I was raised with the saying, "Where there is a Will, there is a way." As the roles switched between mother and daughter for me, I learned to accept a revision to this saying to include "Where a Will is broken, a caregiver is born." The birth of a new way of life may not always be welcomed.
Studies show that caregivers across the board continue to show worsening health, no matter age or race. It does not matter how rich or poor, marital status or if you had a choice or not. We are facing challenges beyond normal societal expectations.
I have discovered how to identify areas that can help reduce stress, anxiety, and fear through my journey. Allow me to help you navigate the challenges of your own caregiver's path.
