CAREGIVER STORIES

“For the most part, caregiving is just a thread in my life. It is an item on a to-do list, a topic of conversation, or some problem solving and research. But sometimes, it is much more jarring.”

Karen Lundquist

Caring for John and Alice

“When I think of our mom, it seems almost impossible to express what she meant to me, our family, and others who knew her. Because with her it is much more about presence, how she made us feel, and words aren’t easy to come by.” 

Karin Pauly

Caring for Nancy

“I remember the most difficult day. It was when we moved my mother into the facility. We had to lie to her about the move. Then the staff took my mom by the hand, and told us to leave the facility and not contact her for three weeks.”

Gail Cruikshank

Caring for Beverly
