Hey guys,
Which is worse: learning your loved one wants a caregiver or finding out you’re it?
Which is better: building the framework for a structure before you need it or discovering there were resources available to help with your situation?
An entire generation of baby boomers will realize those shortcomings of our health care system.
We’ve got dementia waiting for those people who outlast other sorts of infirmities.
Call me crazy but I am advocating men become caregivers.

Home again

Caregiver surveys are enlightening. People give care to their parents, spouses, partners, and children. And in no particular order or completeness, their caregiving duties range all over the board: elder care, cancers (lung, liver, breast, throat, uterine, others), multiple sclerosis, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, anxiety, Down’s syndrome, heart attack, stroke, Parkinson’s disease, adoption, and more.

Rarely does anyone feel qualified to become a caregiver. That is true for most situations of chronic or serious illness but it also can apply whenever someone experiences a loss of self sufficiency or becomes dependent on someone else.

It is frustrating when we must witness the suffering of others.

Research shows results which demonstrate that elders with at least one daughter are 75% less likely to be living in a nursing home than those who have no daughters.

I’ve just begun my study of male caregiving. I know that people who grew up with loving Dads are blessed with good hearts.

Make global the sense every person is treated with dignity in community.
