On Caring & Sharing, we spend a good deal of time talking about serious issues on providing care for our aging loved ones. Many of your responses have been moving and poignant, a way for you to express the stress and heartache that often comes with being a caregiver. We are proud and honored to be able to provide our readers with a forum to express such emotions.
But as any caregiver knows, there can be lighthearted moments, whether intentional or otherwise, that crop up from time to time and those are to be cherished as well. As Patricia Grace indicates, this isn’t about making fun of a senior who may be in a compromised mental state. If you read her story about her mother, who came to visit with her “cherry red eyebrows” you’ll see what I mean. (Thanks to ElderCareRN on Twitter for finding and posting this gem.)
Do you have any memories of caring for a senior loved one that bring a smile to your face? Please share, as it might brighten up another caregiver’s day.
