    #Throwback - Bringing Dignity & Compassion to Caregiving

    in Caregiving

    “I Am Somebody” is a spiritually nourishing book by poet/author Frances H. Kakugawa - that is also likely to be healing for people who lack the words to describe their caregiving experiences, both past and present, and the range of emotions that accompany those experiences.


    Her message is a powerful one: Despite all the demands and burdens that caring for someone with dementia entail, the bottom line is never to forget that person’s humanity. The care recipient may no longer have the memories, abilities and personality that he or she once did, but there is a soul within that body that responds to and is deserving of love and compassion.

    Care Break: If There's So Many of Us, Why Is Caregiving So Lonely?

    in Caregiving

    Pew Research Center released a study in 2013 that says about 39% of U. S. adults–up from 30% in 2010–care for an adult or child with significant health issues.


    In other words, two in every five individuals are family caregivers.


    I’ve been thinking about this number because I can’t quite get it to add up.


    Here’s why. If 39% of U.S. adults are family caregivers, why is caregiving still such a lonely and isolating experience? Why, every year in our annual family caregiver survey, do you talk about the loneliness of the experience? Why haven’t more programs and services been added in your community to help you? Why do you still worry about telling your boss about your caregiving responsibilities? Why doesn’t the doctor’s office share a list of caregiving resources to help you? Why doesn’t a home health agency refer you to a website, like ours, so you can connect with others in a similar situation? Why can’t you find a family restroom to assist your caree?


    Why is caregiving still an experience that feels like it’s just you rather than one that feels like it’s you plus (and within) a community that supports?


    Bruce and I will share our thoughts about why we think caregiving is still such a lonely experience.
