Caregiver, ask for HELP before it’s too late.
Oftentimes, caregiving families (including mine) dive into crisis mode before they know what they’re getting into. As they dive deeper and deeper, they lose sight of the shoreline. Soon, they come up and gasp for air. Looking around, there’s nothing but shark-filled waters. This is a risky proposition for both the caregiver and the care receiver.
Professionals want to throw out a life-preserver; but, they prefer to get involved earlier, to prevent families from being dragged out to sea.
The problem is we caregivers don’t know to ask for help.
