Oftentimes as Caregivers, we think we are alone. We take the person to numerous doctor appointments, physical therapy appointments, recreational appointments as well as personal grooming appointments. We rise early to prepare meals, prepare clothing as well as prepare medicine in order to make sure the day is a productive one. And for those of us that work full-time, we go to work, then come home to close the night out, by making sure we spend time with the person that we are caring for.
One of many things I have learned over the years, is that you have to know when to ask for help. You can not possibly do everything alone. They say it takes a village to raise kids nowadays. Well, I say it takes a village to be a Caregiver. So learn to ask for help, you will be surprised the responses you get. And how much it will help you in your everyday life!
