Stick to the script

The first step in becoming better at receiving support in the caregiving role is to visit with your neighbor. A fellow caregiver has insights but you must both have a predisposition to share.

This is not the same as preaching. Nor does one person do all the talking while the other person does all the listening. Sometimes the greatest gifts given are shared between friends. Companionship and this familiarity may have been lost when giving care became most critical.

The ITN program Agenda is formatted such that comfort zones are increased and barriers become relaxed.
