Your Proactive Caregiver Advocate : Dr. Cynthia Speaks!

Caregivers Everywhere: You Are Not Alone!

Let the year 2021 be the year of asking for help.

Many feel, including me, that being a caregiver is a lonely role. It does feel like it sometimes, but the reality is, we are never alone. I learned this the hard way. Asking for help does not discount your role or ability. There comes a time when we all need help, and to receive that help, we must ask for help. We call it respite care. Locate your village of rescuers and reach out. No one knows what you need until you tell them. Humans are not mind-readers; they operate on requests and information.

Let the year 2021 be the year of asking for help.

Happy New Year!
