You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.- Kahlil Gibran
As we enjoy the 2010 Winter Olympics as they continue on this week, I'd like to grant gold and silver medals to all those caregivers, family members and others who care for the elderly day in and day out. Each of you are the champion caregivers.
Thanks to this week's wonderful participants for sharing their posts with us. Enjoy!
Kaye Swain presents Do You Love Christian Spy Novels As Much As This Grandma? posted at SandwichINK.com, saying, "Waiting, a lot, seems to be something all of us who are caring for the elderly members of our family have in common. Waiting at the doctors' offices, dentists's offices, X-ray waiting rooms, etc. Having a book handy makes the wait a lot shorter. That's why I'm thrilled to be able to give away two copies of a fascinating mystery novel at SandwichINK. Fun for you, as a caregiver to enjoy AND fun to share with your elderly parents."
Kaye Swain presents Older Homes With Bigger Rooms for the Sandwich Generation? posted at SandwichINK Real Estate Info, saying, "If you're thinking of buying an older, fixer-upper in order to get more space so your elderly parents can move in, be sure to do your homework!"
Tom Bills presents Adult Day Care; How to Find the Best Adult Day Care Center for You posted at In-LawSuite.com, saying, "Practical step by step guide and overview of adult day care centers, options, what services they provide, benefits, and how to choose the best adult day care center to fit your needs and those of your elderly loved one. Adult day care is an important part of balanced elder home care."
