HOME-THE DIARY OF AN ALZHEIMER’S CAREGIVER
Hi! Welcome to “The Diary of an Alzheimer’s Caregiver”!
ARE YOU LIKE ME?
Are you stuck in the middle of the middle? Do you feel like the bologna in the sandwich generation? This is where we leave our sanity at the door and wade through craziness, confusion and chaos every single day. Are you taking care of kids, grandchildren, and aging parents? THEN YOU’VE COME TO THE RIGHT PLACE!
DID YOUR NEST FILL UP BEFORE THE DOOR EVEN CLOSED?
Did your kids finally move out only to have a parent move in? Is your house bursting at the seams? Are you tripping over skateboards and walkers? Are you changing diapers one minute and Depends the next? Oh wait, those are mine. Are you trying to find a balance in all of the chaos? THEN YOU’VE COME TO THE RIGHT PLACE!
DO YOU FEEL OVERWHELMED, EXHAUSTED, AND STRESSED OUT?
Are you trying to adjust to becoming the parent to your parent, the friend to your kid, all while entering the grandparent world? I know just how you feel. There are too many caregivers trapped in a world they couldn’t and wouldn’t get out of if they could. I’m here to show you that you aren’t alone. To dig out the tricks and tips to make your life as a caregiver/mom/wife/grandma/<insert 100 other titles here> just a little bit easier.
DO YOU FEEL LIKE YOU ARE CARRYING THE WHOLE WORLD ON YOUR SHOULDERS?

I always hope to make you laugh, sometimes you may shed a tear, but more than anything I hope to make you think. I believe if we stick together we can beat the odds and win at this crazy game called life!
Sit back, take your shoes off, have a great big glass of sweet tea (or lot’s of wine) whatever works for you! Find out what works for us as well as what doesn’t. I hope you enjoy our stories and our family!
