7 Caregiver Landmines …and How You Can Avoid Them
The road of a caregiver has pitfalls—I call them “caregiver landmines.” Thirty years of serving as a caregiver has taught me this—the hard way.
Think of me as the “Crash-Test Dummy of Caregivers!”™
We will identify seven caregiver landmines that can wreak havoc in a caregiver’s life—and the life of the caregiver’s vulnerable loved one. These caregiver landmines can explode and knock you so far off course, that you have no idea what’s up, down, sideways, or frontwards. Your thinking can become distorted, and you would swear that you are safely navigating the path, while actually heading straight off a cliff. Worse yet, we caregivers aren’t limited to just one landmine field. Those suckers get reset every day, and a new field often awaits in the morning.
That’s the bad news.
Here’s the good news: you have a resource and tool right now to walk you safely and confidently through a field of caregiver landmines.
