About those caregivers – it’s an honor to know them

I’ve heard people say, the caregiver has no choice. I totally disagree. There is always a choice. People can walk away. They chose to not walk away. The caregiver made a choice. What an honor for me to have met so many that made that choice. 

I vividly remember hundreds of conversations with caregivers that put their life on hold to keep another person safe. I remember hundreds of them telling me they can no longer afford to eat properly and purchase medication for themselves. This is real stuff.

This is not just about alzheimer’s caregivers. It can be the same for any caregiver.
