On caregivers, faith, family, and writing…

Communicating through Alzheimer's

If I had seen this list while I was still caring for Mom and Dad, I would have enlarged it and posted it prominently in every room in the house. It is so easy to get frustrated by the endless questions, the repetitive stories, the strange and seemingly defiant behavior. These few reminders might help a frazzled caregiver look past the disease, see the lost and frightened loved one behind it, and remember the love.

Love is patient, love is kind. 1 Corinthians 13:4

If you’re reading this and thinking, that’s good advice, but it’s so hard to do, I have one more word for you. When you fail – and you will fail – remember to be patient and kind with yourself, too.

Blessings,

Linda
