About me

Hi, I’m Sunday,  I’m caregiver for my elderly Mother and it has taken some adjustments for both of us. I am still learning through trial and error the things I should and should not be doing. In the beginning I wanted to do everything for her and before long I realized that I was setting myself up for a quick caregiver breakdown!

One thing I have learned is not to hinder. If they can do some things for themselves, let them. I know you and I can get the same thing done faster and more efficiently but we need to let them help themselves while they can. Encourage them; they need that as much as we do so let them keep their dignity as long as possible.

Any kind of care-giving is a tough job and I know some of you take care of others that are in worse health than my Mother. I think of all of you every day and hope that you are taking care of yourselves. You can’t take care of someone else properly until you realize this. Caregiver burnout is real so take care. Elderly care for me is getting to know my parent better and I am always learning something new about her, it is an amazing opportunity.

She is Amazing!

I love her so much.

  1. Thanks for any other wonderful post. Where else may anyone get that kind of info in such an ideal approach of writing? I have a presentation subsequent week, and I’m on the search for such information.

  2. Almost 20 years ago, I lost my first wife to colon cancer. I wish I’d known then what I’ve leneard from Kay Marshall Strom’s excellent Caregiver’s Survival book. Like many people suddenly caught up in the role of caregiver, I was unprepared mentally, physically, and emotionally for the role. I did my best then, but it was far short of what I could have done for her, for the children, and for myself had I only known. My hope now is that this book will find its way to where it’s needed: to those facing the prospect of providing the primary care for a loved one in failing health, so that this extremely painful journey can be made more tolerable by Ms. Strom’s tender, Christian insights and advice. She connects to the reader by laying bare her own doubts and hardships in more than 7 years of caring for her terminally ill husband. Her book is filled with the dignity, respect, and hope that, through God’s inspiration, can be developed in even the most hopeless of cases.
