If you’ve seen one caregiver . . . #endalz

I have read these words many times. “If you have seen one person with Alzheimer’s, you’ve seen one person with Alzheimer’s.” In my opinion, the underlying statement there is true about every human, sick, hurt or perfectly healthy. “If you have seen one person, you have seen one person.” So “If you have seen one caregiver, you have seen one caregiver.” Some have more than others, for whatever reason, some have more help available, for whatever reason, some have better health, for whatever reason and some have more information about such things, for whatever reason. Being a caregiver for any situation puts us near someone that is struggling and it’s tough to see someone struggle. Being a caregiver takes focus off of the plans the caregiver may have made. Being a caregiver may affect your health, finances and many other things. “Yep, if you’ve seen one caregiver, you’ve seen one caregiver.” My point is that assuming may give us a tool for speeding through life, but for me, well, I don’t want to assume stuff anymore.
