A caregiver is…

  • A caregiver is sensitive to others and to the value of life. Caregivers learn the importance of rising above–not masking–their feelings. The caregiving man must enlarge his comfort zone, placing his own needs for validation into the ever changing queue of reprioritized needs for action.

  • Caregiving is a lot like selecting the proper sandpaper grit for a job. Too fine and you manage only to become abrasive without accomplishing any real progress; too coarse and you eat away the very shape you hoped to attain.

  • Giving care is a choice and not an obligation but a blessing. Choosing to not give care is a curse and not a crime but a loss.

  • Caregiving begins with awareness. Everyone can develop new reasons for receiving care. Anyone can become a better caregiver.
