Our goal with this blog is simple: to educate and empower our clients and their loved ones by providing them with the tools and resources to make care easier. We do this by offering posts by experts on home care, transition care, dementia, Alzheimer's, multiple sclerosis and elderly care.
It takes a tremendous amount of courage to share your personal struggle with a disease like multiple sclerosis, but Megan White makes it look easy. She was like a ball of energy in her Ignite Phoenix presentation. She honestly described some of the ups and downs of MS and she touched on the emotional side of the disease as well. But, I couldn't help but admire the genuine optimism that came through and her passion.
Most of us will be in a position of providing care for a loved one at some point in our lives. I've been in this situation so I can tell you first hand that there will be difficult times for you and all of your family members. But, I can also reassure you that caring for an aging parent or loved one can be one of the most rewarding experiences in your life.
Caring for your loved ones is challenging. I know from personal experience that even professionals struggle with caring for family members. It's important to know that you are not alone in this situation and that there are resources available to help you.
