Caregiving is a 24 hour job. While many moments are filled to the brim with joy and gratitude, some moments are extremely tough. For me, it’s very difficult to hear my Dad’s speech slowing. He does a great job of raising his voice so we can hear him. But it takes conscious effort. What is your least favorite part of caregiving? Have you found ways to make it easier for yourself and your loved one?
Watching the transformation of my husband – a strong-willed and very independent business owner become a slow-moving and humble elderly man. So sad! His loss of enthusiasm for conversation, debating, quietness. I would love to see and hear him laugh like he used to. I miss the intimacy of all our special moments. I am thankful for the best memories of my life.
