Dr. Jeanette welcomes George Shannon and Chad Patrick Shannon to talk about their new book; The Best Seven Years of My Life: The Story of an Unlikely Caregiver . George took care of his wife at the end of her life and Chad was right there by his side to support his parents.
George shares "My goal was to make every day of Carol's life the best day of her life, to make sure she did not fell alone". This, is unconditional love.
George did not become the victim, the co sufferer or the martyr, as some men tend to take on a challenge of a wife's health crisis and make it about them, HE made it about HER!
A medical challenge at the end of life can be a gift of unconditional love if you engage and live fully in the moment. Are you scared? Feeling not heard? Overwhelmed? Burned out? And just cannot go on? Ask for help, find someone to talk to, read a book, listen to others words, and just step out of the path for a moment in the sun. You are needed and the care you are giving is a gift that is God sent.
We honor you, the caregivers, the supporters, and those who step up to 'see' those who are feeling lost in life. We are here! Find us!
Dr. Jeanette will be starting a caregiver page on her website to offer free listening sessions that are supported by the donations to the radio show. Please sign up for the newsletter and you will find the path to get help. We ARE here, just reach out.
