It happens to most of us. One day we will be taking care of the people who used to take care of us. It won’t be easy and we probably won’t like it most of the time but in the end we don’t have a choice. Being a caregiver requires so much, sometimes too much and it becomes hard to find the joy in it.
Most of the time it is not a choice that we are allowed to make. More of an added responsibility that is thrust upon us. For most of us, we do it because of financial reasons. Not everyone can afford to live in a care-home or pay for someone to take care of them in their home.
If you are a caregiver and you need a break…you want to find the joy in it, you need some support to keep you going, or just want to laugh…read Chicken Soup for the Soul - Family Caregivers.
This book has 101 stories all written by caregivers. Stories that you can relate to. Stories that you can laugh and cry with. Stories that will lift your spirits, make you no longer feel alone and give you emotional support.
Are you a caregiver? How long have you been doing it and how has it affected your life?
