Some of the main concerns Caregivers have are:
Information about available resources
Communicating with professionals
Disease specific information
Recruiting competent help
Learning care tasks
How to communicate with persons with dementiaLegal advice
As a volunteer Service Missionary, I will be helping Caregivers learn about these areas of concern. Since I'm just starting out, I'm not sure exactly how, what, or when I'll be helping, but I'm being trained and will be glad to serve wherever needed!
Ali, from Standing For Something invited me to do an article about being a Service Missionary and the Alzheimer's Association. I invite you to visit her site and let her know you're visiting from Rise Above Your Limits..... HERE is a direct link to my article. I'm so thankful to Ali sharing for this with her readers.
One of my goals is to write informative Alzheimer's articles for my blog and also for wikiMommy.com. Often Mommy's find themselves being Caregivers to their own Mommy's and Daddy's. I want to be able to help ease their burden by sharing and teaching them ways to care for themselves while caring for their parents.
