Caregivers are those people who due everything they can within their power to give the best quality of life they can for those they love. I had a cardiac surgeon say to me one day ” your life will change in ways you will never expect”. He was so very right and yet you keep fighting the fight day in and day out. When someone needs a caregiver the caregiver has to face one fact. That all those people who say they will help won’t. It’s like a funeral. When someone dies you get many people say they will always be there for you. Then over the next several weeks they fade away. The reason? In most cases it’s called life. For many caregivers it’s a task that they are not able to handle. Not for lack of trying but the lack of knowledge. As I have said many times “there is no manual for this stuff”. Being a caregiver many times is a solo activity. You can throw every treatment know to mankind to try and help your loved one but in the end the truth is death wins. Caregivers often they win the battle but lose the war. The question is how soon will that war win?
