Everyone needs some respite – (Posted late on 11/07 from 11/06)

Elderly caregivers need to take some time for themselves or they will surely burn out as this position is one of great sacrifice; one that requires the utmost patience and lack of self as there is hardly ever time to indulge in anything personal when there is a senior client left to consider. That is why I set my hours according to what is best for me and my boys.

That schedule does not always get upheld, however. In fact, sometimes four times per week I sacrifice time I get to spend with Drew simply to indulge my clients and make certain that I make enough money to support both of my boys.

By Friday, though, I am able to take some personal time and do things for my home and my family members. Today I did just that. I organized and cleaned and am preparing my house for upcoming parties and family and everything! I was so excited to do it!

I don’t have to Dare to Let Go of anything when all my ducks are in a row. Thankfully a little respite gives this caregiver what she needs in order to carry forth with what she believes so wholeheartedly in!
