Jenny, I can see how you feel. I wouldn’t want someone to cut my meat for me if I could do it. Sometimes people don’t see what they are doing. I, too, use to clean my house when my children were asleep. It seemed like it was the only time that I could catch up. I want you to know how much I appreciate all that you have done in my life by reading what you have done. It always makes me think about what I am doing in my life to make things better for myself and others. I read this site often. Good Luck in the New Year and Our family in Indy wishes the best and most blessed year for your family. Love, Rita
Hi, Jenny – Happy New Year – I completely understand how you feel about caregivers doing too much – that’s why I made the change to assisted living management over other types. It takes a special person and training to realize that we should be “assisting” people with their things rather than to do for them or have them assist us! You go girl and keep that frame of mind!
Take care — Love – Sherry
