Life from Your Care-receiver's
Point of View

Week of March 16, 2015
Prayer Requests

Dear Friends,

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

--Understanding Aging

--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:
