Caregiving Is a Full Time Job!


Well, here it is October already. Normally, I would ask that old familiar question…”where did the time go”? For once, I don’t need to ask because I know exactly where the time went.

8:00 am - I’m up in the morning making Mama’s breakfast and medicines for the 9:00 am scheduled time. Wash her dirty clothes, dry them, and get them ready for her to fold.

11:00 am – Snack time, no meds.

1:00 pm – Lunch time, no meds.

3:00 pm – Snack time. Time for 3 pm meds

6:00 pm – Dinner time and time for 6 pm meds. Time to get ready for bed, she goes to bed with the chickens.

This is just the things that are scheduled. There are many more that are not listed here. And, so the day goes in the life of this caregiver.


Wheeeew!!!

Well I understand this totally. God bless you for taking care of your Mom. It is overwhelming at times, and you don't even realize it. Be sure to take some time for yourself even if it is to read a magazine with your feet up while sipping on the drink of your choice!!

You're a wonderful daughter for taking care of your mom. They've taken care of us, and at this stage we need to take care of them.

You're being such a terrific daughter, Leona. Right now, Mom is the one who still takes care of us. The time will come though when I'll have to get advice from you.
