Senior Care Giving

When it comes to senior care, there's a reason they call it care giving.  Even if you're being compensated for it, you're giving these people something important and valuable...a piece of yourself.  If you have the right attitude, you probably consider it a privilege.  I know that's how I felt with my Mom.  I was able to serve her and my family by taking on the responsibility for her care.  Here are some Senior Care Books you may find useful.  As you know, senior care is as demanding and stressful as child care, but without the optimism.  Children get more self-reliant every day.  You can imagine a bright and wonderful future as a result of doing the parenting job well.  With a senior, it's just the opposite.  Despite your best efforts, the end is always the same.  This is why there is such a high burn-out in professional long-term care.  While I was a chaplain at an assisted living facility, I saw many dedicated people repeatedly hurt by the loss of people they had grown attached to.  The committed, loving care givers are repeatedly hurt until they can't do the job any more, leaving the ones who don't give a rip.  With my Mom, I oversaw her long-term care by professionals.  If you're doing this, or are caring for a loved one yourself, these pages are for you and for them.  We'll cover tips on all aspects of senior care giving.  I pray these pages help you in your highly admirable efforts toward senior care giving:
