We’re on our way with our meetings and so happy to have more of you attending. There are many plans for various speakers to highlight each meeting, but communicating with national and local participants, our present health crisis is hindering obtaining speakers. This is not stopping us from pursuing further, taking whatever materials can be helpful for our discussions and developing our own resources. Only through the active involvement of those who attend can we educate, support, and become better informed to care for our loved ones. Sometimes, if they will come, it would be very special to hear their concerns so we can, together, touch our sources to make it a win-win for all.
“Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.”—Helen Keller
So as the caregiver, state your gratitudes, maybe two, maybe five each day, and take care of your own health needs so you will be equipped to be caring for your loved one.
