“You greatly exceeded expectations. One of our employees said, "I could have listen to him for another hour." Imagine, a person at the beach wanting a meeting to last longer....Now, that comment is high praise. As you know, for me, A Perfect Day is enjoying the beach on pay day. A relatively young adjuster ...attending his second conference...commented that he didn't know if it were possible for a future conference to have a better program. I was told that your ten ideas for Grabbing a Great Life was the focus of (after conference) conversation. I cannot recall a previous speaker whose comments dominated the conversations in the hospitality room. As I commented during one of our discussions, for me, the genius of your ideas is their application to work, to personal relationships, and to leisure activities; sound principles are sound principles. People enjoy listening to you; you connect with the audience; this connection with the audience is anotherreason they remember your ideas and suggestions.”

Let's be honest, being a family or professional caregiver is a wonderfully supportive, loving and caring activity, but it can also be emotionally-draining, physically stressful and mentally overwhelming. I know, I'm a caregiver. If you've ever felt that caregiving was taking over your life, read on….

Dear Caregiver:
You are not alone!

That is the first fact about taking care of yourself that you must understand. You are not alone. You have approximately 50 million other brothers and sisters in caregiving situations.

I'm one of them! I was a caregiver for my father and am currently helping to care for my 84 year-old mother who has Alzheimer's.

Also, in the late '90s I completed a masters degree with a focus on family caregiver wellness at Duke University.

One of the wonderful things to come out of my masters experience was the creation of the video, Care for the Caregiver©.

I was delighted when the video won the national Caregiver Friendly Award from Today's Caregiver Magazine©.

What I've discovered is that caregiving can be wonderfully gratifying but it can also be a slog through the mud depending on the person for whom you are caring, their condition, your family, your community, your finances and the healthcare and government officials you come in contact with.

If you let it, caregiving can negatively affect your mental and physical health. Caregivers report higher rates of depression and physical illness. University of Pittsburgh researchers report that 6% of family caregivers will die due to the stresses of caregiving.

The emotional stress of caregiving can be overwhelming, especially in relationships that were challenging to begin with. The constant demand for care often changes how we feel, not only about the person for whom we are caring, but about family, friends and ourselves.

To put it simply, caregiving affects what goes on in our heads. Our memory, ability to focus and how we think are all affected by caregiver stress.

Our home life can be dramatically and negatively affected by our caregiving responsibilities. They affect our relationships with spouses, partners, children and friends.

The time and effort we invest in our workplaces, in our careers, are impacted by caregiving. If you don't work for an organization with a positive caregiving policy or if your boss/job is less-than-flexible caregiving can easily affect your ability to earn a living.

Winner of the National Caregiver Friendly Award, the video, Care for the Caregiver©, offers 100+ ideas, tips, strategies and motivators to help you meet the challenges of caregiving.
