In 2006, my mom had a stroke. It has been very challenging – at times -caring for my mom as well as making decisions about her welfare. Yet there is little in my life that has taught me more about patience, compassion, faith, and love.
When I began this journey in 2006, I had no idea how long our family, friends, and I would be coping with these complicated and important issues regarding my mother’s care.
But with all the many complications and pain, there has been much growth and joy. I am very grateful for the opportunities that I have had to learn about caring for aging adults.
Janet Child from the Center for Living with Dying has a playlist with several videos about caregiving for aging parents and as well as grief. Please watch these videos:
