Caregivers: Sometimes You Just Have To Ask!

be-healthy

Tuesday on ‘Be A Healthy Caregiver’,  I had the pleasure to visit with author and Caregiving expert, Dr. Amy D’Aprix.  During our conversation, Dr. Amy recanted a story about a taxi driver who was able to help her out with a simple request for an envelope.  Not knowing why she even asked the taxi driver for an envelope, she in turned learned a great lesson from the taxi driver when he said to her, “when you need something in life, you need to ASK, ASK, ASK!”

David AllenAs Caregivers, we can fall into the trap thinking that “we can do it all”, yet when it is time for a break or time for  respite, sometimes we don’t know how to ask for help.  Having the ability to ask for help is one of the first ways to help  ease Caregiver stress.

The main Caregiver in a family is usually the lead when it relates to disseminating information to family, friends and neighbors. Sometimes those family, friends and neighbors are just a conversation away from being in a position to help.  Help is not always assumed, and sometimes in order to get what you want, you just have to ASK, ASK, ASK!”

I am asking  you today is to simply listen to an archived version of Tuesday’s show, because I am confident that you’ll find some soothing words of wisdom from Dr. Amy because we all want to ‘Be A Healthy Caregiver’

    In my article about Solo Caregiving: http://babyboomersandmore.com/2011/10/20/solo-caregiving/ I give the same type of encouragement – ask! Oftentimes the caregiver hesitates to do so, to their own detriment.
