CAREGIVING

Dec 11th, 2013 | By Sharon Shaw Elrod MSW EdD | Category: Senior Moments Blog

The Internet guides for caregivers are so numerous it is difficult to both count them and sort them into helpful categories. A simple query, such as ‘caregiving issues’, produces over a million responses. And many of the articles offer very good advice for caregivers seeking help managing the sometimes overwhelming demands on their time.

Suggestions for caregivers ring similar tones… ask for help; accept offers of help; take time off to spend with friends; meditate; relaxation routines… All the advice is helpful, and much of it is focused on what to do for yourself as a caregiver. Individual response will be based on individual need and what ‘works’ for each.
