Your Proactive Caregiver Advocate: Dr. Cynthia Speaks | by Dr. Cynthia J. Hickman | Dec, 2021

Theme: Carers, we’re on the cusp of a new year

Caregivers, I salute you! I appreciate you! I appreciate you! I’m respecting you! I know your strugglees. I know your pain! I know your challenges and guess what? They will continue in 2022. Cheer up; We have each other. During this past year’s 100 blog posts, I’ve shared with you how to turn your lemons into lemonade, from understanding the safety issues that go along with our loved ones to ways to help loved ones age. I have asked you to be aware of nutritional health practices, especially with chronically ill care recipients.

I want you to remember that being proactive is the best way to navigate the world of caregiving. Knowing what to do and what is the best way to take care of our loved ones is a daily learning platform. Aging is a fact of life and will affect all families. But if we remove the blinders and pay attention to our elderly parents and other family members, we can make changes before they are needed. Yes, change is difficult, but care is required for those we love. True, we may not understand what may be vital in the field of caregiving, but I hope you will continue to follow me for information to help you care for others. The more you know about the aging process, the more proactive actions you can take. Set a goal of keeping loved ones in their environment as much as possible around the family and friends they love. Loved ones should never feel like a burden, so knowing how to act and talk to seniors is important. It spreads love and joy.

Finally, the best place for our loved ones at the end of life is surrounded by the love of family and, hopefully, at home, a home they know so well and feel most loved and appreciated. as Proactive attorney for your caregiver, I want you to know; I’m here to serve you.
