Join Liz Cornish of New Season In Life, Senior & Memory Care Consultants and Women Reshaping Lives, Counseling Practice of Susan L. Levine as we discuss Caregiving: Guilt & Duty, It’s Complicated Isn’t It
This month marks nineteen years since I lost my mother to Alzheimer’s. My memories of that long goodbye are filled with touching, loving moments and sad, guilt ridden times.
I had never thought about being a caregiver for a parent until it just happened – a sudden fall, broken hip and Alzheimer’s diagnosis up-ended my life at the time.
There was never a doubt that my love, gratitude and values had taught me that my duty and obligation as a daughter was to care for mom as she had cared for me. I never waivered from that belief.
But…the reality of adding caregiving to being wife, mom, graduate school student and having a full-time job had me overwhelmed with trying to balance it all. How often I felt like I was failing my mom if I couldn’t get to the nursing home more or do more for her. Our long goodbye lasted 10 years. Over that time I learned how taking care of myself helped me be a better caregiver to my mom.
