When you decide to care for an elderly parent, you do so out of love, responsibility or compassion. Not because you’re trained to.
“The unknown is always scarier than the known. List those things that are keeping you up at night or creep into your thoughts as you are going through your day. Take 15 minutes to research solutions, and continue to do this every day until you have the answer to your problem. Things that seem overwhelming will continue to overwhelm until you face these. The answer is there, and people who have gone on your journey before you have the answer. Use your time wisely, and reach out to those people.”—Calhoun
