That is a great article Robin.

I have been both caregiver and care-receiver.  I would much rather be the caregiver.  I hate feeling helpless.  It's just my pride, I know.....but also, it's my guilt in having to take up time of a caregiver's life.

Someone who is vibrant and healthy shouldn't be stuck inside, taking care of me.  Of course, I am humbled by their care and eternally grateful.

Great information. Sometimes we forget, ok most of the time I forget or don't feel like doing my own chores, laundry, etc after being a caregiver for so many years.

Thanks for posting.
