HAPPY NEW YEAR!
One full week of 2010 has passed…how have these initial days of your new year been going?
My wish is that you remain filled with hope because the truth is what other option do you have?
If you choose to grow sad and lose hope, your caregiving journey will grow even more difficult amidst the darkness.
Look for the small joys; sometimes, they’re really tiny and you have to look really hard. But once you find them you rediscover your smile and moments of happiness begin to fill your heart and your loved one can feel it in your actions. All of a sudden you find caregiving not as challenging. TRY IT, then write to me at BrendaAvadian@TheCaregiversVoice.com.
THE CAREGIVER’S VOICE WEBSITE UPGRADE
We are still on schedule for our Spring launch of the newly revised and upgraded TheCaregiversVoice.com, designed with you in mind–to serve more of your needs at one location.
Until then, we’ll have a “sneak preview” of the new site at the earliest in late January or, the latest, by early February.
We’d love to have your comments!
FINDING THE JOY IN ALZHEIMERS on Ebay for $85.31!
We couldn’t believe it when we saw this, but the first volume of our Finding the JOY series: Finding the Joy in Alzheimer’s: Caregivers Share the JOYFUL Times is priced on eBay for this astronomical figure. [10/27/2017: Product on EBay no longer available]. Then again, we only have ten copies of the initial (2001) print run. The updated 2006 edition is the one that is available now. You can find it for only $14.95 here.
