Help Is Not the Enemy for Family Caregivers

November 4, 2013

As caregivers we often get upset when the person we are caring for refuses help and won't even try something new that might make life a little easier.... Yet when we hold that mirror up close to ourselves, we can see all too well that we have the same struggle.





Quote from Maggie Marshall's two page handout on Help Is Not the Enemy when you are a family caregiver.  Maggie Marshall, author and lecturer, currently resides in San Diego, CA.  For more information on her writings for caregivers, click HERE.
