Week of March 16, 2015
I recently received two separate requests for everything we had from a care-receiver's point of view. (One was from a care-receiver who wanted her family members to better understand what she was going through.)
I knew we had Topics, Fliers and videos on that but I had never thought of them as some kind of a bundle. I had to go through the list and start picking them out. Here's what I came up:
--When Your Care-receiver Doesn’t Want Help
--Your Care-receiver’s Spiritual Health
--Your Parent’s Generation
--Challenges of Communication
--When the Professionals and Care-receiver Disagree/Always a Parent: Worries about Adult Children
--Depression and Suicide
--Tips for Caregiver and Care-receiver
--Helping Your Loved One Find Forgiveness and Peace
--The Need to Have Fun
--Your Parent's—Your Care-receiver’s—Grief
--Dealing with Care-receiver and Caregiver Anger
--‘I Don’t Want to be a Burden’
--Independence, Control and Self-determination
--Helping Your Loved One Deal with Losses
--Keeping Secrets, Telling Lies
--Helping Your Parent Give Up the Car Keys
--Respectful Caregiving as the Parent-Child Roles Reverse
--DVD: Catholic Caregiving, Volume 2: Caregiving from a Care-receiver’s Point of View (Independence/Interdependence; Dealing with Losses, “I Don’t Want to be a Burden”); Guidelines for Making Decisions; Stages of Caregiving; Principles of Catholic Caregiving
The same videos are online at:
--JohntheCaregiver YouTube Channel
