THIS WEEK: Caretakers vs Caregivers, What do you CARE?,

Is there a difference between caretaking and caregiving? Although many people interchange these two words,  it is imperative that we understand how they are not the same. Remember,  the words we use in thought and speech,  creates the realities that we see.

While "care" is the same in both words,  it's the 'give' and 'take' that significantly impacts how care is provided. One crosses boundaries while the other creates new ones.  One is judgmental and the other is nonjudgemental.  One "fixes" the problem while the other creates solutions.  

Tonight,  Kevin will share his experiences of having people in his life who took on one or the other role during his journey,  particularly after acquiring his brain injury. Kevin will examine these roles as he points out the key differences between caretaking and caregiving. While it is true that "One person caring about another represent's life's greatest value," (Jim Rohn) it is the presentation of caring that makes the difference in creating a FUNctional life.
