Two different caregivers shared the same sentiment to me this past week. “I’ll get help when it’s beyond my control.”
When I quietly asked what shape they (and their loved ones) would be at that point, they both gave them same response: silence.
Many caregivers competently (and admirably) handle enormous challenges. The issue, however, is not how competent the caregiver is today. Caregiving takes a huge toll on physical, emotional, fiscal, and spiritual health. The time to ask for help is not when we’re overwhelmed, but to seek it in stages long before the critical point.
