We decided it was a good idea to hire a caregiver to come in for those times when we need a little extra help. She came for a few hours this morning. We had time to talk for a while before my mom got up. I told her my history of caring for my parents and how I tried my best to care for my dad. She told me that she was caring for her mom who had dementia and died last year. Our experiences and current feelings were very similar. It was so validating. She was super sweet and both my mom and I felt very comfortable with her. She was indeed a blessing.
I Found God today in an empathetic caregiver.
